Saturday morning around 9:15 Richmond Police were called to the 100 block of West Clay Street for the report of a person down. Officers arrived and found Oakes down and unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim was identified as Adam Oakes age 19.

RTD is reporting that Oakes was the victim of hazing by the Delta Chi fraternity.

Oakes visited a house in the 100 block of West Clay Street on Friday night, where he was given a handle of Jack Daniels whiskey and told to drink, White said.

As part of the fraternity’s rush ceremonies, he was blindfolded, causing him to run into a tree and hit his head, said White, who has spoken with the police and people who attended the event. Onlookers helped him into the house, where he lay down on a couch on his side and was left to fall asleep, she said. In the morning, he was found lying face down, and police were called.

Officials from VCU, the Richmond Police Department and Delta Chi’s national organization said they were unable on Sunday evening to confirm or deny the details of White’s account.

VCU has suspended the Delta Chi fraternity and Delta Chi headquarters issued the following statement to 8News:

We were devastated to learn of the passing of a student at Virginia Commonwealth University and extend our condolences to the family, friends and everyone touched by this heart-breaking news. The health and safety of our chapter communities is always a top priority for The Delta Chi Fraternity, which suspended the VCU chapter after learning of the incident late Saturday afternoon. We encourage all members to cooperate with law enforcement investigative efforts and all directives of the University Administration.

VCU issued this Twitter statement on Sunday.
