Police raided a house near Boston University yesterday and found five students trapped in the basement. Stripped to their underwear, they were organized in a circle and bound together with duct tape. Here's what the stunned police had to say about what they saw at 24 Ashford Street:

“All five were shivering and had horrified and fearful looks on their faces. They were all tied together via duct tape wrist to wrist to form a human chain. Officer asked if they were alright and got no verbal answer. Victim looked right at Officer and with tears coming down his face shook his head from right to left and back indicating no.”

You think that's bad? They were had red welts on their necks and back, indicating that they were probably beaten. They were also covered in various condiments, including fish sauce, chili sauce, hot sauce, honey, mustard and there were sardine cans strewn about. So not only did they reek to the high heavens, their injuries were probably burning as well.

According to police, this is an underground fraternity that goes by Alpha Epsilon Pi—think of Will Ferrell & Co. in Old School. The school was already investigation the organization for previous fuckery, and while no arrests have been made, don't be too surprised if criminal charges are filed.
