A Tragic Loss Of Life.......

From the Globe, and the entire article is here when you click on the title. So so sad......

"Officials in New Orleans found a body in the area where New England Patriot Marquise Hill and a young woman fell while jet skiing yesterday on Lake Pontchartrain, but have not confirmed that the body is Hill's.
"State authorities found a body in the vicinity that the Coast Guard has been searching," said Petty Officer Third Class Tom Atkeson of the US Coast Guard." We still have yet to determine if that is the body of Mr. Hill."
However, Capt. Brian Clark of the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Department told the Associated Press, "The family will have to make positive identification ... but the body we found was that of Mr. Marquise Hill."
The body was found at about 2:26 p.m. today by crews who have been searching for Hill since he was reported missing yesterday evening. Hill, a 24-year-old defensive end and native of New Orleans, was operating jet skis with a young woman on Lake Pontchartrain when they fell into a strong current, said Albert Elias, Hill's agent."

Peter here, and rest in peace Marquise....we hardly knew ye.
