"No internal or external trauma noted".

The preliminary results of Maxwell Gruver's autopsy showed evidence of a highly-elevated blood alcohol level and the presence of THC.

Clark said the hospital tests will be confirmed in detail through additional toxicology tests.

Coroner Dr. William "Beau" Clark issued a statement Friday morning on the death of Maxwell Gruver, 18, of Roswell, Georgia.

The Louisiana State University police are investigating Gruver's death as a "potential hazing incident", LSU Media Relations Director Ernie Ballard said during a news conference Thursday. Stay with WDSU.com for updates. "As we have continually warned over and over again, hazing is unsafe, irresponsible and unacceptable". More detailed toxicology analysis is to come, so the autopsy could take four weeks longer to complete, the office said.

All fraternity activities have been suspended during the investigation. "And it will not be tolerated at LSU", Alexander said.

"We're committed to investigating this situation thoroughly", said Bob Biggs, the chief executive at Phi Delta Theta.

A house mom lives at the fraternity, according to CNN, but it is not known if she was present around the time of the teen's death.

A statement issued Friday by LSU and East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore said Gruver's parents didn't want to be contacted by reporters or make a public statement about their son's death.

The national Phi Delta Theta General Headquarters also announced that it is suspending all operations of the fraternity's chapter on LSU's campus.

Barron wrote that he worries, "knowing that alcohol misuse and other risky behaviors exist, particularly within fraternity and sorority communities, where all universities see a disproportionate problem with hazing, excessive drinking and related behaviors, such as sexual assault".
