One of Florida State University’s more prominent fraternities is being suspended amid an ongoing rape investigation.
Campus police say they are investigating an alleged sexual battery that occurred at the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house. Authorities were called about the incident early in the morning on Oct. 11.
FSU officials have sent letters to the fraternity telling them because of the seriousness of the allegations they cannot hold normal activities or participate in intramurals. All contact with pledges must also be placed on hold.
The Tallahassee Democrat reports that Pi Kappa Alpha, or the “Pikes” as they are known, were at the center of an investigation into a brutal rape in the late `80s. The fraternity was kicked out of FSU and did not return for more than a decade.
