Authorities launched an investigation into Carey’s death last week. Rowdy Gilbert, vice president for public affairs, said that investigation, led by the OU Police Department, has concluded.

It is the second death Delta Upsilon fraternity members have mourned in as many years. On Feb. 3, 2017, the body of Kyle O’Brien, 19, was found in near 321 Robert S. Kerr Ave. in Oklahoma City, a parking garage, at around 10 p.m.
