Will the NCAA Let OSU’s Kosta Karageorge Die in Vain? - The Daily Beast

Will the NCAA Let OSU’s Kosta Karageorge Die in Vain? - The Daily Beast: "An Ohio State football player killed himself after saying he was ‘all f----- up’ from a head injury. Even the NFL has stronger rules to protect players from this.
Police found the body of Ohio State University football player Kosta Karageorge, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, inside a dumpster on Sunday, a block from his home.

Karageorge, a walk-on defensive tackle and three-year varsity wrestler, had been missing since 2 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Karageorge’s family believes the apparent suicide may be related to the concussions their son had suffered.

His mother, Susan, told NBC4i in Columbus that he “has a history of sports-related concussions” and “had a few spells of being extremely confused.” His family believes he may be disoriented from a head injury he sustained last month, according to his sister.

 Karageorge also sent his mother a text message at 1:25 a.m. Wednesday, shortly before he disappeared, in which he said, “Sorry if I am an embarrassment, but these concussions have my head all fucked up.”

 An investigation is ongoing, but Sgt. Rich Weiner told reporters: “At this time, there’s a lot of questions that we’re still trying to work out. But he was found inside of the dumpster, the handgun was found inside of the dumpster with him.”"
