Penn State Scandal: Ray Gricar Disappearance Not Connected To Sandusky According To Police (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- The man investigating the 2005 disappearance of a central Pennsylvania prosecutor doesn't believe it is linked to the prosecutor's 1998 decision to not file child-sex charges against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Still, Bellefonte police Det. Matthew Rickard tells The Associated Press he'll review how Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar (GREE'-kar) handled the 1998 allegations – just to be thorough.

With the case back in the spotlight because of the Penn State child sex-abuse scandal, Rickard says he knows of nothing linking Gricar's April 2005 disappearance to the prosecutor's earlier investigation of Sandusky. Sandusky is charged by state prosecutors with molesting the alleged 1998 victim and seven other boys.

Earlier this year, a judge declared Gricar dead, at the request of Gricar's daughter.
