Robert Champion Jr, 26, the Florida A&M University band member who died of constant hazing, was reportedly gay, according to his parents.
On Nov. 19, Robert was found unresponsive aboard a band bus following the school's biggest game of the year. After an autopsy, police ruled the death a homicide from hazing.
Robert’s parents spoke with CBS News and visited the hotel parking lot where their son died after a hazing ritual.
Robert was a drum major in A&M's famed marching band, and he was allegedly beaten by his bandmates.
Pam Champion told CBS News:
"There's no way around it. It was wrong. The truth will come out as to what happened, I will find out how my son got there, because I know that he would not have willingly, knowingly just walked into that."
About 30 students were on the bus at the time, but no one has been charged, and the Champions have started their own investigation into how their son died.
