The State College District Attorney Stacey Parks Miller spoke out Today on the record about the death of Penn State student Timothy Piazza. He died on February 4th from injuries suffered from a fall at a fraternity. It sounds like she has some questions of her own. We spoke with Centre County District Attorney Stacey Parks Miller who said she couldn't comment on the investigation but could give us her personal point of view. According to the Dauphin County Coroner, Timothy Piazza died from multiple traumatic injuries after he fell downstairs at the fraternity house February 2nd. But what concerns the District Attorney is if he fell at 11:00 p.m. Why weren't police called until the next morning. "I'm ready to say that from a personal point of view, it's very disturbing to me and his family that no one helped him." In search warrants we obtained, police say fraternity members told them that he quote. "Drank a little bit of everything and got sick." When authorities got to the scene he had labored breathing and was not responding. "I'm sick and tired of seeing students die at Penn State University. And I think that the family and law enforcement community are troubled by that." As far as the timeline goes for the ongoing investigation Parks Miller says. "Well, we try to do investigations as quickly as we can, but we have to be thorough. There are questions about the events and the sequence. There are very many witnesses. And so we're working our way through them now."
