The family of the Dublin graduate who died at an Ohio University frat house this fall has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Sigma Pi.

Eighteen-year-old Collin Wiant died the morning of Nov. 12, 2018 after he was found unresponsive in an apartment at 45 Mill St—an unofficial annex of the fraternity Sigma Pi—around 3am.

10TV’s Kevin Landers reports that the wrongful death lawsuit states “he was beaten with a belt forced to beat others with a belt, punched, pelted with eggs and provided and forced to take nitrous oxide.”

The suit claims Wiant ultimately died of asphyxiation due to nitrous oxide ingestion.

10TV also reports Wiant was subjected to physical, verbal, and mental abuse; sleep deprivation; forced drug and alcohol use; and other forms of humiliating hazing.
