If you thought we were done hearing about the graphic details of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse of young boys, you were wrong. A man claiming to be the still-unidentified victim no. 2, who Sandusky was seen raping in a shower, announced on Thursday he was going to sue Pennsylvania State University, and, as his lawyers said, he had "overwhelming evidence regarding the details of the abuse he suffered." That evidence includes audio of voice messages they said are from Sandusky to his victim ten years after the abuse, which is extra creepy. As if to prove their point that "over many years both before and after the 2001 incident Michael McQueary witnessed in the Penn State Lasch building shower," the lawyers posted to their website snippets from the voicemails they said Sandusky left their client in September 2011, less than two months before Sandusky was indicted and 10 years after the shower incident, which happened when the victim was 10. If you're curious enough to listen to them, you'll hear that in both voicemails, the caller signs off with "I love you," and in one says, "there is nothing really to hide." Shudder. Since the indictment last November 4, we haven't heard from Sandusky publicly except for that disastrous phone interview with Bob Costas.
