He got thrown under the bus. He told his boss who was boss of the campus police about the abuse(unclear hearsay at the time) immediately. The Police were told (the DA of centre county) who is the very top cop. He mysteriously disappears , his work PC is found in a river, with the hard drive wiped clean. The DA's brother is found dead at the exact same time.They ruled it a suicide, but no note was found and he was the father of children and happily married with a great job. All of the DA's records are confirmed missing to any reports.
