What Really Happened to Ray Gricar?

Now that the PSU coverup document is out...

The independent report by Judge Louis Freeh into the actions of Pennsylvania State University surrounding former employee Gerald A. Sandusky has been published. The new timeline has some media mentioning how Ray Gricar was marginalized in 1998.

Now that Jerry Sandusky has been convicted of child sexual abuse charges...

While he sits in jail awaiting sentencing....

It is time to look anew at some old mysteries linked to the PSU scandal. 

Did anyone doing the Freeh Report ask the question: "What happened to Ray Gricar?"

One place to start is by asking questions about some of the mystery deaths linked to the criminal sexual activity and the coverup.

The following I shared on November 18, 2011, and, with new additions, it defines the next stage of this inquiry. We need to move forward, to continue to raise awareness on this topic. Others have explored the questions, anew.

First, begin with Dev Meyers's Pittsburgh History Examiner article entitled "Another Suicide at Penn State," of November 17, 2011. Read Sara Ganim's April 15, 2012 overview, too.
Meyers notes, in part: 
The law firm Goodall and Yurchak may soon be the next subject of investigation in the Penn State child molestation scandal. This is the firm that Judge Leslie Dutchcot belongs to. [On November 16, 2011], Judge Dutchcot was removed from the Jerry Sandusky case. Attorney Amos Goodall recently represented Ray Gricar's daughter in declaring him dead. This conveneniently happened just several months before the Penn State scandal broke. 
What has been kept as quiet as a mouse is the suicide of Amos Goodall's son Christian Amos Goodall.... He was 29 years old.
At 29, Christian Goodall would have been the perfect age to have known the Second Mile boys, and to have been familiar with many of the details in the scandal.

Ray Frank Gricar (born October 9, 1945, missing April 15, 2005, 
declared dead in absentia, July 25, 2011).
What happened to Ray Gricar (above) ~ murder, suicide, or a not-so-simple disappearance? And why? District Attorney Ray Gricar, 59, went missing on April 15, 2005, when he vanished under mysterious circumstances, after his car was left in a Lewisburg parking lot, not far from the Susquehanna River, and he could not be found. Did he kill himself, as his brother Roy seems to have, by drowning, in May 1996?

Cigarette ash and the smell of cigarette was found in Ray Gricar's red and white 2004 Mini Cooper, although he did not smoke and did not let anyone in his car who smoked. Who was in his car before he disappeared? Was he pressured to not charge Jerry Sandusky with sexual molestation when Gricar investigated the 1998 incidents? Could Gricar not live with himself about this? Or worse?

Matt Sandusky, Jerry Sandusky's youngest adopted son, attempted suicide, according to a media interview of Matt's biological mother, Debra Long. (During the end of the week of the Sandusky trial, Matt came forth and said he too had been abused by his adoptive father, Jerry Sandusky.)

As to twilight language, some bloggers are noting the irony in the title of Jerry Sandusky's autobiography, Touched.

Scroll through this investigation to the very top of the food chain. Paterno is not the top. Spanier is not the top. Our Governor of Pa is the top. Ask Tom Corbett what he knows about Gricar's disappearance.
