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

The services for Kosta Karageorge will be held Wednesday at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Columbus with a private burial in Athens County.

Football teammates have remembered Karageorge, a walk-on player, as hard-working and enthusiastic.

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

After days of searching, the body of a missing Ohio State University football player has been found. 

Columbus Police say Kosta Karageorge, the 22-year-old defensive lineman for the Ohio State Buckeyes, was found inside a dumpster near campus the afternoon of Nov. 30.

Sergeant Rich Weiner says Karageorge died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

As the controversy over the firing of Ohio State University's marching band director continues, records indicate the university knew about hazing and questionable initiations as far back as 32 years, and a former music school official told former staff members to put an end to it.

Ohio State University is joining with ten other public research universities across the country to find way to boost their graduation rates in an effort aimed especially at lower income students.

Sinclair Community College in Dayton has announced a partnership with Ohio State University on its unmanned aerial system (UAS) or drone program.

Sinclair recently got news of a $4 million grant from the state to improve its facilities for teaching about drones. Now Sinclair will team up with Ohio State to offer people who get UAS certificates or associate’s degrees options to complete a degree at OSU in data analytics or geospatial precision agriculture; OSU students will be able to take classes at Sinclair to earn a certificate or degree.

A group critical of JobsOhio says the California native brought in to be its first president may have used that position to set himself up for a big payday later.

The liberal group Progress Ohio has been trying to find out about the deals Mark Kvamme has been striking with his firm Drive Capital since leaving JobsOhio. Progress Ohio’s Brian Rothenberg says based on a similar proposed deal with one of the state’s pension funds, Kvamme could net $9 million in fees, half a million in expenses and 20% of future profits from The Ohio State University’s investment in his company.

The interim president of Ohio State University says he has work to do to push the OSU brand across the country internationally, but he says he doesn’t feel damage control is part of that. Joe Alutto is taking over for Gordon Gee, who retired earlier this summer after a controversy over a series of headline-making verbal gaffes. Alutto says he doesn’t think he has to repair any burned bridges as he moves into Gee’s office.
