USS INDIANAPOLIS FOUND Tragic WWII wreckage discovered in Philippine Sea by billionaire's crew

I and millions of others first learned about the USS Indianapolis from a famous scene in the Steve Spielberg's classic film, Jaws. 
See it below.  
Fox News reports wreckage from the USS Indianapolis, which sank 72 years ago after being torpedoed during World War II, was found in the Philippine Sea by the expedition crew of billionaire Paul Allen.

The Indianapolis was hit by the Japanese on July 30, 1945 and sank in only 12 minutes, leading to the greatest single loss of life at sea in the Navy's history. Of 1,196 crew aboard the ship, only 317 survived.
