According to LSU Media Relations Director Ernie Ballard, the coroner’s office identified the victim as Maxwell Gruver from Roswell, Georgia in metro Atlanta.

Gruver was taken to a Baton Rouge-area hospital from the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house where he was later pronounced dead.

LSU President F. King Alexander said all Greek activities are suspended indefinitely pending the results of the investigation.

“Hazing is dangerous, irresponsible and unacceptable. And it will not be tolerated at LSU,” Alexander said at a Thursday news conference.
