Baltimore County police charged two Towson University students Wednesday in a fraternity hazing incident that left a 19-year-old hospitalized.
Evan Palmer Francis and Alexander James Cantor, both 21, were charged with hazing and reckless endangerment. The university suspended the fraternity until the 2021-22 academic year in April after information about the incident came to light.
The investigation continues into an alleged hazing incident off-campus at Towson University. Now this is more fallout for the fraternity allegedly involved. The fraternity is still suspended at Towson, but it’s not the first time. Other TKE chapters have been banned from campuses across the country. Towson University and Baltimore County police are still investigating claims that a student was nearly poisoned while pledging the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. “
Everyone here knows now. But had that not come to light, nobody would know about it. They would still be here,” said Jared Welsh, student.
