Police: PSU Frat Posted Photos of Nude Unconscious Women on Facebook
Police are investigating a Penn State fraternity that allegedly operated two private Facebook pages where members posted photographs of nude, unconscious women, drug sales and hazing.
A former member of Kappa Delta Rho told police about the pages. He said they included images of “marijuana and edibles, concentrates, ADD medication, and some cocaine,” according a copy of the police warrant obtained by Philadelphia magazine.
“Lol delete those or we will be on cnn in a week,” a member commented on one page, according to a print-out from the warrant.
As if all of this wasn’t mind-numbingly dumb enough, one of Kappa Delta Rho’s pages was reportedly named “Covert Business Transactions.” That page was shut down, and, according to the warrant, a new one called “2.o” was created, after a victim reportedly “observed a photograph of her topless which was posted to the group” and then “threatened the fraternity.”
Police said, “Some of the postings were of nude females that appeared to be passed out and nude or in other sexual or embarrassing positions. It appears from the photos provided that the individuals in the photos are not aware that the photos had been taken.”
The invitation-only “2.0” page had 144 members, including current and past students, the warrant said.
The university’s Interfraternity Council has suspended the frat, according to Johnstown TV station WJAC, which first reported the allegations. Kappa Delta Rho did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
A partial copy of the search warrant is below. All names have been redacted.
