Where is Patrick Dennehy?: One of Baylor University's (where I went) basketball players has been missing for about two weeks. Recently his Chevy Tahoe was found in Virginia Beach, VA. Local authorities are saying that even Dennehy's teammates are "potential suspects".

So he's transfered to Butler but sat out last season and is (was?) expected to compete for playing time this coming season? And his teammates are suspects (potentially)? Sounds like it could be messy. Where's Jerry Springer?

I don't know where Patrick is, but here's Brian Dennehy: Are they related?

I think it's a bit weird for the police to have come out and said that players are possible suspects. Hell, I've been to Waco, and half the people in town should be suspects.

I lived there for four years (Summers exempted). Waco is an oddity. You've got on the East side of I-35 the Baylor Campus and apartments and bars for students and then the West side of I-35 holds what can be called "real" Waco. Real Waco is a very poor area with somewhere around 40% of the children living below the poverty line which means yeah, crime is pretty high. One of my most interesting experiences was to go to the courthouse in Waco to pay a fine for being caught with a can of beer at the tender age of 19. I spent about an hour and half down in the basement waiting in line to drop off my check and saw (and smelled) some very interesting characters. That said, if there were players involved it's going to be a huge black eye on the Basketball program and Baylor athletics. I wonder how the NCAA would handle such a shitty turn of events.

Game over?: Affidavit for search warrant says Dennehy (still missing) was shot by teammate Carlton Dotson after arguing while shooting guns.

Damn. I don't know what to think. This is nuts.
