Police Investigating Possible Fraternity Hazing Death of Baruch College Student

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- A fraternity hazing ritual may have killed a New York City college student. Investigators say 19-year-old Baruch College freshman Chen Michael Deng died Monday after suffering traumatic brain injuries from painful, physical abuse while pledging during a trip to Pennsylvania.   

Friends say Deng had high hopes of becoming a member of the national fraternity Pi Delta Psi. Last weekend, Deng was participating in an unsanctioned fraternity pledging event when he was injured.

No arrests have been made yet in Deng's death.
