16 women added to NIU student death lawsuit

A wrongful death lawsuit for a student at Northern Illinois University was changed, in order to name more defendants.

19-year-old freshman David Bogenberger died after drinking heavily at a fraternity pledge party in November of 2012.

The attorney for his family added 16 female students to the lawsuit yesterday.

The attorney said they were in a sorority that took part in the pledge ritual, and should be held accountable.

22 fraternity members of Pi Kappa Alpha also face criminal charges.

    Kid wasn't 21; shouldn't have been drinking. It's his own fault,

    It is sad that David lost his life trying to be one of the group. What is sadder is the group caused this incident. Fraternity or sorority–if they were part of this incident, they deserve to be punished. Failure to do so will only enable this type of activity to continue. I asked my grandson as he was off to college if he was planning on pledging a fraternity. I was so proud when he answered that he wasn't as he did not approve of their life style.
