End Of Spring Break Makes Hazing Investigation Easier At EKU

At Eastern Kentucky University in Madison County, officials hope students returning from spring break will make a hazing investigation easier.

23-year-old Brent Whiteside spent several days at a Lexington hospital. His family claims he was hurt in a hazing incident.

He was reportedly involved with the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. That fraternity has been suspended by both EKU and the national chapter while an investigation is underway.

EKU officials say it was difficult to look into the incident because most students were out of town for spring break last week.

    I'm the cousin of the student that was involved in the hazing incident with Kappa Alpha Psi at EKU. Now that Spring Break is over, I hope the investigation can continue. I'm still upset with the Kappa's and how they let this happen to my cousin. I'm greek as well, Que Psi Phi, and I know how the pledge process works. Starting with the Chapter Advisor and their DP, down to the individuals that participated, someone needs to be held accountable. In my opinion, it sounds like some sort of gang initiation instead of someone trying to pledge. I know for a fact, that the young man's uncle is a old school Kappa and he is not pleased with how those little punks looked out for his nephew. I truly wanted to ride up to EKU from Raleigh to find out how something like this could happen. Ending up in a hospital is not the goal of someone trying to pledge, even if "going hard" is the only way to pledge. Use some common sense people.
