UNC's Kappa Sigma Chapter Loses Charter After Frat Brothers Named in Drug Investigation

The first of three has fallen.

UNC's Kappa Sigma chapter, one of the fraternities name-dropped in a years-long federal drug cartel investigation, had its charter revoked by the national organization for violating its code of conduct. The decision was made on Friday.

Mitchell Wilson, the national organization's executive director, confirmed the decision to the INDY. The university declined to comment on the organization's decision.

Two of the 21 people charged in an alleged multi-million dollar drug cartel were former members of Kappa Sigma's Alpha Mu chapter at UNC-Chapel Hill. The men, who were both in the fraternity during the times they allegedly sold drugs, had some of the biggest fingerprints in the case: former member David Bayha allegedly sold an eighth to an undercover cop, and posted cannabis prices in the fraternity group message. Jason Xu's iCloud messages showed evidence of him buying half an ounce of cocaine every other week for two school years, which was confirmed by a cooperating defendant.

Kappa Sigma, Phi Gamma Delta, and Beta Theta Pi have all been suspended by the university, although no permanent decision has been made. Phi Gamma Delta is also suspended by their national organization, as was Kappa Sigma before this announcement. Beta Theta Pi, perhaps the best-positioned of the three in terms of wealth, alumni connections, and lack of involvement in the drug trafficking ring, has not faced national repercussions.
