MU President Says Independent Counsel Will Have Wide Authority in ‘ Sasha’ Probe

MU President Tim Wolfe

The President of the University of Missouri system, Tim Wolfe, says he hopes the Board of Curators supports his call for an independent counsel to probe the circumstances around the death of a young member of the MU swim team.
The story of Sasha Menu Courey was featured in an investigative report on the ESPN broadcast ‘Outside the Linea’.
The report claimed the young woman was rapes by an unnamed MU football player (or players) in 2010 and the University did not do enough to protect her after the fact.
The ESPN story also said Menu Courey was struggling with mental issues near the end of her life. Menu Courey took her own life in 2011.
The Board of Curators, MU’s governing body, is expected to consider Wolfe’a request for an independent counsel at its meeting Wednesday evening.
Wolfe says, if the investigator is approved it will review the circumstances surrounding the case of the young woman. It seems almost certain the Board will approve Wolfe’s request.
The Columbia, Missouri police, MU’s hometown, has also up an investigation into the sexual assault.
Wolfe also says he wants all four MU campuses, UMKC, Columbia, Rolla, and the University of Missouri St Louis to review it’s policies on mental health and sexual assault issues. Sent from my iPhone
