Florida A&M University student Robert Champion, who died following a suspected hazing incident Nov. 18 in Orlando, will be buried in the Atlanta-area where he grew up.

A memorial service for the 26-year-old drum major will be held this morning in Decatur, according to an obituary from the Willie A. Watkins funeral home website.

Earlier this week, Champion's parents announced their intention to sue the Tallahassee school after Orange County Sheriff's investigators revealed that their son was a victim of hazing while aboard a parked charter bus the weekend of the Florida Classic football game.

However, detectives did not provide details about what happened and no arrests have been made.
