Sorry, gang, but that's a shameful, shoddy, CT-leaning diary y'all have placed on the rec list today. It doesn't take much work to realize that it does not belong in a space which is supposed to represent the best of our community.

Instead, for pete's sake, read what the detective investigating Centre Co. DA Ray Gricar's disappearance has to say about Jerry Sandusky:

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.

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."

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?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
