Disappearance tip unfounded

BELLEFONTE (AP) — A Pennsylvania police chief said the latest reported tip about the whereabouts of a missing prosecutor connected to former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse case has turned out to be un- founded.

Bellefonte police Chief Shawn Weaver said the FBI took an inmate to a location where he claimed Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar was buried and nothing was found.

Gricar disappeared in 2005, seven years after he decided against charging Sandusky after a boy’s mother complained to State College police about abuse.

Weaver said the inmate claimed that Gricar was in debt to a Hells Angels group and that one of its members — a man Gricar prosecuted for beating a man with a baseball bat — also killed Gricar.
