Lawyers for Victim 2 – McQuery incident – released a statement today saying that they intend to file a lawsuit against Penn State and others to “hold them accountable for the egregious and reckless conduct that facilitated the horrific abuse” of their client, who, they say, was abused both before and after the 2001 incident Mike McQuery witnessed.
They also released voicemails Sandusky left for their client.
We have conducted an extensive investigation and gathered overwhelming evidence regarding the details of the abuse he suffered. This evidence includes numerous voicemails left by Sandusky in the fall of 2011 as the likelihood of his indictment became apparent. Today, we are releasing two of those voicemails. As these messages indicate, Sandusky was attempting to exert control over our client even as his arrest for child sexual abuse became imminent.
Listen to those voicemails after the jump.
