LSU President suspends all Greek activity pending investigation into student's death

BATON ROUGE, La (LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) - LSU President F. King Alexander has suspended all campus Greek activities indefinitely following a potential hazing incident at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house.

Alexander's decision was made following the death of an LSU student.

"As we have continually warned over and over again, hazing is dangerous, irresponsible, and unacceptable, and it won't be tolerated at LSU, period," Alexander said. "As a result, all, I mean all Greek activities are suspended indefinitely pending the results of a thorough investigation."

According to authorities, 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver was pronounced dead around 11:30 a.m. Thursday at Our Lady of the Lake hospital.

The suspension applies to both on campus and off-campus activities. An autopsy will be conducted Friday.
