Less than a week after the Trojans' Rose Bowl victory, the AP says Mario Danelo's body was floating at the base of a cliff:
The body was reported by a passer-by at about 4:30 p.m., said Martha Garcia of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Danelo appeared to have suffered traumatic injuries, Garcia said.
Danelo missed two field goals in his career and set extra point records following many, many USC touchdowns in 2004 and 2005. Instant reaction from Brendan Loy and Brian Cook at his Fanhouse site, who thinks along with Scott Wolf - controversially, in the latter case - signs point to suicide. "Traumatic injuries," though, isn't enough of an indication - it could be worse than suicide or just a tragic accident. There is no official indication.
