WBRZ News 2 reports that ten people face charges related to the September death of Max Gruver.
Gruver, 18, was found unresponsive at the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity house and pronounced dead at a hospital later.
LSU Police announced Wednesday, the following people face the listed charges:
- Matthew Alexander Naquin, charges of hazing and negligent homicide
- Zachary Castillo, charge of hazing
- Elliott Eaton, charge of hazing
- Patrick Forde, charge of hazing
- Sean Paul Gott, DOB, charge of hazing
- Zachary Hall, charge of hazing
- Ryan Isto, charge of hazing
- Hudson Kirkpatrick, charge of hazing
- Sean Pennison, charge of hazing
- Nicholas Taulli, charge of hazing
Gruver's autopsy revealed he had an elevated blood-alcohol level and marijuana in his system, according to the East Baton Rouge Coroner's Office.
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is not taking a back seat to the controversy that's been swirling around fraternities and concerns about hazing activities.
Student newspaper The Vermilion reports that four fraternities have been suspended since an investigation began into the September death of Gruver. UL officials issued their suspensions late last month after receiving allegations of misconduct.
