Story:
Informant: Baylor Player Shot by Teammate ANGELA K. BROWN Associated Press WACO, Texas - A police informant in Delaware told authorities that missing Baylor University basketball player Patrick Dennehy was shot in the head with a 9 mm handgun by a former teammate after the two had an argument, according to court documents released Monday. The teammate and former roommate, Carlton Dotson, told a cousin that he got in an argument with Dennehy while they were shooting guns in the Waco area and that Dennehy pointed a gun at Dotson as if to shoot him, the informant said. But Dotson instead shot Dennehy in the head with the pistol, the informant said. Dotson said he then drove home to Hurlock, Md., and got rid of the guns along the way, the informant said. The search warrant affidavit released Monday was filed June 23 in 19th District Court in McLennan County by Waco police detective Bob Fuller. District Attorney John Segrest declined to comment Monday, referring questions to Waco police. Fuller did not return a phone call to The Associated Press on Monday. A message was left on an answering machine at Dotson's home in Maryland. Dennehy was reported missing by his family on June 19, and his sport utility vehicle, its license plates missing, was found last week in a mall parking lot in Virginia Beach, Va. Waco Police Chief Alberto Melis said no body had been found and no arrests had been made. Melis would not elaborate on any evidence. Melis said officers were treating the disappearance like a homicide because his department got a call "from an outside source" that said a homicide had occurred in the Waco area and the victim could be associated with a local university.

I think it's because of the way the steets of DC were laid out originally. It's like a vortex of EEEEeeee-vil.

Read the [url=http://alt.coxnewsweb.com/wacotrib/pdf/affidavit.pdf]affidavit[/url] at the [url=http://www.wacotrib.com/]Waco Tribune-Herald[/url] web site. Sad story. Dumb jerks playing with guns turns into a murder rap with the feds involved since Dotson traveled out-of-state to ditch the gun.

... The timelines seem odd to me. That affidavit was issued on June 23, 2003. ... Up through today it was reported that Patrick Dennehy was missing. ... So for a whole week his next to kin weren't notified of his death. What did I miss?

I think they were trying to flush out Dotson, giving him the impression that the police were still working it as a missing person case. The press conference this afternoon was to reveal the affidavit, so they must have Dotson in custody or at least have located him. It does seem like a whole week went by with no progress, though, if they had the affidavit last Monday. We'll see how it plays out in the next couple of days.
