Skip to comments.Jerry Sandusky case: Lawyers say they've found Victim 2, the boy Mike McQueary saw being molested
Posted on 07/26/2012 11:44:37 AM PDT by outpostinmass2
Victim 2, the boy who was, until now, known to exist only because Mike McQueary saw him being molested by Jerry Sandusky in a Penn State shower in 2001, has come forward to two State College lawyers.
Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici, two lawyers who launched their own investigation into Sandusky's activities over the last four decades -- and the reactions of people around him -- say that Victim 2 has identified himself to them.
As part of the investigation, they acquired voicemails from Sandusky to the man, and released those on www. rossfellercasey.com, the website of the Philadelphia law firm they are working with.
In both, Sandusky ends the message with "love you."
They released a statement that reads, in part:
"Our client suffered extensive sexual abuse over many years both before and after the 2001 incident Michael McQueary witnessed in the Penn State Lasch building shower.
"Penn State has now admitted and there is no longer any question that its top officials could have and should have prevented these acts.
"Jerry Sandusky's abuse of Victim 2 and other children is a direct result of a conspiracy to conceal Sandusky's conduct and the decisions by top Penn State officials that facilitated and enabled his access to victims.

He will be a very, very rich man. I hope the compensation provides him some measure of comfort.
Sandusky couldn’t have gotten away with it for as long as he did without some very powerful people covering for him.....I believe if they start investigating what happened at The Second Mile, they will uncover a hornet’s nest.
Now if we could just find—and find out what happened to—former Centre County DA Gicar....
Yep, there are bodies buried because of all of this.
Might as well start selling off Penn State assets now because when the victims' lawyers get done all that will be left of the place is a smoking hole in the Earth.
Our client suffered extensive sexual abuse over many years both before and after the 2001 incident.
“Penn State has now admitted and there is no longer any question that its top officials could have and should have prevented these acts.”
“Jerry Sandusky retired from Penn State in 1998 correct and was not part of the University - he was in his own charity that the Univ allowed his and other charities access to the football facilities.
Because Penn State is a “non-profit” they could limit thier liabilities in court. The Archdiocese of Boston used this to stop future lawsuits an end the litigation and make a one time payment agreed to by the victims lawyers.
Most likely the two lawyers will be very very rich.
That’s true, too.
I just puked.
weather he was in direct employ at the time or not, they were active participants in the cover up of the activities at their school
They would. It’s difficult to fathom so many people would cover up Sandusky’s behavior and not be involved in the actual molestation. After all there are not consequences, except being called a hero, to turning him in and sending him to prison. There are, however, consequences when you aid and abet by covering up crimes. There is more to this than you or I will ever know.
Yep, that’s what I am referring to, and you can bet that if true, the ramifications will reach far beyond Happy Valley.
“I believe if they start investigating what happened at The Second Mile, they will uncover a hornets nest.”
I would not put it past this pervert Sandusky as using this Second Mile org as a starting point for other perverts to chose kids from.
So was he hired back or was he an ex-employee and at a charity so he could do scouting trips, etc outside of NCAA regulations?
Yes, I had forgotten about him, but the investigation into his disappearance really needs to be re-opened.
Some Penn State apologist called in a local talk show to complain that these are “the darkest days for Penn State”. The host shot back “No, Penn State’s darkest days were when young boys were getting raped on campus and noone in power was doing anything about it!”
I posit this question . If a coach condones credit card fraud by another coach— ok, he is aware the other retired coach murdered his wife, would this justify the sanctions agreed to by Ped State? Why is is relevant to football? Why has the school football program been destroyed? Who were idiots representing Penn State? Sanctions have in the past related to a violation of NCAA rules. Do we now have a rule that if we know of a crime committed by anyone in the program— we banish football.We punished 87 innocent football players for the acts of two retired employees? This was a horribly stupid act by Ped State and the NCAA and totally misplaces the blame. I can understand get Pedterno’s name off campus but DESTROY FOOTBALL? unbelievable.
It doesn’t really matter one way or another.
He had keys and an office to Penn State’s facilities given to him by the President of the school. He committed crimes at Penn States facilities. The school knew of problems that Sandusky did while he was an employee as well as when he was retired using the locker rooms and showers for his assaults.
I’m curious as to how they “found” the victim. Did the person come forward, or did they know the name and just couldn’t locate him prior to this? Obviously, the victim knew this was all going on, and it would seem he didn’t WANT to come forward. I can’t imagine what the man must be going through now... Talk about ripping off a bandage and opening wounds - and especially if you aren’t prepared for being confronted by these things... It can seriously screw a person up, even if they’ve achieved stability and have dealt with the issues.
The money isn’t any real consolation for the suffering he has already gone through, what he will be put through in court, and what he will suffer with the rest of his life - whether he is able to move forward and accept the past (become a survivor), or not. It may be stress off the person’s back as he probably won’t have to worry about work, and could concentrate on his wellness, and living. But, it’s not going to take away any of the pain...
As for those who allowed this to happen, covered it up, etc... I really don’t have any words that I can say here neither about how I feel about the monsters, nor what I think SHOULD be done to them.
The first thing that flashed though my mind at this headline was, “Did they find this kid buried under Sandusky’s rose bed?”
