TROUBLE, AMIDST THE FOOTBALL HOOPLA.

We note the death of Northern Illinois University freshman David Bogenberger, a June graduate of Palatine High School.  Mr Bogenberger was active in Distributive Education Club of America in high school.  The organization is accepting memorial donations.

Mr Bogenberger departed this life from the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house, under circumstances that have led to the chapter being temporarily suspended.
DeKalb Police Lt. Jason Leverton said there were no obvious signs of foul play and no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death. Leverton said police found evidence of alcohol use near Bogenberger’s body, and they know he was one of several students invited to the fraternity house Thursday night.
The university has also placed police chief Donald Grady on administrative leave, appointing Bill Nicklas the acting director of the department.

These reassignments are a consequence of a sexual misconduct case involving a university police officer, unrelated either to underage drinking on fraternity row or to the coffee fund.
