Father hopes son's hazing death will spread awareness. (WLS)

Gary Bogenberger doesn't expect to see an end to his grief if the 22 young adults charged with hazing in the alcohol-related death of his son David plead guilty on Friday, as authorities expect.

What Bogenberger does hope for is closer monitoring of fraternity events. Especially events like the "Moms and Dads Night" initiation party at the off-campus Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. David, a triplet and Palatine High School graduate, died there on Nov. 1, 2012, after being pushed to drink between 12 and 20 ounces of vodka in an hour and a half, his family claims.
