The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Sports - — NEWS SER­VICES

The fam­ily of a for­mer Ohio State Uni­ver­sity team doc­tor ac­cused by ath­letes of sex­ual mis­con­duct says it is “shocked and sad­dened” by the al­le­ga­tions and is co­op­er­at­ing with the school’s in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The Colum­bus Dis­patch, in a story pub­lished on­line Satur­day, said the state­ment was emailed by Scott Strauss, the son of the late Dr. Richard Strauss, who killed him­self in 2005 at age 67. The state­ment said Strauss’ fam­ily learned from news re­ports about the al­le­ga­tions that ath­letes were fon­dled by Strauss dur­ing med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tions. The al­le­ga­tions date back to the 1970s.

The state­ment said, “Along with the al­leged vic­tims, our fam­ily seeks the truth.”

In­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tors are re­view­ing al­le­ga­tions against Strauss by men from 14 sports and are also look­ing into his work for stu­dent health ser­vices and at his of­f­cam­pus med­i­cal clinic.
