Okay but wouldn’t the Police be involved are somehow notified about Victim#6 which would put Sandusky’s name on the police radar at that time? Certainly if McQueary notifies the police on a second case wouldn’t or shouldn’t that register BIGTIME on the police’s radar?
Your first post said that the District Attorney working Sandusky's case went missing in action; that police would have brought in to the case when the DA was working it; and that they should have been watching Sandusky like a hawk.
I mistakenly assumed you were attributing the disappearance of the DA (who was Ray Gricar) to Sandusky and a Penn State coverup. I simply pointed out the time lag - seven years between the 1998 investigation and Gricar's appearance.
I agree that law enforcement officials would have worked the 1998 investigation. According to the Grand Jury presentment, both the University Police and the State College Police were involved, as well as child welfare, and Penn State officials.
And according to the presentment, Penn State Director of Athletics Tim Curley and Senior Vice President of Business and Finance Gary Schultz knew about the investigation. In Schultz's testimony (but remember, he's been indicted for perjury, he said as if in defense that when he saw the 1998 investigation file and report in 2002, he was 'surprised' at how big it was.
So you would think that everybody would be watching Sandusky (and that Sandusky wouldn't have been allowed to bring a preteen boy as his 'date' to the Friday home game overnight's at Toftrees Golf Resort and Hotel Center).
But everybody looked the other way.
If McQueary had told the police, it should have registered big time. But Penn State told The Second Mile in 2002. It was at least the second time The Second Mile heard about Sandusky. And The Second Mile kept Sandusky around until 2010.
Given Sandusky's fame and prominence in Happy Valley, people didn't appear to want to believe or to take action against good old Jerry. I honestly don't know that the police would have been any different.
