Reported in part:

"It has happened yet again.

After a night of partying and drinking games, Brian W. Threet was found dead on Saturday in the bedroom of his St. Cloud apartment, police said.

The two started drinking about 10:30 p.m. Friday as they played a popular drinking game called Beer Pong, Quintero said.  About 11:30 p.m., Threet left for another party, having consumed what Quintero called a moderate amount of beer. "He wasn't stumbling around," he said. "It was a relatively quiet night."  At 2 a.m. Saturday, Threet went to another party, Quintero said. Threet's friends at the last party guessed he stopped drinking about an hour later, he said." 612-673-4482 612-673-4921

Reported in part:

"Family members say alcohol likely played a role in the death of 20-year-old Brian Threet over the weekend in St. Cloud. The family is still waiting for autopsy results, but say authorities and his friends claim Brian's death came after a night of binge drinking.

It's the latest in a string of alcohol related deaths among college age students in Minnesota. "

"After a semester off from St. Cloud State University, Brian Threet had plans to re-enroll in classes this week."  "Joshua said his brother told him that there were a lot of parties going on in St. Cloud because students were out of class for winter break."
