So apparently my account at MtGox was one of the one compromised and they apparently had already stolen (i.e. sent themselves a payment) the rest of my Bitcoins off of mybitcoin.com.
I only had 0.7642 left there anyway... but how would I find out where it went?

Um.. You aren't going to be able to track them down.  That's the beauty and the folly of bitcoins.  You can watch them get spent with block explorer, but you aren't going to be able to track the person down unless mybitcoin tells you the IP address of the person to make the withdrawal.

Talk to MyBitcoin and law enforcement about the IP addresses involved.

And maybe suggest that MyBitcoin implement IP whitelisting, like any other sane financial website.

Jeffpod, your password was at least salted in the database.  I'll go out on a limb here and say your password was a dictionary word or under 8 characters.  I could throw my GPUs at it for a few hours and tell you what it was if this is the case.

Just be glad you only lost a fraction of a BTC.  The fact that you reused a password shows you aren't taking your security too seriously.
