Introduction November 5, 2011. Jerry Sandusky, a former PSU assistant football coach, is arrested on child molestation charges stemming from an investigation spearheaded by Governor Tom Corbett and Attorney General, Linda Kelly. As the Sandusky Sex Scandal rocks the Penn State Community and everyone watches their beloved Joe Paterno, head football coach and Graham Spanier, Penn State University President fired from their jobs, in Philadelphia, Greg Bucceroni hears the news and begins to relive the past he has kept buried for 35 years. His decision to tell his story to the world begins and continues to this very day.
This paper will show how the dots connect from one to another in defining the Philadelphia Pedophile Ring that has been in existence since the 1970s and 1980s to Louis B. Freeh, independent reviewer and accuser of Penn State University and Joe Paterno. Does the pedophile ring exist today? If so, an investigation needs to happen so these children are protected from the heinous crimes like Jerry Sandusky placed on his victims and these monsters are removed from society.
Named by Greg are Ed Savitz and Sam Rappaport and pedophile enabler Ed Rendell along with the members of the Gambino Crime family who were instrumental in supplying the pedophiles with pictures of the victims to Louis B. Freeh who was a mid level FBI agent investigating the Gambino Crime Family and spear headed the Innocent Images National Initiative for child pornography which resided in Baltimore, Maryland during his FBI Directorship.
Greg Bucceroni says he doesn’t remember the specific location he was driven to in 1979, when he says he was a troubled teenager who had been in and out of at least one Philadelphia after-school youth service program.
Bucceroni says he accompanied Edward Savitz, a well-known Philadelphia businessman, Democratic political booster and advocate for at-risk children, to a fund-raiser “somewhere past Harrisburg.”
The event was to raise money for the recently established Second Mile foundation, and Bucceroni says he remembers meeting the man everyone referred to as “The Coach,” Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who founded Second Mile in 1977. Bucceroni says Savitz and Sandusky knew each other through The Second Mile and political fund-raising events. There are a number of dissertations regarding the entire fiasco from Spanier in Nebraska and his PhD dissertation on wife swapping, Ed Savitz and Greg Bucceroni involvement.
Overview “I remember thinking that the Second Mile is going to save me. I have a chance to get out of trouble,” Greg Bucceroni, a troubled teenager in 1979, remembers being driven to a fundraiser in central PA, the first time he met Jerry Sandusky.

However, Bucceroni was NOT a victim of Jerry Sandusky - but rather a victim of another serial pedophile living in Philadelphia - Edward Savitz
The Philadelphia native, who now works as a police officer in the city’s public school system, says he was sexually abused by Edward Savitz starting in 1977. Like Sandusky, Savitz met and groomed many of his alleged victims through his work with at-risk youths. More details below the fold - however, please note that all links to articles on Savitz are HIGHLY triggering and the details are EXTREMELY disturbing.
Edward Savitz was an intelligent young man, voted most likely to succeed in his high school and won the only college scholarship [a full ride] to the University of Pennsylvania. A successful business man, he was quoted in Money Magazine on the wisdom of converting corporate retirement plan proceeds into annuities.
Many were surprised at how "normal" Savitz was. In business, he was an expert in his field, Vice President of his brother's company; he was highly successful and well-respected in the community. He owned a house valued at $750 thousand dollars as well as a fancy apartment in the Rittenhouse Square. That was the pin-striped side of Edward I. Savitz, 50, then a principal with Retirement & Employee Benefit Consulting Associates, a division of the now-bankrupt Laventhol & Horwath accounting firm.
Friday, the Philadelphia district attorney went public with the seamier side of Savitz, the one they called "Uncle Ed" or "Fast Eddie," the one arrested two days earlier and accused of having sexual relations with hundreds of young men and boys - despite having had AIDS for the last year.
