A fraternity at Texas State University has voluntarily suspended its operations following the death of a female student from Burleson who had attended the frat’s party on Friday, WFAA-TV reported.
Jordin Taylor, 20, died after she was dragged more than 500 feet beneath a shuttle bus that was leaving the Cool River Ranch, a music and river tubing venue southeast of San Marcos, Guadalupe County sheriff officials said.
The bus broke down at the venue, and Taylor’s body was found beneath it the next day.
She had attended a Halloween party at the venue that was hosted by the Zeta Theta chapter of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, WFAA reported. At least one other fraternity also hosted the party, but Pi Kappa Alpha was the only one to suspend operations Monday.

At the party, Taylor somehow came in contact with the shuttle bus, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release Monday.
“Nothing indicated the bus had struck anyone,” Zwicke told CBS 11. “It was late and dark. The driver was loading people to take them back to the colleges. He didn’t see anything.”
An autopsy Monday revealed her cause of death as “consistent with being struck and dragged by the bus,” the news release said. The sheriff’s office believed Taylor’s death was an accident.
