To All Press and Media Personnel,
We have been made aware of a recent incident which has resulted in the passing of Chun Hsien “Michael” Deng. Michael was a freshman at Baruch College in New York.
Our early understanding is that this incident occurred at an unsanctioned event that was strictly prohibited by our organization. As a result of this incident, we are immediately suspending all new member education nationwide until further notice.
We are in the process of notifying all of our members and we will be conducting a full investigation into this incident. We will also be working closely with the appropriate entities involved.
In the meantime, we extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Michael, and request privacy during this period. Michael will be greatly missed.
Should you have any questions regarding the above, please contact Andrew Kayserian (National Executive Vice President) at email@example.com.
Very truly yours,
Andy C. Meng
National Executive President