Good gosh. The evil that lives in “Happy Valley”.
Football was the conduit that created the culture allowing the crimes to be committed.
Joe Paterno wrote a long letter defending Penn State and the football program before he died.
Joe Paterno never wrote a letter expressing remorse and sadness for the children victimized.
Sandusky used the football program as way to gain access to his victims. Sandusky was protected by the school and treated differently then if he was a lowly employee accused of similar crimes.
The NCAA punishes programs all the time caused by a few individuals.
The NCAA did not destroy football at Penn State. Penn State destroyed their football team.
Evidently, Paterno was not the only one who knew and covered up for Sandusky. There were several others on staff(that we know of) who helped cover this up. All of them should be prosecuted and the school should be fined. Taxpayers should not have to continue supporting this kind of behavior.
If I were a ball player I would not want to play for Penn State at this point. That university willingly allowed itself to become a hunting gound for pedophiles and homosexual rapists.
Should ballplayers be punished? No, but the university should and if the team is collateral damage perhaps they will never allow it to take place on their campus again.
Perhaps he isn’t in jail because they are planning on using him as a witness, and they gave him immunity in exchange for his testimony?
As for why someone wouldn’t immediately call the cops - I don’t understand that either, and I never will. I mean it was a CHILD - not even a teen that the sick b*st*rd could lie about having a consensual relationship with. It baffles me.
I think I may see a starting point...?
NM - I don’t read well enough sometimes. I see that the victim is the one who came forward to the lawyers. Still, many of the things in my post still apply.
Fox Radio News said that he came forward because he is suing PSU.
I guess molesting them elsewhere was just fine.
I ask you, why would they make that stipulation? What possible explanation could there be for that?
If you don't know what that is, look it up. A kind of semi-retirement.
And of course PSU and it's crazy supporters want to make some distance between Sandusky and themselves NOW.
He probably cut an immunity deal.
<>Now if we could just findand find out what happened toformer Centre County DA Gicar....<>
Funny how he was declared legally dead as this scandal broke:
Among other things, the article mentions a long-lost dictation tape from Gricar dated months after a decision had been made not to prosecute Sandusky for the first 1998 showering incidents:
Oct. 13, 1998. Schreffler, Ralston, Sloane, Gricar. Investigation going to Penn State meeting. Ray. Fran Ganter. Ron Schreffler is taking us to the football building and I will finish this memo, Sue, and either Ray will type something, handwrite something or hell tell me to dictate this and Ill give you the tape when we get back. Thanks.
This, to me, is fascinating. What investigation was still going on six months after the charges had been dropped against Sandusky? Consider, too, that on the day Gricar was legally declared dead, Gricar's nephew said Gricar had a sour taste in his mouth and felt that Penn State football had stonewalled the Sandusky investigation.
The NCAA has shown with its Penn State decision, that it is nothing more than an associate member of NAMBLA.
How they could let ANY team from PENN STATE ever be allowed to play under their banner again is beyond me. This is an organization that knowingly put their sports program above the safety of children, and not 1 lone wolf, but systemicall the most powerful people in the administration KNEW and covered it up.
If the NCAA can’t draw the line at allowing pedophilia to knowingly go on and cover it there is no line with NCAA, just greed. NCAA are nothing more than useless whores.
Sandusky was appparently outed during by John DeCamp while writing about The Franklin Cover Up
Anyone who has been following the Penn State debacle should read about The Franklin Cover Up.
On June 30, 2011, Lara Gricar, Ray’s daughter and trustee of his estate, petitioned Centre County for a court declaration of presumed death. County President Judge David E. Grine approved the petition and declared Gricar legally dead on July 25, 2011.
He was missing for 6 years. This is fairly typical in cases like these unless you think his daughter is invloved as well.
I could be wrong. Haven't heard anything else about it. But from what I remember it seemed pretty credible.
I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume this is an honest question and not yet another rant from a PSU partisan.
First, in Emmert's letter to PSU when the allegations surfaced, he explicitly referred to three NCAA bylaws that directly address the general conduct of athletic officials on and off the playing field.
Second, Sandusky could have raped and murdered a dozen nuns on the fifty yard line and PSU would not have been penalized had they reported it to authorities immediately. Instead, in order to protect the viability and prestige of the football program and its leader, the university's highest official conspired with athletic officials to conceal the ongoing rape of children for more than a decade.
The NCAA is a voluntary member organization, and is free to sanction its members as it sees fit. It is not a state actor and is not bound by due process considerations. PSU is free to end its affiliation and play football as a club sport or seek entry into the NAIA or some other organization that would have them (doubtful there would be any takers). Or they can accept the very merciful fate the NCAA has delivered to them and pray the civil suits leave enough land at the university for a football field.
What ever happened to the radio host with the story of the boosters and donors and the huge gay management at the Univ passing these boys around in the pedifile ring?
It was out for awhile when this broke last year - does not seem to be coming back.
I’m a Pac 12 guy - our biggest problem was Reggie Bush. 8-)
I think the reporter woke up with a horse's head next to him.
I thought it was curious that The Second Mile folded so quickly. I hope the records are still there — wherever there is now.
“but DESTROY FOOTBALL? unbelievable.”
What would your solution be?
