Police say an 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 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 but they’re not sure if it belonged to Karageorge. He did say they identified him by his tattoos.

Police found the body near the campus after a search began when Kosta 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.

The Buckeyes defeated Michigan on Saturday, 42-28. Defensive lineman Michael Bennett said afterward that Karageorge missed practices and that teammates started getting nervous Thursday.
