Police to arrest 10 people in LSU fraternity pledge’s death

Ten people will be arrested on hazing charges in the death of a Louisiana State University fraternity pledge after a night of drinking, LSU officials said Wednesday.

One of the 10 suspects, Matthew Alexander Naquin, also faces a negligent homicide charge in the death last month of 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver, a freshman from Roswell, Georgia, LSU said in a statement.

Eight of the suspects are LSU students and were active members of the fraternity, according to university spokesman Ernie Ballard. He said all 10 are expected to be jailed Wednesday once they turn themselves in to LSU police.

“The LSU Police Department has communicated with the Gruver family throughout the investigation process, and the university has also been in touch with them regarding today’s arrests,” LSU’s statement says.

Gruver died at a Baton Rouge hospital on Sept. 14 after Phi Delta Theta members found him lying on a couch at the fraternity house and couldn’t tell if he was breathing, police said.

A coroner said hospital tests found a “highly elevated” blood-alcohol level in Gruver’s body.

Witnesses told police that the fraternity’s pledges were forced to drink to excess on the night before Gruver’s

‘Nurse’ Arrested For Manslaughter In Woman’s Death After Botched Butt Injection


A Queens woman was charged with manslaughter for her alleged involvement in the death of a 31-year-old woman in July. The victim, Latesha Bynum, had received a “black market” butt injection and died in the hospital 12 days later after suffering dizziness and chest pains.

Bynum had gone to an appointment for the butt enhancement on July 15th. The “doctor” apparently used a Dunkin’ Donuts nearby as a “waiting room,” and the “nurse,” Allison Spence, met her there and took her to a Gramercy Park apartment for the procedure.

After the injection, Bynum went home but fell ill in the evening. Her brother said, “She went to the hospital and couldn’t breathe, and whatever was in her went to her head. She was brain dead and she had zero chance to basically come back from it.” Bynum died on July 27th.

A lawyer for Bynum’s family claimed to WCBS 2 that the alleged doctor “had a pattern of injecting unsuspecting women with ‘silicone poison into his patients’ buttocks and/or thighs.”

Spence, 44, was charged with manslaughter and “unauthorized practice of a profession” for the injection.
