Recently released police mugshots of five University of Mississippi students arrested in connection with the brutal beating of a student in a rival fraternity show four of the suspects smiling.
Accounting major Jeremy Boyle was in the Sigma Pi house October 6 when he heard something outside and went to investigate, Fox13 News reported. He was then reportedly beaten by five members of Pi Kappa fraternity. A university police report shows the beating happened about 4 a.m. at the Sigma Pi house—where Boyle is a member.
The fraternity brothers were stealing a donkey statue from the top of the Sigma Pi house, Boyle's family tells the Daily Mississippian.
Boyle suffered a concussion, several broken teeth, a ruptured eardrum and a lung contusion as a result of the attack, the newspaper reported. He was treated at an Oxford hospital and later released.
