Busville police were called to a house on Casper Drive Monday night for reports of a loud party. The house in question, located at 1704 Casper Drive, is university-owned and was the former Lambda Pi Eta fraternity house.
Police report three people were found in the basement in cardiac arrest. They were taken to Busville Hospital.
University spokesman Jon Smyth has confirmed that former LPH president and BusU student Bugs Meany was pronounced dead at the hospital of an apparent drug overdose. Two others, confirmed as BusU professors, were also taken to the hospital. One of the professors has died.
Police also allegedly discovered drugs and alcohol at the scene.
According to Busville Police, 85 people were arrested at the party, at least 50 of them students at Busemeyer University. Most have been charged with possession of alcohol by a minor, but Busville Police say that some will face additional drug charges.
A photo tweeted by a Bus U student at the party shows police making arrests.
This is not the first time that LPH has been in trouble. According to a press release from Busemeyer University president Stephen Busemeyer, the BU chapter of LPH had their charter revoked last semester for violations of the school’s alcohol and party policy.
