He was wearing clothes, including an N95 mask covering his face and blue gloves over his hands, that police say were later found in Gross’s Connellsville home.
The next day, police said the victim came forward with information on a possible suspect. She told investigators she had had a conversation with Gross a few days before that “made her uncomfortable.”
