    Since the body didn't appear like others in the past on that river, the police aren't convinced that it's evident.


    Zaccagni thought it possible that Gricar, who wasn’t a strong swimmer, had jumped from this nearby bridge.
    James: When did you lose your confidence in that particular theory?
    Zaccagni: Well, I think we started to lose it when we didn’t find the body right away. The river has a history of turning up the bodies relatively soon.
    I may be wrong.

    Crigar didn't find enough evidence, I understand, to proceed with an investigation. Quite a mystery, and maybe this mysterious tangent will end up providing closure to Crigar's daughter/executrix. But I still think it's probably a tangent. I hope it is.

    If I were Paterno, I'd start gifting as much of my estate to my kids/grandkids/friends and relatives as possible before any of Sandusky's vicitms sued me. because given the sentiment shown here, a jury would make him pay because he should've done more.

    Joe Paterno and the original asst coach that reported it to them are quite the culpable enablers...the asst coach did the right thing reporting it to Paterno HIS BOSS...paterno did the right thing reporting it to his boss...but paterno first ACTION should have been to tell the coach to go immediately to the police and report the incident...he did not do that.
    Its becoming quite obvious that everyone surrounding sandusky has a fear of this man or WHO he associates with...if it turns out theres a pedophile ring of powerful men who were allowed to continue their criminal sexual abuse...EVERYONE even near this issue needs to do BIG TIME for it...this is disgusting

    Read this article..as redress said...I HOPE IT IS NOT TRUE....could you even imagine another nambla but worse

    What's that old saying? That all it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing?

    true, Sandusky needs to be subjected to the same treatment he gave those boys.

    except in this case they did not "do nothing", they just, according to popular sentiment, didn't do enough.

    What I mean is that they seem to have satisfied themselves that all they were required to do was remain in contractual compliance.

    which, had the DA done his job would have been more than "enough". If you want to blame someone, blame DA Crigar. oh wait, we can't because he is missing.

    what you are missing is that even had they gone to the cops...the cops would've gone to the DA...the same guy who didn't do anything. and the result would've been the same.

    cops don't decide who to prosecute and who not to, the DA does. unless they witness the crime in progress, the cops don't get to decide who to arrest and who not to. it doesn't matter what the cops think, if the DA doesn't want to prosecute the case there is nothing the cops can do.


    so all this crying about "they should've gone to the cops" is, from a practical standpoint, irrelevent. since the result would've been the same.
