Law enforcement officials found the body of 18-year-old Arizona resident Johnathan Croom near his abandoned SUV in the woods of southwestern Oregon, Dwes Hutson, spokesman for the Douglas County Sheriff's Department, said Tuesday. A search team equipped with cadaver dogs found Croom's body just after 6 p.m. Monday. He had apparently hung himself, Hutson said, adding that the condition of the body led authorities to believe Croom committed suicide around Aug. 18. Hutson also said that text messages sent to a friend on Aug. 18 indicated Croom was contemplating suicide.

There is etiquette to winning and losing, and Washington State Coach Mike Leach clearly violated it Saturday night in Eugene. Or at least Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti thought so. Aliotti blasted Leach in a post-game rant after Oregon's 62-38 victory. Oregon, leading 62-24 in the fourth quarter, cleared the bench to give the reserves some playing time. Leach, however, left his starting offense on the field and scored two late touchdown passes, the last with 11 seconds remaining.

University of Oregon junior Alex Rovello drowned Saturday after failing to surface following a 60-foot dive into Tamolitch Falls in Willamette National Forest in western Oregon. Friends and bystanders tried to rescue the tennis player when he failed to surface after diving from a cliff into the Blue Pool at the base of the falls, but they were hampered by the deep, 37-degree water, the Linn County Sherriff's Department said. "The Oregon tennis family is devastated by the loss of Alex," Oregon men's tennis Coach Nils Schyllander said . "He was an amazing person and teammate and his spirit will live on forever with all of us who were fortunate enough to have known him. " The popular swimming hole, located about two miles north of a campground, is so remote that one witness needed to run two miles before getting cell service to call 911, KTVB.com reported . Rovello's body was recovered by dive teams and deputies more than 30 feet from the water's surface.
