Mom of Nolan Burch speaks out on loss of her son


WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. -- When Kim Burch sent her 17-year-old son off to college last fall at West Virginia University, she couldn't have imagined his life would end at a party near campus.

Nolan Burch was pledging a fraternity, Kappa Sigma. Just days after his 18th birthday, Nolan was attending the final ceremony for the fraternity, which had technically just had its charter revoked. It was the so-called "Big/Little" ceremony.

Morgantown Police say Nolan drank heavy amounts of alcohol, causing him to lose consciousness. He died hours later at a hospital with a blood alcohol level at 0.493%.

"You have no idea the heartache of that phone call," Kim Burch said. "I never, never thought that this would happen to us."

Kim spoke to 2 On Your Side for the first time about the loss of her son and how she's honoring him.
