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.
