MIAMI (AP) - A fraternity at a Florida International University has been suspended following the death of a female student who attended an off-campus party the fraternity hosted.

Media outlets report the Phi Gamma Delta held a formal event at the Bahia Mar hotel in Fort Lauderdale earlier this month. Kellie Fullilove, a 19-year old nursing student, was found dead in a room the next morning.

Fort Lauderdale police spokesman Keven Dupree says the death does not appear to be suspicious. Detectives are awaiting results of a toxicology report.

The fraternity was placed on suspension by the school and the organization’s national headquarters.

The university released a statement saying the fraternity would not be allowed to meet or operate, pending an investigation.

A telephone message left with the national headquarters wasn’t immediately returned.
