Funeral set for Ohio State athlete found dead of apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound

Funeral services have been announced for an Ohio State athlete found dead in a trash bin of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The services for Kosta Karageorge (KOH'-stah KAHR'-ah-jorj) will be held Wednesday at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Columbus with a private burial in Athens County.

Football teammates are remembering Karageorge, a walk-on player, as hard-working and enthusiastic.

After Karageorge went missing, his mother, Susan, told police her son had had several concussions and a few spells of being extremely confused.

A woman looking for scrap metal found the body of the 22-year-old Karageorge on Sunday near his apartment in Columbus.

The Franklin County coroner says a special examination will look for signs of traumatic brain injury related to a history of concussions.
