Penn State Scandal: Freeh Investigation To Be Released Thursday, According To Report

Independent investigator and former FBI Director Louis Freeh's investigation report on the handling of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal by Penn State is the arguably the last and most important piece in solving the mystery of the scandal. The results of his report will likely heavily impact the punishments and penalties against the university and higher ups within the program.

According to Ben Simmoneau of CBS 3 in Philadelphia reports that Freeh's investigation report will be released on Thursday.

The impact on Joe Paterno's legacy will also be determined by the release of the report as Paterno's family has asked that all the emails and records from the long time Nittany Lions coach be released as they believe they will show him in a better light than snippets that appeared to show Paterno helping to hide the scandal.
