LSU student's death may have been caused by hazing, officials say

Max Gruver

Preliminary results indicate 18-year-old LSU student had alcohol and marijuana in his body at the time of his death.

An autopsy on Gruver is scheduled Friday, the East Baton Rouge coroner told Nola.com.

University freshman Maxwell Raymond Gruver was transported to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center Thursday morning following an incident Wednesday night at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house. Final autopsy results could take weeks. "As we have continually warned over and over again, hazing is risky irresponsible and unacceptable, and it will not be tolerated at LSU, period".

The college president said there are allegations that hazing and alcohol were a factor in his death.

The university refused to elaborate what actually happened to the teenager, but said police was investigating the death as a "hazing incident". All fraternity activities are suspended until the cause of death is determined.

A fraternity member was kicked out after being arrested for an alleged sexual assault not connected to any fraternity event at the University of Wisconsin-Madison last October. Phi Delta Theta's national office is also investigating.

"As we have continuously warned over and over again - hazing is unsafe, irresponsible, and unacceptable and it will not be tolerated at LSU, period", said university president F King Alexander at a press conference on Thursday.

"We're committed to investigating this situation thoroughly".

The national office of Phi Delta Theta announced on Thursday evening that it had suspended the university's chapter, adding that its officials had been working with the authorities in Louisiana.

A Georgia teen was killed this week after an alleged hazing incident at Louisiana State University.

Alexander offered his "deepest sympathies and prayers" to the student's family and friends.
