Sign left at former site of Joe Paterno statue
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - July 22, 2013 (WPVI) -- A sign reading "We won't forget" has been left at the site where former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno's statue once stood in State College. It marks the one-year anniversary of the date it was removed in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
The Centre Daily Times reports the sign was left Monday outside Beaver Stadium.
A Penn State spokesman declined comment on the condition or location of the statue. University officials have said only that it is in a "secure location."
On July 22, 2012, just before 6 a.m., workers used jackhammers to remove the statue and took it away with a forklift. The statue had become a lightning rod for public opinion amid the sex-abuse scandal.
Paterno died in January 2012.
