ESPN is reporting that the University of Missouri did not investigate or tell law enforcement about the alleged rape of a member of its swimming team in 2010, after finding out about the incident more than a year ago. The alleged victim committed suicide in 2011.
Swimmer Sasha Menu Courey reportedly told a rape crisis counselor and a campus therapist as well as other campus employees about the assault. A former Missouri football receiver, Rolandis Woodland, also alleges Menu Courey was assaulted by more than one of his then-teammates, and says he saw a video of the assault after her death.
Federal law requires a school that knows or reasonably should know about a case of sexual violence should investigate it.
ESPN will air the report on “Outside the Lines” Sunday morning.
