20-Year-Old Florida State University Pledge Found Dead After Party


Police are investigating the death Andrew Coffey, a 20-year-old Florida State University fraternity pledge who was found dead at a party.
According to Tallahassee police, no one has been arrested following the death of Coffey, a Pi Kappa Phi pledge and civil engineering major, who was found unresponsive at an off-campus house party that happened between Thursday, November 2 and Friday, November 3.
Coffey, from Pompano Beach, was found on the morning of Friday, November 3 at 10:23 AM EST after the Tallahassee Police Department received a call about an unresponsive person at a home on Buena Vista Drive. Coffey was pronounced dead at the scene.
The investigation into his death is ongoing and no cause of death has been determined at this time.
Florida State University Vice President Amy Hecht released a statement:

“We are overwhelmed with sadness any time we learn of the death of one of our students, and the FSU family provides extensive outreach to their family and friends as they mourn the loss of a young life. We do not yet have details surrounding the passing today of student Andrew Coffey, but we will work closely with the Tallahassee Police Department as it investigates to determine the facts surrounding this case.”

Todd Shelton, the Assistant Executive Director of Communication with Pi Kappa Phi, also released a statement to WCTV:

An associate member of the Beta Eta Chapter at Florida State University died at an off-campus residence on Friday, November 3 after first responders were unable to revive him.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the student’s family and friends,” said Pi Kappa Phi Chief Executive Officer Mark E. Timmes. “We appreciate the partnership and support from the Division of Student Affairs during this difficult time.”
Pi Kappa Phi has suspended all chapter operations and the members of the chapter have been directed to cooperate fully with all investigative efforts.

As a result of Coffey’s death, fraternity tailgates were suspended for the Florida State vs Syracuse football game on the following Saturday.
No arrests have been made at this time. Pi Kappa Phi has been suspended by its national organization pending the conclusion of the investigation.
Police are asking anyone with information about this case to call them at 850-891-4200 or Crime Stoppers at 850-574-TIPS.
