More sad details are emerging in the apparent suicide of the missing Ohio State University football player found dead yesterday. NBC4i and ABC News report that Kosta Karageorge's body and a gun were found in a dumpster just a few hundred yards from his apartment. "Reports were that a female and her son were in the area. They were going through the dumpsters looking for items when they across a male," says a rep for the Columbus Police Department. Karageorge was identified via tattoos. It's unclear both how long he was in the dumpster and how he got the gun. "At this time, there are a lot of questions that we're still trying to work out," says the rep. (More concussions stories.)
