Dateline: Secrets Uncovered: The Case of the Missing D.A. (Oxygen Wednesday January 31, 2024)




In a forthcoming episode of Oxygen’s “Dateline: Secrets Uncovered,” the mysterious disappearance of Ray Gricar, a Pennsylvania district attorney in 2005, takes center stage. The episode, titled “The Case of the Missing D.A.”, is set to air on Wednesday January 31, 2024 at 8:00 PM and will be reported by Lester Holt.

Ray Gricar first gained attention for his involvement in investigating sex-abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach. However, several years after this high-profile case shook the Penn State community and long before it became widely known as one of college sports’ most shocking scandals, Gricar vanished under perplexing circumstances.

Gricar’s disappearance remains an enigma due to the absence of clear explanations or evidence regarding what happened to him. Although there are no certainties surrounding his fate, some speculate that there could be a connection between Gricar’s investigation into Sandusky and his subsequent vanishing act.

On April 15th, 2005—the day he disappeared—Gricar informed his girlfriend Patty Fornicola that he intended to play hooky for the day. He took his red sporty car out for a drive along country roads near their residence before contacting Patty again later to inform her that he wouldn’t be able to return home. This phone call would mark their last conversation ever held.


Subsequently, investigators made key discoveries related to Gricar’s case which added further intrigue. Two fishermen found Gricar’s work laptop submerged in a river; however, its hard drive was conspicuously absent from the device when recovered—an unsettling detail raising questions about potential motives behind tampering with evidence.

The episode delves into three theories advanced by investigators surrounding Gricer’s sudden vanishing:
1) That he voluntarily left without trace and adopted an entirely new identity.
2) That his disappearance resulted from a tragic suicide.
3) That he was the victim of foul play, potentially targeting him specifically.

To unravel this captivating mystery, “Dateline: Secrets Uncovered” includes interviews with investigators involved in Gricar’s case, as well as close friends and family members who share their perspectives. Additionally, experts lend insights into the various leads pursued by authorities throughout their investigation. These include reported sightings of Gricar with an unidentified dark-haired woman at a street of shops in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania—an avenue explored but yet to yield definitive answers regarding his whereabouts.

As is often the case with unresolved mysteries such as Gricar’s vanishing act over a decade ago, no concrete conclusion has been reached to date. This episode presents viewers an opportunity to delve into the perplexing circumstances surrounding Ray Gricar’s disappearance and form their own interpretations based on evidence brought forth within the show.


Make sure to tune in to Oxygen on Wednesday January 31st at 8:00 PM for this thought-provoking episode of “Dateline: Secrets Uncovered.”
