A Sigma Pi student was attacked on campus in early October and suffered a lung contusion, ruptured eardrum, several broken teeth and a concussion, according to a source familiar with the incident who was interviewed by The Daily Mississippian this weekend.

Jeremy Boyle was working on his homework in the dining room of the Sigma Pi fraternity house around 4 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 6, when he saw someone in the backyard and went outside to investigate, the source said.

He found five men in the yard. One was wearing black facemask and the others were in  “pledge attire” from another campus fraternity, the source said.

Boyle, a junior accountancy major from Pennsylvania, was treated in the University of Mississippi Health Center and then best online casino transferred to Baptist Memorial Hospital.

The Daily Mississippian contacted the University Police Department on Friday and Saturday for an update on the investigation and a copy of the police report, and was told information on the case would not be available until Monday.

The Daily Mississippian also contacted the Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct on Friday. Director Aniesha K. Mitchell declined to comment on the case.
