Tragic Passing Saddens Aggie Greek Community
College Station, TX: Joe Little tragically passed away just as he was beginning his college career at Texas A&M University where our community now grieves his loss.
Over the last few days, incorrect statements have been reported in the media about the circumstances surrounding his passing. College Station police are investigating after a justice of the peace ruled the cause unnatural, which - we were told - is standard procedure in such cases.
To be clear, Texas A&M is not investigating the situation as a fraternity related incident at this time. The Office of the Dean of Student Life is reviewing the weekend activities of the fraternity to which Mr. Little had just been accepted. The review is looking at whether any rules were broken related to an A&M- sanctioned organization.
Our continued sympathy goes out to Joe's family, friends and the brothers of Phi Gamma Delta.
