The medical examiner’s office has determined the cause of death of a 20-year-old student at San Diego State University who died in April.
Barzeen Barzanji suffered from accidental overdose of prescription medications, according to the report from the ME’s office.
He was taking a pain medication oxycodone and alprazolam, which treats anxiety.
Barzanji was found unresponsive inside the Phi Theta Kappa fraternity the morning of April 20. He was the president of another fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
Following the incident, members of the Phi Kappa Theta fraternity were suspended from activities and chapter related activities had to be completely alcohol and drug free. In addition, no guests were allowed inside of the fraternity house.
The suspension on Phi Kappa Theta was lifted this week, according to SDSU spokesperson Gina Jacobs.
