Their names are unknown and their faces have not been seen, but the alleged victims in the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal were front and center for thousands Friday night.

Students, parents, community members, and visitors held candles during a vigil Friday night. As each candle burned, an alleged victim was honored.

"It's an opportunity for our students to give back and show support for the children who have been abused because in the end that's all that really matter," Elias Warren, Penn State Sophomore from Lancaster County.

The vigil was organized by a Penn State Blue Band member. Students told Fox 43 they didn't want the week to end without honoring the alleged victims.
