State police grab case of missing central Pa. DA Gricar
BELLEFONTE — The Pennsylvania State Police are taking over the search for a missing central Pennsylvania prosecutor who declined to prosecute former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
Former Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar hasn't been seen since leaving work in 2005, seven years after he decided against charging Sandusky after a boy's mother complained to State College police about abuse.
Current District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller formed a task force in 2010 to investigate Gricar's disappearance, but state police from Hollidaysburg are taking over at the request of Bellefonte police.
Bellefonte Chief Shawn Weaver says state police have more resources to devote to the investigation and hopes having another agency take a fresh look at the case might generate some leads.
