Greenwich Teen Found Unconscious at Indiana Frat House Dies

Brian Macken

A Greenwich teen found unconscious at a fraternity house on the Indiana University campus has died.

Brian Macken, 19, of Greenwich, died Tuesday evening at Bloomington Hospital, Keith Cash, chief of the campus police force said.

Macken was not breathing when he was found Friday afternoon inside the Phi Sigma Kappa house.

Macken, who was not a member of the fraternity, was revived at the scene but remained in critical condition until his death. Campus police are trying to determine whether drugs or alcohol contributed to his condition and are awaiting test results.

Greenwich Time reports that there was evidence of “possible drug use” in Macken’s dorm room but no signs of drugs at the Phi Sig house.

Cash told the Indiana Daily Student that police filed court orders on Tuesday for access to Macken’s computer, cell phone and hospital records.

IU Police Chief Keith Cash said his department will be meeting with prosecutors on Wednesday.

Macken was a 2009 graduate of Greenwich High School and played for the school’s varsity hockey team, the Time reports.

IU's Interfraternity Council postponed all large-scale fraternity parties indefinitely after Macken fell ill.
