A missing Ohio State football player has been found dead in a trash dumpster of a self inflicted gunshot wound.
Kosta Karageorge disappeared after sending his parents a series of text message claiming to be suffering from concussions.
A woman and her son looking for items in a dumpster found the body around 2:30 p.m. Sunday and contacted the authorities. “At this time we are able to confirm through tattoos here at the scene that it is the body of Kosta Karageorge,” said police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner. Weiner said a preliminary investigation showed that Karageorge apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. A handgun was found in the dumpster, he said. h/t abcnews
Karageorge went missing Wednesday, and police found his body within a couple hundred yards of his home and about a half block from High Street, the main artery of the campus. Karageorge had last been seen at his apartment in Columbus, when his roommates said he left to go on a walk.
