Featured Audio

Columbus Police say Kosta Karageorge, the 22-year-old defensive lineman for the Ohio State Buckeyes, was found inside a dumpster near campus Sunday afternoon.

According to Sergeant Rich Weiner, Karageorge died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“He was found inside of the dumpster," Weiner told media Sunday night. "The handgun was found inside of the dumpster with him. We’ll be moving that container and him to the county morgue where the investigators will continue the investigation.”

Karageorge went missing early Wednesday morning, just days before a rivalry game against the University of Michigan. His disappearance was referenced during that game’s national broadcast and sparked a large community search.
