    Marquise Hill's body found:
    --------------------------
    Body of Pats' Hill found
    Ex-LSU star, 24, drowned in lake after jet ski accident

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The body of New England Patriots player Marquise Hill was found Monday, a state official said, a day after he was reported missing following a jet ski accident on Lake Pontchartrain.

    Hill's body was discovered by searchers about a quarter of a mile from where the former LSU star and a female companion were involved in the accident, Capt. Brian Clark of the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Department said.

    "The family will have to make positive identification," Clark said, "but the body we found was that of Mr. Marquise Hill."

    The Coast Guard was called Sunday night, Petty Officer Tom Atkeson said. The search began immediately, using boats and helicopters.

    By the time the body was found, the Coast Guard, Wildlife and Fisheries, the New Orleans Police Department and Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Department were involved, Clark said.

    Hill's body was taken to the Orleans Parish Coroner's office, but phone messages left there and on coroner Frank Minyard's cell phone were not immediately returned.

    Report: Vick was at dog fight in 2000

    NEW YORK (AP) --Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was at a dog fight in 2000 and is "one of the heavyweights" in the sport, ESPN reported.

    The network Sunday cited a police informant whom a dog-fighting investigator called "extremely reliable."

    "That's who bets a large dollar," the informant said on the show Outside the Lines. "And they have the money to bet large money. As I'm talking about large money, $30,000-$40,000, even higher. He's one of the heavyweights."

    When asked how he knows the former Virginia Tech star bets that amount, the informant said, "because I've seen it."

    The informant said his dog beat Vick's dog in 2000, the year before Vick was chosen by the Falcons with the first overall pick in the NFL draft.
