Ohio State Players Say No Warning Signs Preceeded Teammate’s Death
The football team is baffled by the disappearance and apparent suicide of Ohio State football player Kosta Karageorge, who was found dead inside a dumpster Sunday.
Friends described him as 'positive, goofy and lighthearted.'
A neuropathologist will look for signs of traumatic brain injury in the Ohio State athlete, who had a reported history of concussions.
The Franklin County, Ohio, coroner said preliminary results from Monday's autopsy confirmed that Karageorge died of a gunshot wound, but she hasn't yet definitively ruled it a suicide.
His mother told police her son had had several concussions and a few spells of being extremely confused, and players knew of Karageorge's history of concussions.
