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.
