COLUMBIA — Missouri athletics department spokesman Chad Moller released a pair of documents Friday in response to an investigative story from ESPN "Outside the Lines."

The story is the culmination of a 16-month investigation into an alleged rape and the eventual suicide of former Missouri swimmer Sasha Menu Courey.

The show is scheduled to be broadcast at 8 a.m. Sunday on ESPN.

Menu Courey was allegedly raped by one or more members of the Missouri football team in 2010 and killed herself in 2011 after a long bout with depression. The ESPN investigation says university officials in a position to launch an investigation into the alleged sexual assault did not do so and also failed to handle Menu Courey’s mental health struggles with sensitivity.
