NORMAN, Oklahoma -
Workers at the University of Oklahoma have removed the fire escapes from an administrative building where a 22-year-old student fell to her death last week.
The Norman Transcript reports that crews removed two fire escapes from Evans Hall on Monday. Casey Cooke was found dead early June 3 near the building. The state medical examiner says she died from injuries suffered in the three-story fall.
OU's director of facilities management, Brian Ellis, says the fire escapes are not necessary for Evans Hall fire evacuation plans. The university says it's reviewing fire escapes on two other campus buildings -- Carnegie and Monnet halls.
The university police department says it had no record of trespassing on the Evans Hall roof or fire escape before Cooke's death.
