Coroner: LSU student had

East Baton Rouge Parish coroner Beau Clark told reporters that his office will be conducting a full autopsy in order to determine the 18-year-old's exact cause of death, as reported by LSU news site Tiger TV. "And it will not be tolerated at LSU", Alexander said.

Eighteen-year-old Maxwell Gruver died Thursday morning, September 14.

Authorities are investigating whether hazing and alcohol were involved in the death.

University spokesman Ernie Ballard said the teenager was brought to a Baton Rouge hospital by a private vehicle from the on-campus Phi Delta Theta fraternity house on Wednesday night.

Since March 2015, at least three fraternities have been kicked off the LSU campus, according to an investigation by KATC.

He further said all Greek activities at the university were suspended "indefinitely, pending the results of a thorough investigation".

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

"The death of Maxwell Gruver was tragic and untimely".

Alexander added, "Hazing is unsafe, irresponsible and unacceptable and it will not be tolerated at LSU, period".

A spokesperson said LSU police are investigating the case as a possible hazing incident involving the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, located on Dalrymple Drive in Baton Rouge.

Alexander reported no knowledge of arrests pertaining to the incident and said that a Friday autopsy was scheduled, according to New York Daily News. The fraternity itself has been suspended by its general headquarters and the university.

It added that any "individuals who are found to have violated our policies will be held accountable".

Barron wrote that he worries, "knowing that alcohol misuse and other unsafe behaviors exist, particularly within fraternity and sorority communities, where all universities see a disproportionate problem with hazing, excessive drinking and related behaviors, such as sexual assault".

"I can confirm that LSU police is investigating the death of 18-year-old Maxwell Raymond Gruver, an LSU freshman from Roswell, Georgia".
