Authorities looking into hazing following discovery of deceased Dartmouth student in river

Investigation into Potential Hazing Involvement in Dartmouth Student’s Death

Authorities are investigating whether hazing played a role in the tragic death of Dartmouth College student Won Jang, whose body was discovered in the Connecticut River over the weekend. The 20-year-old biomedical engineering major from Delaware was last seen by the docks on Saturday night and reported missing the following day.

Jang, a beloved member of the Dartmouth community, was found in the water about 65 feet offshore. Friends of his revealed that he had attended a joint event with his fraternity and a sorority on the night of his disappearance, which involved alcohol. Police are now looking into the possibility of hazing being a factor in his death.

While the cause of death has not been determined, initial investigations do not suggest foul play. However, authorities are actively pursuing leads and awaiting autopsy results to shed light on the circumstances surrounding Jang’s passing.

In light of the incident, the college has suspended both the fraternity and sorority involved pending further investigation. Jang’s girlfriend, Lydia Jin, spoke fondly of him, describing him as the kindest person she knew with ambitious dreams of making a scientific breakthrough and a deep care for his loved ones.

As the Dartmouth community grieves the loss of Jang, they are left grappling with the devastating reality of his untimely death. The investigation into the tragic event continues as friends, family, and authorities seek answers and justice for Won Jang.
