TCU student facing hazing charge dies, police say

A TCU student who was arrested in September in a hazing incident died Thursday evening when he jumped from the fourth floor of a parking garage on the university campus, police say.

Andrew Walker of Westford, Massachusetts, was 19.

He was pronounced dead shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday in the 3000 block of Greene Avenue.

Police spokesman Tracy Carter said Friday morning via email that there were no signs of foul play.
A spokeswoman for TCU said she was preparing a statement for release later Friday morning.

In September, Walker and fellow Kappa Sigma fraternity classmate Christopher Barksdale were involved in a hazing incident at the school in which an ambulance was summoned to take a pledge who had drunk too much to the hospital, police said. Barksdale was expelled from the university.  Read more:
