Fallen Columbia Firefighter's Family Files Wrongful Death Suit
COLUMBIA - The family of fallen Columbia firefighter Lt. Bruce Britt filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Boone County Tuesday.

The university has decided to tear down the complex this summer. On March 13, MU spokesman Christian Basi said the university decided to tear down the complex "in light of the Feb. 22 incident."
