In response to last week's death of 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver, the LSU fraternity pledge, who died in a suspected hazing incident involving alcohol, Governor John Bel Edwards is requesting universities review their hazing policies. Edwards does not want to see another student die as a result of hazing.
"Louisiana has moved a long way over the last number of years in instituting policies and practices to guard against this, but it did happen, so we have to redouble our efforts," Edwards said.
