Ray Gricar and the Penn State Tragedy: Did Someone in Power Pressure Gricar to Ignore the Incriminating Results of the “Police Sting” of Jerry Sandusky?

People in power routinely stay in power through intimidation, bribery, threats, and other malignant methods.

In one of the most alarming pieces of evidence in the allegations of sexual abuse against Jerry Sandusky, we are learning a boy stepped forward, Victim 6, and accused Sandusky of taking a shower with him nude with another boy.

Police interviewed the boys, then created a sting when Sandusky asked to meet with the boy’s mother.

Regarding the results of the sting, Sara Ganim in a Patriot-News Special Report published

Friday, November 11, 2011, strongly suggests Detective Ron Schreffler, the lead investigator in the case believed Sandusky incriminated himself.
Sandusky is apparently quoted telling the biological mother of the child:

“I understand. I was wrong. I wish I could get forgiveness from you. I know I won’t get it from you. I wish I were dead.”

Ms. Ganim’s article also claims that Ray Gricar, the District Attorney in the case, knew the incriminating results of the police sting, before he made the decision not to prosecute this first complaint in 1998.

Ray Gricar turned up missing in 2005 and is presumed dead.

This case will ultimately involve millions of dollars in liability settlements, and untold damage to the reputation of Penn State, Paterno, and the other principals in the case.

As a result, the various attorneys will seek to uncover every kernel of truth possible, both to prosecute and defend the case.

We will definitely learn more, but already we know this tragedy was exacerbated by the failure of powerful people to keep Sandusky’s predator tendencies from being known to the public.
