The horrifying allegations against Jerry Sandusky seem to have no end: Now a witness says he saw the former Penn State coach and a prominent booster from the school sexually abusing two boys on a private plane. The witness has spoken to the US Postal Inspectors and the FBI as part of an investigation into whether Sandusky shared child porn through the mail.

The witness, who is closely tied to the booster in question, "doesn't know if the boys are victims who have already been identified or not," a source tells Radar. "He claims it happened on a private plane, with no pilot or crew around." Despite the fact that he has "some baggage," authorities are taking the witness seriously and following up with other possible witnesses, the source adds. There are, of course, questions as to why the witness didn't report the alleged abuse at the time. (More Penn State sex abuse stories.)
