Ohio State player dead of self-inflicted gunshot

The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Police say a missing Ohio State football player who disappeared shortly after sending a text message about his concussions was found dead Sunday in a dumpster, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner says a woman and her son apparently looking for items in the dumpster found the body, and police were called.

He says a handgun was found in the dumpster.

Police found the body near the campus after a search began when Karageorge went missing Wednesday. The senior defensive tackle had last been seen at his Columbus apartment, when his roommates said he left to go on a walk.

University athletic officials say they are grieved to learn of Karageorge's death. A person who answered the parent's phone said no one wanted to comment.


Cornwell reported from Cincinnati.
