Sasha Menu Courey’s parents hope Mizzou learns from investigation

The independent report by the Dowd Bennett Law Firm in Clayton, Mo., into MU’s handling of sexual assault allegations by former swimmer Sasha Menu Courey was critical of the university, but her parents said they are pleased with the investigation’s thoroughness and recommendations. “Our daughter Sasha went through a perfect storm of unfortunate events that led to her suicide,” Menu Courey’s parents said in a statement released Monday. “Although we cannot change the past, we hope that the lessons learned from the investigation will lead to positive changes for future athletes and students.”
