Ronald Shreffler, a detective in the police department at Penn State, was first informed of the 1998 Jerry Sandusky shower incident on the morning of May 4, 1998, one day after it happened. Within 30 minutes, he had interviewed the boy now known to the world as Victim 6. And later that afternoon, Shreffler contacted a caseworker at the Centre County (Pa.) Children and Youth Services. But because CYS had several contracts with Sandusky's charity, The Second Mile, the case was handed to the state Department of Public Welfare (DPW) on May 5.
Around the same time, according to Page 43 of the Freeh Report, Shreffler also touched base with a prosecutor at the county district attorney's office. But he hadn't yet contacted anyone else at Penn State. Care to know why?
