    Cops said the disposal of his body raised suspicions of foul play,

    I don't know. Sounds like irresponsible speculation there.

    The mental picture of stuffing a dead body into a trash bag ...

    * did they spin the bag closed then twisty-lock it?

    * was it a Hefty™ bag?

    * were those who stuffed him in the bag thinking "We're putting this guy ... IN A TRASH BAG!" and feel kind of weird about that?

    * were there other options at the scene? sleeping bag? rug? bubble wrap?

    * how large was the bag? 5-gallon? 10-gallon?

    * did they double-bag him?

    You live your whole life only to be stuffed into a garbage bag.

    Where he was found, though, I think it's considered natural causes.

    “Why did they bury him? What could he have done? Those bastards!” she wailed.

    Watching South Park?

    His grisly death mirrors the teams he played for, by and large:

    Los Angeles Clippers: 147-181 (37-45, 47-37, 40-42, 23-59)

    Memphis Grizzlies: 24-58

    2 teams in '09-'10: Dallas Mavs (27G on 55-21 team), Washington Wizards (25G on 26-56 team)

    New Jersey Nets: 24-58

    The teams he played on won 42% of the time (276-380).

    NYP now states victim was NOT Nets' Quinton Ross but a name-alike.

    Maybe the Nets' Quinton Ross is the killer.

    Now that's an L&O plot twist!

    Editors aren't necessary because no one cares if the facts are wrong.
