Hazing Investigation Launched After Dartmouth College Student Found Dead in River – Shocking Details Emerge!

Hanover, New Hampshire – Police are investigating the tragic death of Dartmouth College student Won Jang, whose body was discovered in a river near the Connecticut River over the weekend. Jang, a member of the class of 2026, was reported missing after being last seen at a social gathering at docks. Authorities, including a dive team and fish and game officers, found Jang’s body approximately 65 feet offshore.

The 20-year-old biomedical engineering major from Middletown, Delaware, was described by Dartmouth’s Dean of the College Scott Brown as someone who actively participated in the college community. Jang had attended a joint event between his fraternity, Beta Alpha Omega, and Alpha Phi, a sorority, on the night of July 6, where alcohol was reportedly involved, according to friends.

Police Chief Charles Dennis mentioned that there were indications of alcohol at the event, prompting them to explore the potential involvement of hazing. Beta Alpha Omega and Alpha Phi have been suspended during the investigation, as per a college spokesperson. This is not the first time these organizations have faced disciplinary action, with Beta Alpha Omega previously suspended through the summer term and Alpha Phi placed on alcohol probation.

While the cause of Jang’s death remains undetermined, initial findings do not suggest foul play. The college fraternity and sorority have yet to provide comments on the matter. The community mourns the loss of a promising young student as authorities work to uncover the circumstances surrounding Jang’s tragic passing.
