COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The parents of a University of Missouri freshman who fell to his death at a fraternity rush party have reached a settlement of their wrongful death lawsuit.

John and Stephanie Lipp, of Libertyville, Illinois, agreed to a $5 million settlement with the owner of the property where their son, Jack Lipp, died.

The 19-year-old Lipp died on Christmas Day, 2014, after falling about two weeks earlier at a Pi Kappa Phi party.

The Columbia Missourian reports (https://bit.ly/2oHLvoI ) the Lipps reached the settlement with Ginger C, LLC, which owned the house. They alleged Jack Lipp fell after he leaned against an unsafe second-floor balcony, and the home’s owners were aware the railing was not secure. The lawsuit says the company didn’t repair the property because it was scheduled to be demolished.
