CANARSIE, Brooklyn — Family, friends and community members attended a vigil Saturday night for a 21-year-old college basketball star who died from a suspected hazing incident.

Bradley Doyley, from Brooklyn, was attending Buffalo State College when he died on the night of Feb. 18 possibly from hazing. The president of the college suspended Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity the next day.

But Doyley’s family is still demanding answers to his death. Family and friends are frustrated since details surrounding his death and that night are still a mystery almost a month after his tragic death.

In the meantime, his family said they will keep Doyley’s memory alive and keep saluting his achievements and contributions he gave to Brooklyn in the short 21 years of his life.

They marched in Canarsie Saturday and released dozens of balloons to the sky during his vigil, a symbol to lift up his memory.

Police are aggressively investigating exactly what led to Doyley’s death.

Doyley’s family are still waiting for his toxicology test.

Because of the investigation, his family was unable to bury Doyley, but he will be laid to rest next weekend.
