FAMU Student Had Extensive Bleeding

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The Florida A&M student whose death last month has uncovered a culture of hazing at the school had extensive bleeding in his back and right shoulder.

A full autopsy report released Wednesday says that Robert Champion had bruising on his chest and abrasions below his waist.

The medical examiner’s office in Orlando released a synopsis of the autopsy report last week in which it concluded that Champion’s death was a homicide.

The full autopsy report provides greater details on his injuries.

State and local authorities are investigating the death. Any death involving hazing is a third-degree felony in Florida, but no charges have been filed so far. Three male band members were arrested in a separate probe involving the recent beating of a female member whose thigh bone was broken.
