The parents of Tucker Hipps have filed a lawsuit on Monday in the death of their son, Tucker Hipps.

The South Carolina Chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, Clemson University and several individuals were the main defendants in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit states the following about Clemson University - "It is liable for the negligent acts of its agents, contractors, and employees, under the theories of non-delegable duty and respondeat superior."

Oconee County announced 10 days ago that they were offering a $20,000 reward for information (anonymous) that helps in the Tucker Hipps' police investigation.

There is also a two thousand dollar reward from Crime Stoppers of Oconee County.

The 19-year-old Clemson student fell from the Highway 93 bridge and died during a run with his fraternity brothers from Sigma Phi Epsilon on September 22nd, 2014.

Hipps went to Wren High School before Clemson and graduated there in 2013.
