They knew that the 2001 information, they obtained, was secret. No one knew that they had the information. They knew no one was aware that they had the information.
What they didn’t know was that there was only one source for the information. They had to have obtained the 2001 information from that source. That source had to have obtained the 2001 information from Paterno. Probably out of the logbook in his house, without his knowledge. They also didn’t know that the 2001 information had similarities with the 2002 shower room incident but it was actually a separate incident. *(I was a witness to the 2001 incident that happened in the locker room at 9:30 in the morning. )
* This is what Linda Kelly believed( Because of the information they had.)
Linda Kelly: Attorney General Pennsylvania:
1. She believed that she knew the truth about the 2001 incident and knew that Jerry Sandusky molested a child in the shower room.
2. She believed that McQueary told Paterno and later recounted the incident with Schultz and Curley.
3. So, she accused Jerry Sandusky with abuse and the officials with cover up of information and failing to report child abuse.
