In a national TV appearance This morning, the family of Timothy Piazza spoke for the first time publicly about his death.

The Penn State sophomore died in a fraternity hazing ritual in February in which police say he suffered multiple injuries in a fall while highly intoxicated. Piazza’s father Jim says it was “horrific. This wasnt boys being boys. This was men who intended to force-feed lethal amounts of alcohol into other young men. The basically treated our son as roadkill.”

Eighteen members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity are facing criminal charges. The fraternity has since disbanded.
