Read the report on the fatal FSU frat party: ‘The most intoxicated’ they had ever been

"On Nov. 3, 2017, the Tallahassee Police Department responded to 1012 Buena Vista Drive … in reference to a death investigation."

So begins a charging document in the case of Andrew Coffey, the 20-year-old Florida State University student who was found unresponsive during a night of partying at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house.

READ THE REPORT: A ‘big-little’ party with 16 liquor bottles, vomiting and a fear of being ostracized if pledges didn’t participate

The medical examiner determined that Coffey died of "acute ethanol toxicity." A probable cause affidavit filed Wednesday in Tallahassee said "the party was characterized by multiple interviewees as the most intoxicated those in attendance had ever been."

Nine men in their early 20s were charged with an offense listed as "College Hazing-Cause Injury or Death."
