The LSU Police Department is investigating the death.

Gruver, from Roswell, Georgia, passed away after he was taken to a Baton Rouge hospital to be treated for an unspecified "medical emergency", according to university spokesman Ernie Ballard.

Police are investigating a Louisiana State University student's death as the result of a possible fraternity hazing incident, university officials said Thursday.

"We are investigating this matter with the utmost seriousness...as we have continually warned hazing is unsafe, irresponsible and unacceptable", Alexander contended.

LSU president F. King Alexander said all Greek activity is suspended until further notice.

"A young man's life was cut short last night, and we mourn the loss", the president said.

Preliminary autopsy results Friday found no internal or external trauma, but did find "marked cerebral and pulmonary edema", or swelling in the brain and lungs of 18-year-old Maxwell Raymond Gruver.

A toxicology screen showed no drugs or alcohol in Karki's system, and his cause of death was ruled as "arrhythmia, likely exercise induced", KATC reported.

The national office of Phi Delta Theta announced on Thursday evening that it had suspended the university's chapter, adding that its officials had been working with the authorities in Louisiana. The most notable was the death of 19-year-old Timothy Piazza, who died in February after an alcohol-related hazing incident at Pennsylvania State University's Beta Theta Pi fraternity.

Maxwell Gruver, a Phi Delta Theta fraternity pledge, died Thursday, LSU Media Relations said.

The fraternity contacted LSU's Greek Life office about 12:15 p.m.to inform them of an incident. "We are investigating the matter with the utmost seriousness".

Alexander offered his "deepest sympathies and prayers" to the student's family and friends.
