Drinking game might have preceded LSU fraternity pledge's death

Drinking game might have preceded LSU fraternity pledge's death”

According to the warrants, LSUPD seized several items on September 14, the day of Gruver's death, including cellphones containing video evidence of the events as well as text messages about "Bible Study", a pair of sneakers, a Lorex Camera Control box, an Acer video monitor, a Lorex remote control, several power cords, a bottle of Ecolab floor cleaner, two strands of white knotted rope, one pledge test, a Home Depot five gallon bucket, two boxes of Nighttime Vanapain reliever, a duffel bag with several Natural Light Beer cans, several bottles of hard liquor, a bottle of Jim Beam Apple, a glass smoking pipe, a Galaxy S7 Edge Phone, a GoPro camera, cleaning supplies and various biological samples.

Two people drove him to hospital immediately but he died later that day. The searches authorized by those warrants were conducted on the day Gruver died and the following days.

With hazing considered a possible factor in the death, LSU officials have empaneled an 11-person taskforce to closely examine the school's fraternities and sororities to ensure student safety, and ordered a complete shutdown of all Greek Life activity - although some restrictions have since been lifted.

They also confiscated a mobile phone, which allegedly belonged to the fraternity member who sent the group text message about the "Bible Study" session.

A coroner said hospital tests found a "highly elevated" blood-alcohol level in Gruver's body.

Authorities have seized a bag filled with beer cans, bottles of liquor, a glass smoking pipe, a "pledge test", cleaning supplies and two strands of white knotted rope from the fraternity house, according to a search warrant.

Police say that they have obtained video footage from inside the fraternity house, as well as text messages about what was happening to the teen.

The pledges were invited to what was called "Bible Study" in a group text.

- New information has been released about the death of a Louisiana State University student from Roswell.

"There are allegations of Maxwell's death, there were allegations that they were related to hazing, but I want to emphasize that this is an evolving situation".

East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore has said police interviewed many fraternity members but some had refused to give a statement and were hiring lawyers.
