A new criminal probe into Penn State pedophile Jerry Sandusky is looking into the possibility that the sick sex fiend abused a child along with a prominent athletic booster for the school, according to a new report.
RadarOnline.com said last night that the US Postal Service and the FBI are investigating Sandusky’s actions — and that a witness has claimed that the jailed molester and the booster teamed up to abuse a child who was believed to have been from his Second Mile charity.
“The person interviewed has brought up the name of a prominent Penn State booster and alleged that this man was involved with Sandusky in illegal behavior with young boys,” a source told the website.
The Postal Inspection Service is leading the investigation, and also is trying to determine if Sandusky sent letters across state lines to some of his victims for sexual purposes, CBS News reported.
Sandusky was convicted in June of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years in a scandal that shook Penn State to its core. He remains in jail awaiting sentencing.
In late 2011, federal prosecutors in Pennsylvania alleged Sandusky used the letters to lure his victims across state lines for his sexual purposes, CBS reported.
Investigators believe trips and gifts were used to seduce the victims and that six to seven individuals might have gotten letters.
A source told CBS that child pornography was found on at least one of Sandusky’s computers, though the images are not of his victims.
Postal inspectors also will reportedly look into The Second Mile charity, which Sandusky founded and used to meet young boys.
Investigators are searching a computer seized from Sandusky for any evidence of the letters.
Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola, disputed the new allegations against his client.
“We believe they are unfounded and ridiculous,” he said in a statement. “Jerry continues to maintain his innocence.”
