(WASHINGTON TIMES) Joe Paterno was intimately involved in FBI investigations into a series of threatening letters sent to the late Penn State football coach and his staff in the late 1970s and early 1980s, according to his FBI file obtained by The Washington Times.
The file’s 868 pages don’t mention Jerry Sandusky or the former longtime assistant coach’s child sexual abuse scandal that led to him being found guilty on 44 of 48 counts of child sexual abuse earlier this year.
Forty-four pages of Paterno’s file weren’t released. The FBI, which didn’t indicate what period or topic is covered by the unreleased pages, cited exemptions concerning unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and revealing a confidential source.
