Jewell Laments 'Scar'

ATLANTA () -- Cleared Saturday of suspicion as an Olympic terrorist, Richard Jewell went from hero to suspect to an example of how high-profile investigations can make an innocent man infamous.


"There will be a non-healing scar that is always affixed to my name," Jewell told The New York Times in an interview published Monday. "I don't know if that will ever be cleared up."


The security guard's life turned upside down when his name was leaked as a suspect in the July 27 bomb blast at Centennial Olympic Park that killed one person and injured more than 100.
