Michael Marron, 20, died in a bathroom at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) chapter at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.

Washington County Coroner Roger Morris confirmed to KNWA/FOX 24 about the student’s death but did not release the cause of death.

The University of Arkansas Police Department Captain Gary Crain said a call came in at 1:23 p.m. on Saturday, January 23, about a student “who had passed out in the bathroom at the fraternity.”

Police reported the student, now identified as Marron, as unresponsive when they arrived on scene at 110 N. Stadium Drive.

The Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) Chapter was founded on March 9, 1856, and established at the University of Arkansas on July 9, 1894. Three of the last 11 Governors of Arkansas have been SAEs and the Alpha Upsilon Chapter is the largest SAE chapter in the nation.

The SAE fraternity has had legal issues for at least three decades. Violations, chapter suspensions, lawsuits have plagued SAE. Some of the incidents include cocaine-trafficking, drugs, racism, sexual misconduct, repeated hazing, and assault, to name a few.

Since 2006, more students have died in events related to SAE than any other fraternity, including some of our clients: Carson Starkey, George Desdunes, Jack Culolias, and Noah Domingo. This conduct should not, and will not, be tolerated.

The Fierberg National Law Group seeks justice for victims of fraternity hazing and wrongful death by holding fraternities, fraternity chapters, fraternity members, and schools accountable for their actions. Our entire staff extends our sincere condolences to the family of Michael Marron.
