Coed Dies After Unauthorized Baylor Fraternity Party

By  | 

WACO (April 1, 2010)—Navarro College student Megan Helal, 19, died at Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center after her boyfriend found her unresponsive on March 21 at the Baylor-owned Arbors apartment complex, the Baylor Lariat reported Thursday.

Helal, who was from Combine, was a sophomore at Navarro College and a member of the school’s volleyball team.

The student paper reported that Helal was visiting for the weekend and that she and her boyfriend had attended a Sigma Chi fraternity party on March 20 at a bar outside of Waco at which there was underage drinking.

The paper quoted the fraternity’s faculty sponsor, Dr. Jason McGregor, as saying Helal’s death wasn’t related to Sigma Chi, however.

McLennan County Justice of the Peace Christie DeCluitt ordered an autopsy, but toxicology results won’t be available for several months.

University officials are looking into the unsanctioned party, the paper reported.
