Via the AP: Police say no record of McQueary report found
“At this point we have no record of any police report being filed in 2002” by McQueary in connection with the Sandusky case, university spokeswoman Annemarie Mountz said, adding police searched their records Wednesday.
The football building is on university property, so campus police would have been the most likely to respond for a police call.
This casts doubt on McQueary’s e-mailed attempt to save face (for more, see here).

I don’t know who’s telling the truth here, but if the police were called and subsequently decided (or were asked) to hush this up, I’m not sure what kind of record of that one would expect to find.
@alkali: If the campus police was part of a cover-up, that would be really stupid of them. The campus police would be a prime candidate for throwing under the bus to cover one’s own a$$.
I said almost at the start, if the police were called that they would have turned it over to the University to handle. You really expect there to be a police report? Not in State College, not the city police and definitely not the campus police.
@Just nutha ig’rant cracker: To some degree this has already happen considering the one of the indited Penn State Officials — Schultz (Schutz?) — directly oversaw the campus police.
