The body of missing Ohio State defensive lineman Kosta Karageorge was found by Columbus police on Sunday after a search that started after he went missing on Wednesday.
Karageorge, 22, was found dead in a dumpster of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was identified by tattoos at the scene, and a police spokesman said the investigation would continue with both the dumpster and the body of Karageorge being transported to the county morgue.
“At this time, there’s a lot of questions that we’re still trying to work out,” Sgt. Rich Weiner told reporters at the scene. “But he was found inside of the dumpster, the handgun was found inside of the dumpster with him.
“At this time we are able to confirm through tattoos here at the scene that it is the body of Kosta Karageorge.”
