Welcome back to State College, where hubris isn't so much a trait as it is a way of life. On top of being unfortunately titled, Jerry Sandusky's autobiography, Touched, apparently helped investigators track down several of the victims who would eventually play a vital role in bringing child molestation charges against the former Penn State coach.The book's discovery in 2009, after more than a year's worth of investigating a then 17 year old boy's allegations of years of sexual abuse at the hands of Sandusky, was one in a series of breaks for police. First, they were able to track down that 1998 police report, detailing another young boy's allegations of forced showers with Sandusky. Once police tracked down the boy—he would later become "Victim 6"—his mother tipped them off to the book, "which was sitting on the shelves of the Penn State bookstore."
