    The University of Mississippi has suspended and disbanded its second fraternity this year following hazing investigations.

    The Daily Mississippian reported Thursday that the Ole Miss chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha has been suspended until 2021. The investigation revealed "disappointing and troubling activities," according to a letter from Melinda Sutton Noss, assistant vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of students.

    The chapter has also been suspended by its national organization until 2020.

    The fraternity is the second this year to be disbanded at Ole Miss following hazing investigations after Sigma Alpha Epsilon was suspended in December. According to Noss' letter, other Greek organizations are facing hazing allegations, as well.

Officers removed a 10-month-old child from the vehicle but left the 4-year-old girl, who spent the night in the tow lot where temperatures dropped to 19 degrees.
