An investigation by ESPN has found that the University of Missouri at Columbia failed to investigate an alleged rape by one or more members of the football team. The article says that the university did nothing after learning of the allegations, and that the alleged victim -- a student who was a member of the women's swim team -- eventually committed suicide. University officials said that they didn't have enough information to act on the possible assault.
On Sunday, Timothy M. Wolfe, president of the University of Missouri System, announced that he is requesting an independent review of the case. "Such an independent review will be beneficial to all our campuses so that we can determine if there were any shortcomings with respect to MU’s handling of this matter and, if so, ways in which to improve the handling of such matters in the future," he said.
