Public records show billionaire Les Wexner criticized Ohio State University for not being more open about what happened when an ex-security guard damaged dozens of works of art at the museum bearing his last name.

The former OSU trustee told the university being secretive encourages suspicion and damages the public trust. The former guard shot himself after damaging more than 30 pieces of art in 2015. Ohio State has a track record of shielding sensitive public records, but says it evaluates each records request on its own merits.
