The district attorney’s office in Center County, Pennsylvania, has declared new charges in the passing of Tim Piazza. Experts construct the new accuses of respect to the Beta Theta Pi storm cellar reconnaissance film erased by a society part following the 19-year-old’s demise.
Piazza was at the Pennsylvania State University brotherhood for a vow occasion in February 2016 where he kicked the bucket after a few tumbles down the stairs. Prosecutors contend Piazza was compelled to drink gigantic measures of liquor.
D.A. Stacy Parks Miller said club siblings gave Piazza 18 drinks in less than one hour and 22 minutes. Piazza never acquired any of the beverages himself, Miller said. “Siblings were coming up to him and giving him those beverages,” she included. “That is the proof that the republic now has.”

Twelve new brotherhood individuals now confront charges in the examination. Of the 17 society individuals charged, five now confront homicide accusations. Different charges incorporate attack, foolhardy danger, offering liquor to minors, initiation and messing with prove.
Observation video played in court allegedly demonstrates Piazza over and again falling, going out and tumbling head-first down a flight of stairs, and nobody called 911 for a considerable length of time.

“The tape is frightful, and it is grisly,” Kline said. “No parent needs to perceive what is obviously on this tape.”
