• Vigil to be held in death of Florida A&M drum major


    ORLANDO, Fla.,None - A vigil will be held on Tuesday at Florida A&M University for the drum major who suddenly died hours after the Florida Classic at the Citrus Bowl.

    Robert Champion, 26, was found unresponsive on Saturday at the Rosen Plaza Hotel shortly after the band performed during the half-time show.

    An autopsy was done, but WFTV found out the medical examiner wants to perform a few more tests before the results are made public.

    Champion’s father said his son was healthy.

    "I think he was in pretty good condition. Ate, trained. No medical condition, I know of,” he said.

     Meanwhile, Orange County detectives said they are following up on reports that Champion was the victim of hazing.

    So far, a spokesperson for FAMU said there are no plans for an internal investigation.
