The family of a Cal State Northridge student who died in a fraternity hazing incident is suing the university and fraternity, saying they still don’t know what happened to him a year after his death.
Armando Villa, 19, died last July 1 after becoming dehydrated during a hike in Angeles National Forest while pledging for Pi Kappa Phi. School officials have said the hike was part of a hazing incident and that Villa had hoped to join the fraternity, which has since shut the local chapter down.
But Villa’s mother and stepfather, Betty and Joseph Serrato, say they have been left in the dark.
“It’s been a year since Armando’s death and we still have no answers,” Joseph Serrato said in a statement. “No one has stepped forward to tell us what happened to my son. I am angry and terribly sad.”
