University Of Missouri Mishandled Sexual Assault Case, Review Finds"An independent report released Friday says the University of Missouri failed to follow parts of the federal law that governs sexual harassment on campus when handling the case of a former swimmer's suicide.
The report concludes administrators on 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 was sexually assaulted during her freshman year by as many as three football players, 16 months before she died."
"The report makes no specific recommendations for possible changes but instead provides a detailed accounting of the university's response. Among its primary findings: The university lacked a policy advising employees of their obligations to report suspected sexual assault and harassment, which federal law suggested." (Huffington Post).
