6 UConn Students Arrested In Connection With Death of Jeffny Pally

Six University of Connecticut students were arrested on Feb. 24 for their alcohol-related involvement in the death of Jeffny Pally.

Pally, 19, died after being hit by a UConn fire department vehicle on Oct. 16. She had been sitting with her back against the fire station door when it was opened so that fire crews could respond to what turned out to be a false alarm.

On Jan. 31, Tolland State Police applied for the arrest warrants of six students who had hosted an off-campus fraternity party that Pally had attended on the night of her death.

Patrick Augustin Callahan, 21, of Mansfield, Matthew Aaron Moll, 21, of Mansfield, Dylan P. Morose, 22, of Storrs, and Jonathan Louis Polansky, 22, of West Simsbury, were each charged with eight counts of permitting a minor to illegally possess alcohol.

Dominic Robert Godi, 21, of Bolton, who was 20 at the time of the incident, was charged with possession of alcohol by a minor and conspiracy to commit illegal delivery of alcohol to minors.

Austin Lee Custodio, 21, of Pine Bush, N.Y., was charged with selling and delivering alcohol to minors.

Moll, Callahan, Polansky and Morose are members of the Kappa Sigma fraternity who rent the house where the party was held. Polansky’s name is no longer on the lease but was at the time of the incident.

Custodio used the fraternity’s debit card to purchase thirty packs of beer and five bottles of vodka for the party.

Godi transported the alcohol to a shed in the backyard.
