Swimmer's death finally investigated by police

It's been almost three years since Sasha Menu Courey took her own life. The promising swimmer from the University of Missouri started skipping classes and eventually lost her scholarship at the university.

Sasha commited suicide at a Boston psychiatric hospital after being diagnosed with a personality disorder.

Now an investigation led by ESPN's "Outside the Lines" program is questioning the university's integrity, saying that the school did not investigate nor did it inform law enforcement officials about an alleged rape case.

Apparently Sasha was raped by a university football player in February 2010. Other reports are saying that a total of three football players raped her after a night of drinking.

Months after the incident, Courey confided to a campus nurse and doctor, saying that she was indeed raped.  Matters worsened when she received a videotape of her being raped by three men.

Rolandis Woodland, a football player and a friend of Courey, told ESPN that Courey may have been too drunk to realize that there were three men in the room.

On June 15, 2011 in a Boston hospital, Courey  swallowed 100 Tylenol pills. She died two days later from organ failure.

Following ESPN's investigation, the school has finally agreed to hire a law firm to review the school's handling of the case. Brett Sokolow,  the Executive Director of the Association of Title IX Administrators, said that there is still no clear evidence of a coverup.

"I certainly feel that the university should have been a little more proactive at trying to bring in information and find out more," he told CNN.

The investigation has already been forwarded to the Columbia Police.
