Penn State Frat Suspended over Facebook Page with Nude Photos
A Pennsylvania State University fraternity has been suspended after allegedly operating a secret Facebook page that featured illicit nude photos of women.
Trace Gallagher reported on "The Real Story" today that the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity has been suspended on campus after police in State College, PA were tipped off about two secret Facebook pages. Members of the fraternity allegedly posted photos of drug transactions, hazing, and unconscious naked women.
The Facebook pages, titled “Covert Business Transactions” and “2.0,” were invite-only. After the “Covert” page was shut down, “2.0” appeared in its place and had 144 members, including current students and alumni, Gallagher stated.
A former member of the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity told police about the Facebook pages and "turned over a print out of the pictures from a hard drive," Gallagher reported.
Police searched several computers and the Facebook page after getting warrants, but "everything was already wiped clean," he said.
Penn State's intrafraternity governing council is now conducting a conduct review session.
"The national leadership of Kappa Delta Rho is committed to holding our brothers accountable for their actions," Joseph Rosenberg, executive director of the Kappa Delta Rho national fraternity, said in a statement. "We embrace the principle of respect for all persons and we will adhere to that principle in this matter."
Police say the investigation is ongoing to determine who made the alleged posts.
