Penn State frat suspended over secret Facebook page

A fraternity at Penn State University has been suspended as police investigate allegations that members used a secret Facebook page to post photos of nude women, some of whom appeared to be sleeping or passed out.

According to a copy of a State College police warrant obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, a former member of the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity came to authorities and told them about the page. The former member also turned over printouts from the page on a computer thumb drive.

Police say some Facebook posts also related to hazing and drug deals.

Police say the investigation is ongoing to determine who made the posts.

WJAC-TV in Johnstown, which first reported the allegations, says the page had nearly 150 members, some current students.

Police told WJAC-TV that they searched several computers and the Facebook page after getting warrants, but "everything was already wiped clean."

The fraternity was suspended by Penn State's intrafraternity governing body and the national chapter pending further investigation.
