6:36 am
sex abuse claims involving university employees. penn state would be responsible. we spoke to a legal expert who says the timing of the investigation to penn state's insurance policy raises questions. >> what's interesting and what the court notes is that, in 1999 forward, this exclusion didn't exist within these policies for penn state. it also coincides with mr. sandusky leaving the employ of penn state university. >> sandusky retired in 1999. i reached out to the insurance company covering penn state. they did not want to comment. if this lawsuit proceeds to trial, we may learn more about whether that kind of insurance exemption for sex abuse claims is common and why in this case it ended right after sandusky retired. all right. now to the south jersey bureau. today marks day five in the search for an inmate who escaped from a minimum security prison. he is still on the loose. officials no longer believe that arthur buckle is in the varn gut
