A body found buried in a shallow grave on the Far Rockaway beach area of New York Monday morning is not former NBA player Quinton Ross, as originally reported by the New York Post.
Initial reports that the victim was the former Nets basketball player are incorrect, police said. The victim, also named Quinton Ross, was stuffed into a trash bag that was hidden in a patch of weeds midway between the water and the boardwalk.
The basketball player Ross, a 6-foot-6 Dallas native who played at Southern Methodist University, played seven seasons in the NBA, his most recent coming with the then-New Jersey Nets in 2010-11.
Umm, the Quinton Ross I grew up with is at home with his family in North Texas. Thank God. Prayers go out to the other Quinton Ross' family— tovash hatcher (@tovash10) March 24, 2014
