Tyrone twist in Gricar case

The owner of a Tyrone antique shop told The Daily Herald yesterday he had seen the former Centre County District Attorney with an unidentified woman at his shop several weeks before Ray Gricar went missing.
Tom Marshall, owner of I-99 Antiques on Pennsylvania Avenue, said he and his wife live in State College. He said he knew Gricar and saw him and spoke to him at the store weeks before his disappearance.
He said Gricar was with an unidentified woman. Marshall said the woman was not Gricar’s daughter or girlfriend, Patty Fornicola. He said Gricar drove away from the shop in the same car he was using when he went missing in mid-April of last year.
Marshall said he was contacted by Bellefonte police sometime after Gricar’s disappearance and gave authorities details about the encounter. Marshall said the woman he saw Gricar with in Tyrone matched the description of a woman he was reportedly seen with in Lewisburg the day the former prosecutor went missing.
WJAC Channel 6 News first reported the story earlier this week. The report said Fornicola had told Bellefonte police she was the woman with Gricar in Tyrone.
Bellefonte Police Chief Shawn Weaver did not return a call by press time this morning.
