Robert Champion, 26, was found unresponsive in a parked bus in front of a hotel in Orlando, Florida. The tragedy occurred after FAMU’s (Florida A&M) football team lost to Bethune-Cookman (November 19), investigators suspect it is a result of hazing.

In Florida, if any deaths are the result of hazing it is considered to be a third-degree felony. The investigation will continue and will not be able to confirm if hazing was the result for another 10-12 weeks explained by Sheri Blanton, a forensic coordinator for the medical examiner.

In response the president of the University, James Ammons, suspended the marching band, Marching 100, from practice and performances until the cause of death is revealed.
