    Search warrants indicate the pledges were forced to drink alcohol the night of the Roswell native's death.

    The pledges were invited to what was called "Bible Study" in a group text.


    According to the documents, the pledges were asked to answer questions about the organization. If they got the questions wrong, they had to drink.

    In an earlier interview, Gruver's suitemate struggled with the tragedy.

    "You are supposed to be friends, club full of friends, life-lasting relationships. Why does it have to end so early?" suitemate Justin Franklin said.

    An autopsy report showed Gruver had a high level of alcohol and THC in his system.

    LSU has ordered a complete shutdown of all Greek activity in light of Gruver’s death.
