Autopsy results are in for the Fresno State freshman who died after a night of drinking at a fraternity party.
The Fresno County Coroner's Office says 18-year-old Philip Dhanens died from acute alcohol poisoning. They say at the time of his death, his blood alcohol level was 0.36. Officials say as a result of his alcohol consumption that Dhanens brain had swelled. Dhanens died September 2nd, just two days after the night of drinking at the Theta Chi fraternity house.
Dr. David Hadden said his office waited to reveal the toxicology reports, because he wanted to make sure there were no other drugs in his system. "When you do some of the more esoteric tests for other drugs, they have to go out of tow, they're done nationally, and that takes quite a bit of time."
The Theta Chi fraternity has been suspended from Fresno State, as well as by its national fraternity. Fresno Police are continuing its investigation into Dhanens' death.
