MISSION, Kan. (AP) — A mother is suing a shuttered Christian boarding school in Missouri, blaming her son’s death on a gang rape and other abuse he endured there. Agape Boarding School has been subjected to a wave of litigation as a series of abuse allegations emerged, but the case filed in federal court by Kathleen Britt is believed to be the first wrongful death suit. The suit said that mental health problems plagued Britt’s son, Jason Britt, after he left the private school. The suit said he lifted weights obsessively and ingested copious steroids so he would become so strong that he never would be victimized again. Eventually, his heart and kidneys failed, and he died in February 2022.
