West Virginia University issued the following statement Monday (April 9) on the death during the weekend of student Brian Weithenauer:
“The West Virginia University family is very saddened by the loss of one of our students, 19-year-old Brian Weithenauer from Toms River, N.J., Sunday morning (April 8). From all accounts, Brian was a bright student (pre-B&E), a member of a fraternity (FIJI) and a popular young man in the prime of his life. A member of our Student Affairs staff has been in touch with his parents, and our Carruth Center has also been to the fraternity house to offer grief counseling and will continue to offer counseling to his many friends as the days go by.
“Truly, this is a sad situation a tragedy to lose someone so young. Our hearts and prayers go out to the Weithenauer family and Brian’s many friends. A campus bell ringing is planned in the near future, and transportation will be provided to and from the funeral services in New Jersey.”
