No OU Land Deal for Medical Examiner

Tulsa, OK – OU says no offer of land for ME's office made

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A University of Oklahoma spokeswoman says the school hasn't offered to donate land for the possible expansion of the state Medical Examiner's Office in Oklahoma City.

State Rep. Al McAffrey had said last week an offer was made. But OU spokeswoman Catherine Bishop issued a statement Monday saying no offer has been made and the university doesn't own the land near the Medical Examiner's Office.

Bishop also issued a statement from OU President David Boren in which he said he hasn't involved himself in the issue.

McAffrey said his comment was the result of a misunderstanding and miscommunication and there are no hard feelings.
