Jerry Sandusky Autobiography Provided Clues
April 3, 2012 by staff
Jerry Sandusky Autobiography Provided Clues, Jerry Sandusky unwittingly provided a trail to at least four of his alleged sexual-abuse victims when investigators picked up his own autobiography, “Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story,” a new book on the scandal claims.
Pennsylvania state trooper Joe Leiter picked up the “clues” by just reading the names and looking at the photos of young boys that the former Penn State assistant coach mentioned in his tome.
“In essence, Jerry Sandusky’s own book had provided the investigator with a road map back to himself,” journalists Bill Moushey and Bob Dvorchack wrote in their upcoming book “Game Over: Jerry Sandusky, Penn State, and the Culture of Silence.”
Other chapters in the book listed the first names of about a dozen young participants in The Second Mile — a charity Sandusky founded for underprivileged youth, where he met some of his victims — “and Sandusky had seen fit to publish photos of himself surrounded by some of the boys with whom he had forged close relationships,” according to the new book.
“With this information, Leiter had a place to start,” it added.
Leiter, who retired in January 2012, was the first investigator who was not affiliated with Penn State University to probe Sandusky’s behavior in 2008.
His initial lead came by asking the first victim, who came forward from Central Mountain High School, if he knew or recognized any of the first names of the young boys mentioned or photographed in Sandusky’s book, which was published in January 2001 by Sports Publishing LLC.
