ORLANDO, FLA. -- Prosecutors in Orlando have released thousands of pages of evidence in the death of Florida A&M University drum major Robert Champion.
13 people face charges in his death.
Champion collapsed and died from shock due to internal bleeding after undergoing a ritual hazing on a bus in the parking lot of an Orlando hotel last November.
Drum major Keon Hollis, who was hazed just before Champion, described what happens during the ritual "Crossing Bus C."
"You get on the bus and you have to take your shirt off and you basically have to make it from the front of the bus to the back of the bus," Hollis said in a recorded desposition.
"Ok, when you say, 'make it' that means run through the aisle, or walk fast," a detective said.
"Just get through it as fast as you can," Hollis responded.
Hollis said Champion had asked for months to go through the violent ritual as a sign of respect.
Champion's parents say their son opposed hazing.
Defendant Jonathan Boyce told investigators he actually tried to protect Champion.
"And I put my body around his body," Boyce said. "I had my body over his to protect him from getting hit anymore."
