Halo removed from mural at Penn State

Halo removed from mural at Penn State

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Joe Paterno's halo over Happy Valley is no more.

Artists have painted over the halo above Joe Paterno on a famous mural at Penn State.

Painter Michael Pilato said he removed the halo in the wake of the Freeh report.

The halo had been originally added to the popular mural after Paterno's death earlier this year.

However, a blue ribbon symbolizing support for child abuse victims remains on Paterno's jacket.
