Penn State Scandal: Former Head Of FBI Louis Freeh Will Help Lead Independent Investigation

Penn State just held a press conference to announce the results of a board of trustees special committee meeting to launch an independent investigation to try and find out exactly what happened with former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky and any members of the Athletic Department who might have known what he was up to. According to a series of tweets from Ben Jones, that independent investigation will be aided by former head of the FBI Louis Freeh.

Freeh also helped lead the investigation at USC about the improper benefits Reggie Bush may have received, and also the investigation into potential bribery inside FIFA. Here are some more details on that investigation. All tweets from Ben Jones.

Freeh's findings will not be available until the investigation is complete and no interim reports will be made public.

"We will immediately report any instances of criminality to appropriate law enforcement authorities."- Judge Freeh

Six of the nine investigation committee members are also members of the Board of Trustees.

Frazier emphasizes that while members of the committee are BOT members, that Freeh has free reign to investigate, including those members

Penn State has not spoken about the cost of the investigation. Will go as long as it takes to find the truth.
