Grand Jury Spends Second Day Investigating Death Of FSU Fraternity Pledge

A grand jury is spending a second day hearing testimony from Florida State University students and school officials concerning the death of a fraternity pledge from Pompano Beach.  

Andrew Coffey was 20 when he died at an off-campus party on November 3rd.  

Dozens of students and their attorneys crowded the third floor of the courthouse and two courtrooms were opened as overflow space. The same scene was set Tuesday during a second day of proceedings.

Among the first witnesses to be interviewed behind closed doors at the Leon County Courthouse on Monday was FSU President John Thrasher. 

Thrasher suspended all Greek activity at FSU following Coffey's death.

Prosecutors are working to determine if criminal charges are appropriate following Coffey's death. They expect to question about 50 people.
