Mike McQueary Claims He Spoke To Police, According To Report

As Mike McQueary prepares to tell America his side of the story in a nationally-televised interview, details about his specific actions upon allegedly witnessing former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky sexually-assaulting a child remain murky.

According to an email McQueary sent to friends, "The truth is not out there fully." In the email, McQueary claims that he "didn't just turn and run," as has been speculated based on alleged testimony. 

"I made sure it stopped. I did the right thing ... you guys know me," he wrote, adding that he "had to make quick, tough decisions."

In the email, McQueary also contradicts the grand jury testimony by stating that he told Penn State University police about what he saw on the night in question.

According to University Police, no such interview or meeting ever took place. Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, both of whom have been accused of perjury, have both said that they never received any news or descriptions from McQueary.
