Joe Paterno's halo in PA mural painted over


Michael Pilato had painted a halo over Paterno's head after the beloved coach's death in January. He removed that halo on Saturday and added a blue ribbon to Paterno's jacket, symbolizing support for child abuse victims.

The changes come in the wake of an independent investigation accusing Paterno and three other Penn State officials of covering up child sex-abuse allegations against ex-assistant Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing.
