BATON ROUGE, La. —

Friends are remembering an 18-year-old Louisiana State University student who died after leaving a fraternity house last week.

Maxwell Gruver, of Roswell, Georgia, died Thursday in what police are investigating as a possible hazing incident.

Gruver was taken to a hospital from the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house.

Police in Baton Rouge are still trying to determine the circumstances that led to Gruver’s death.

“If you’re supposed to be a club full of friends and people who have life-lasting relationships, why did his life have to end so early?” said Gruver’s suitemate, Justin Franklin.

Preliminary autopsy reports released Friday showed Gruver had high levels of alcohol and THC in his system.

“It’s like normal everyday (and) the next day he’s not there,” suitemate Ty Meshell said. “It’s just weird.”

Officials suspended all Greek activities at LSU in the wake of Gruver’s death, pending the outcome of the investigation.

Meshell said he wants people to remember Gruver, not the circumstances of his death.

“Speak his name,” he said. “Don’t just let him be that guy who passed away at a frat party.”
