Sandusky Brought Victim to Tampa

In the months before his retirement in 1999, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky traveled with “Victim 4” — a 12 or 13-year-old boy — to the Outback Bowl in Tampa, a grand jury reported.

In its report, a statewide grand jury in Pennsylvania concluded the victim had been “repeatedly” subjected to sexual assaults at a variety of locations, including “at bowl games to which he had traveled with Sandusky.”

The grand jury reported that the boy had become a “fixture” in the Sandsuky household.

“Victim 4 was listed, along with Sandusky’s wife, as a member of Sandusky’s family party for the 1998 Outback Bowl,” the grand jury found.

On News Year’s Day 1999, Penn State beat Kentucky, 26-14, in the bowl, the first time it was played in what then was the brand-new Raymond James Stadium.

On Thursday, Tampa Police Department spokeswoman Laura McElroy said “no one has been in touch with us” from Pennsylvania about the case.
