Freshman law student dies in fraternity hazing

A freshman law student of San Beda College (SBC) died Monday from injuries supposedly inflicted during a hazing incident.

Superintendent Ulysses Cruz, police chief of Dasmariñas, Cavite, confirmed that Marc Andrei Marcos succumbed to multiple injuries after being brought to the De La Salle University Medical Center (DLSUMC) in Dasmarias, Cavite, by three men and two women, identified as Soledad Sanda and Marilyn Guadayo.

Reports said that Marcos and several other neophytes were subjected to a hazing session on Saturday at a residential compound in Dasmariñas. The name of the involved fraternity in the school’s College of Law was not yet identified by SBC officials. The police though are looking at the Lex Talionis, Lex Leonum Fraternitas and Lambda Rho Beta.

The SBC administration has refused to comment on the incident, except to say they would issue a statement as soon as the administration comes out with a position on the matter.

A source at the College of Law who refused to give his name said SBC does not allow fraternities and sororities in the campus; neither do they tolerate activities related to this kind of organizations.

The University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Arts and Letters said Marcos was an AB Legal Management graduate of the school and was admitted at San Beda College this academic year.
