Pi Kappa Alpha president Alexander M. Jandick, 21; event planner Steven A. Libert, 20; and Alexander D. Renn, 19, all of Naperville, reported to police after arrest warrants were issued on Monday.
Jandick, of the 1100 block of Conan Doyle Road, turned himself into the Naperville Police Department at 6:14 p.m. on Monday, according to police. He was booked and released after posting $1,500 bond.
Booking reports for Renn and Libert were not immediately available as of Tuesday evening.
The three NIU students are among 13 fraternity members who turned themselves into authorities as of Tuesday evening, according to the Chicago Tribune. Nine other members charged have yet to report to police.
Jandik and Libert, as well as three other Pike members, face Class 4 felony hazing charges, according to DeKalb police. Renn and 16 other fraternity members were issued arrest warrants for misdemeanor hazing, police said.
NIU freshman David Bogenberger was found unresponsive on the morning of Nov. 2 at the Pike fraternity house, 1020 W. Hillcrest in DeKalb. Bogenberger had a blood-alcohol content of .351 at the time of his death; "a highly-elevated blood alcohol content about five times the legal limit," according to the DeKalb County Coroner’s office.
Police said Bogenberger, 19, had been taking part in an unsanctioned Pi Kappa Alpha event for the fraternity's 19 pledges on the evening of Nov. 1.
David's parents, Gary and Ruth, as well as his siblings issued a statement regarding his death.
“We are trying to understand the reality of our David’s death. It is almost impossible for us to accept that David is gone at the age of 19; that our future does not include his excitement at learning and growing; becoming a man; marrying and having children; that these events will never happen."
NIU suspended the Pi Kappa Alpha DeKalb chapter shortly after Bogenberger died, Chicago Tribune reports.
