Louisiana State University Student Dies After Leaving Fraternity House

Louisiana State University Police are investigating a possible hazing incident at an on campus fraternity house Phi Delta Theta after a student was brought to the hospital overnight and later died Thursday Sept. 14 2017 in Baton Rouge La. Phi Delt

A Louisiana State University student died at a hospital Wednesday night after being rushed from a fraternity house following a possible hazing incident, officials said.

There were no internal or external injuries, however, cerebral and pulmonary edema were noted. Hospital admit blood and urine tests indicate a highly elevated blood alcohol level plus the presence of THC in the urine. An autopsy will be conducted Friday.

The university refused to elaborate what actually happened to the teenager, but said police was investigating the death as a "hazing incident".

Additional details were not released by campus police.

The tragedy prompted LSU President F. King Alexander to indefinitely halt all Greek activity on campus. Stay with WDSU.com for updates. "As we have continually warned over and over again, hazing is risky, irresponsible and unacceptable and it will not be accepted at LSU, period".

A fellow fraternity member took Gruver to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center's emergency department Thursday, where he was pronounced dead shortly before noon, according to the coroner's office. He also extended his condolences to the Gruver family.

All Greek activities were suspended at Louisiana State University on Thursday after a freshman pledge died in what is being investigated as a hazing incident.

Phi Delta Theta called the death "heartbreaking" and said it will decide on disciplinary action after the investigation is complete.

A house mom lives at the fraternity, according to CNN, but it is not known if she was present around the time of the teen's death.

"We are working to offer alternative on-campus housing options to those who want it", said Ernie Ballard with LSU.

"We're committed to investigating this situation thoroughly", Bob Biggs, the chief executive at Phi Delta Theta, said.
