The lead detective investigating the disappearance of missing former Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar is trying to find investigative notes from the 1998 allegations made against Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach who was charged a week ago in the sexual assault of eight boys.Give it a moment's thought: who's more likely to have been involved in Gricar's mysterious disappearance/death: the 1000s of people he did prosecute and send to jail, or someone he chose not to prosecute?
Gricar was the prosecutor who decided not to pursue charges, and that has caused a media firestorm of questions about whether the strange and unsolved mystery of Gricar's April 2005 disappearance had any connection to the allegations of child sex abuse against Sandusky.
"Looking back through all of the stuff I have, years previous to his disappearance, there is nothing," Bellefonte police detective Matt Rickard said. "I’ve never even seen Sandusky’s name even written anywhere."
He even considered the possibility that Gricar might have been conducting an investigation on his own -- something that's been suggested since Gricar's laptop and hard drive were thrown into the Susquehanna River and destroyed beyond recovery.
But there was nothing to suggest that either, Rickard said.
"There's no evidence to suggest there is any connection between Sandusky’s case and Gricar’s disappearance."
