STUDENT FEARED VICTIM OF HAZING HAD ‘ HIGHLY ELEVATED’ BLOOD ALCOHOL
BATON ROUGE, LA Tests found a “highly elevated” blood alcohol level in the body of a Louisiana State University student whose death police are investigating as a possible result of fraternity hazing, a coroner said Friday.
Preliminary autopsy results Friday found no internal or external trauma, but did find swelling in the brain and lungs of Maxwell Raymond Gruver, 18. Tests also detected the presence of marijuana.
Gruver, from Roswell, Ga., a candidate for membership in the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, died Thursday.
