The family of Northern Illinois University freshman David Bogenberger has filed a wrongful death suit against the fraternity involved in a hazing incident last fall

Relatives of 19-year-old Bogenberger are suing the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and 22-students involved in the pledge event that left the Palatine teen dead.

The family's attorney says frat members required Bogenberger to keep drinking vodka during a party last November to get accepted into the organization.

An autopsy concluded alcohol intoxication contributed significantly to Bogenberger's death.
