Penn State Fraternity Accused of Posting Nude Photos of Passed Out Women on Facebook
The Kappa Delta Rho fraternity at Pennsylvania State University was suspended after members allegedly photographed naked women who were either sleeping or passed out and then shared the pictures online, police told a local television station.
Multiple fraternity members were accused of taking the photographs and posting them to two private Facebook pages, according to the search warrant obtained by WJAC.
The first Facebook group, “Covert Business Transactions,” was allegedly discovered by one of the victims and later shut down, the warrant said. A second group, called “2.0,” allegedly took its place.
The unsuspecting victims were mostly women in various states of undress, and it appeared that “they were passed out or sleeping,” Lt. Keith Robb of the State College Police Department told WJAC.
Members were also accused of sharing pictures of drug sales and hazing in the secret group, the TV station reported.
While police said the Facebook page had been wiped clean by the time they got the warrant, they were able to obtain 20 “printed images from that account,” according to Robb.
After the allegations surfaced, the fraternity was suspended.
“In response to the discovery of the two Facebook pages allegedly hosted by Kappa Delta Rho, the chapter was immediately placed on full chapter suspension by Penn State’s Interfraternity Council,” a statement from IFC said, according to the station.
The fraternity would undergo a “conduct review session,” the IFC statement read.
The Penn State Office of Student Conduct was also investigating the case.
