Evidence handed over in Robert Champion investigation

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Detectives have turned over evidence to prosecutors in the alleged hazing death of a Florida A&M marching band member.

The Ninth Circuit State Attorney's office reported Monday that it had received a case package from the Orange County Sheriff's Office involving the investigation of the death of drum major Robert Champion.

Authorities have said the 26-year-old student died Nov. 19 from shock caused by severe bleeding after a hazing ritual on a bus outside an Orlando hotel where the band was staying. The dead came hours after Florida A&M's annual football game against archrival Bethune-Cookman.

While several band members have been charged with hazing-related crimes since Champion's death, no charges have been filed involving his case. Prosecutors won't say if or when they plan to file charges.
