ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Family members of a Washington University student who fell to his death from a balcony say they believe the school is partly responsible for his death.
Yongsang Soh died when he fell from a 23rd floor balcony in October 2013. The death was first ruled a suicide but the death certificate was changed a year later to say the cause of death was undetermined.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Soh’s family this summer sought a $50 million settlement from Washington University. In exchange, the family promised not to sue or publicize concerns about what they called the school’s lax enforcement of discipline.
The school rejected that proposal. University spokeswoman Jill Friedman said Saturday the school would not comment on pending legal matters.
