The Theta Tau fraternity says it is "deeply saddened" by the death of one of its members earlier this week.
On Tuesday, a man in his 30s was found dead in the Alpha Chapter of Theta Tau house, near the University of Minnesota campus. Police have released few details, saying only that they were called to the property on a report of a possible overdose.
The Theta Tau fraternity offered a brief comment Thursday, confirming the man was a member of Alpha Chapter at the University of Minnesota.
"We are deeply saddened by the loss of our brother," the statement says. "His family, chapter brothers and loved ones are in our thoughts during this difficult time."
The fraternity is not offering any other information at the moment, citing the open investigation by the Minneapolis Police Department. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has yet to announce a cause of death.
Theta Tau is a professional, co-ed engineering fraternity, founded at the University of Minnesota in 1904. It comprises more than 100 chapters and colonies, totaling nearly 5,000 members, according to the fraternity.
