Ray Gricar, the District Attorney in Centre County, Pennsylvania, disappeared in April 2005. His county-issued laptop computer and hard drive were later found, separately, in the Susquehanna River. But Gricar has never been found. It’s a fascinating case with many twists and turns. Reporter Sara Ganim of the Harrisburg Patriot-News has put together this terrific analysis.
Was Gricar murdered? Did he commit suicide? Was he able to simply disappear? Or, perhaps, is he in the federal witness protection program? Ganim talks to the people who are in the best position to offer educated guesses, and the result is a truly compelling story.
