Memorial held for Penn State student who died after fall at frat house

A memorial service was held at Kearns Funeral Home Saturday for the Penn State University student from New Jersey who died last weekend.



Investigators say 19-year-old Timothy Piazza, of Lebanon Township, fell down a basement stairwell at the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house.



Members of his fraternity did not call for help until about 12 hours after it happened.



The university has banned alcohol at fraternity and sorority parties in the wake of Piazza's death.
