COLLEGE STATION -- KBTX has received an email from the Sigma Nu Fraternity stating on Wednesday it has suspended all activity of its Texas A&M chapter.

The suspension is pending the completion of the investigation related to the August 20 death of student member Anton Gridnev.

““Anton’s family and friends remain in our thoughts and prayers as we continue to grieve his death,” said Brad Beacham, Executive Director of Sigma Nu Fraternity. “We are deeply troubled by information released by the College Station police department and remain prepared to assist, however possible, with the investigation by local authorities. At the appropriate time, the Fraternity and University will complete their own investigations.”

In addition to the chapter’s suspension, the fraternity also suspended the four students arrested and charged by College Station police for illegal possession of drugs.
