Missing Ohio State Buckeyes football player Kosta Karageorge has been found. Unfortunately, for his family, friends, and the Ohio State community, it did not have the ending that they all wanted.

Karageorge has been found dead in the University District. An individual made the call to 911 to inform police to a body near campus.

“The Ohio State University Department of Athletics was shocked and saddened to learn today of the death of student-athlete Kosta Karageorge, a senior from Columbus,” the statement from the Athletic Department said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the Karageorge family, and those who knew him, during this most difficult time.”

This appears to be a suicide, as a gun was found near his body in a dumpster. Police are also describing the shot as “self-inflicting.”

There has been a search for the former football player since Wednesday. He’s been missing since early Wednesday morning at 2 am when he walked out of his apartment.

Since the time that he was reported missing, campus police said that they were treating the investigation as a missing person case. The 6-foot-5, 285-pounder reportedly has been suffering from confusion due to previous concussions.

He also sent a text to his mother, before he disappeared, that he hoped he wasn’t an embarrassment to her.

He did not show up to practice on Wednesday, and the school,released very little information on the matter. Then, tomorrow before their game with hated rival, the Michigan Wolverines, they put his picture on the big screen urging anyone with information to contact police.

Before joining the football team this season, he competed as a wrestler for three years for the Buckeyes. His latest concussion happened a month ago, according to his sister Sophia Karageorge.
