Sign left at former site of Joe Paterno statue

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - July 22, 2013

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.
