Body Found in Waco

Saturday July 26, 2003 -- Posted at 7:46 p.m. CDT

WACO, Tx. -- Police in Texas say they won't know until some tests are done if a body that's been found is that of Patrick Dennehy. The body was found southeast of Waco in an area police hadn't searched before -- but near another area where they had.

McLennan County's sheriff described the body as ``badly decomposed.'' It has been taken to Dallas County for the tests and an autopsy.

Baylor University's athletic director says the entire community feels a sense of heartbreak. Dennehy disappeared in June. Dennehy's family says the suspect gave police three locations in Waco, Texas, where Dennehy' s body might be found, and a body was found in one of those -- an area of gravel pits about five miles from the university. Police have charged his former roommate and teammate Carlton Dotson with murder.

    Considering that the University of Central Arkansas mascot is a bear, it was only natural that one should be found less than a mile from campus.
