An independent report says the University of Missouri failed to follow parts of the federal law that governs sexual harassment when handling the case of a former swimmer's suicide.
The report released Friday says the Columbia campus should have investigated 20 year old Sasha Menu Courey's 2011 death after her parents raised questions about the events leading to her suicide. Menu Courey alleged she had been sexually assaulted by as many as three football players 16 months before she died.
School officials have previously said they didn't act sooner because neither Menu Courey nor her parents sought a police investigation and didn't respond to a later request for information.
The case has been referred to Columbia police.
The University of Missouri will hire outside, independent legal counsel to investigate the school's handling of matters related to former Mizzou student Sasha Menu Courey. The swimmer committed suicide in 2011, 16 months after claiming she'd been raped by members of the Missouri football team.
The University of Missouri Board of Curators voted Wednesday night to approve the recommendation of University President Tim Wolfe, to hire an independent investigator. The board has not yet chosen a firm, but stipulated that it must have independence from the university.
The board wants the inquiry completed in time for the board's next meeting in Rolla on April 11th.
