Files from Jerry Sandusky's charity are missing, officials say
Officials at Jerry Sandusky's charity, the Second Mile, said several years worth of their records are missing and may have been stolen, according to the New York Times.
Prosecutors allege that Sandusky, a former assistant football coach at Penn State who was charged on Nov. 5 with 40 counts of sexual abuse of children, used the Second Mile to find his victims. They now worry that their investigation could be compromised by the loss of the files, the newspaper said.
According to unnamed Times' sources, investigators served subpoenas on the Second Mile to learn the names of every child who dealt with the foundation. Members of the charity's board of directors learned recently that records from 2000 to 2003 were missing.
The charity has since located the records from one of those years, the newspaper reported, but the rest remain gone.
"It could be that they are just lost, but under the circumstances it is suspicious," a law enforcement official involved in the case told the Times.
