(Newser) – Penn State's Kappa Delta Rho fraternity has joined the ranks of suspended chapters after police say they uncovered a secret Facebook page that contained some pretty damning images: photos of partially naked, sleeping women; photos of drug deals; and photos of hazing. "It appears [the women] were passed out or sleeping," Lt. Keith Robb of the State College police tells WJAC. The station reports that the search warrant pointed to two Facebook pages: One titled "Covert Business Transactions" that had been taken down after a victim reportedly found it, and a follow-up "2.0" page. The page counted current students and alumni among its 150 members.

Though the computers police searched were, as WJAC puts it, "wiped clean," Robb says "we have some printed out images from that account." A Penn State rep yesterday confirmed that "highly inappropriate photographs were posted of activities and events that are in direct violation of the standards and values of a recognized student organization and/or a fraternity at Penn State University," per Onward State. Both the school, its Interfraternity Council, and the national fraternity are looking into the matter.
