ND to disclose investigation into student's death

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- The University of Notre Dame has completed its internal investigation into the death of a student who was killed when a 53 mph wind toppled the hydraulic lift he was on while videotaping football practice in October.

   The university is scheduled to release the results of its nearly six-month investigation into Declan Sullivan's death during a news conference Monday morning. Last month, the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined Notre Dame $77,500, saying the school ignored safety standards that could have prevented the death. Notre Dame has told IOSHA it wants a formal hearing to discuss the findings.
   The Rev. John Jenkins, the university president, and football coach Brian Kelly are among those expected at the news conference.
   Sullivan was a 20-year-old film student from Long Grove, Ill.
