Maybe It Was Premature to Tie Karageorge’s Suicide to Concussions

A story in the Columbus Dispatch earlier this week provided some additional insight into Kosta Karageorge, the Ohio State football player who committed suicide two months ago.

It was reported that Karageorge sent suicidal text messages to his ex-girlfriend, whom he had just broken up with. The texts came around the time he was reported missing in late November. The paper reported that Karageorge suggested they talk, but that she asked him to stop texting her.

Karageorge reportedly replied: “I am gonna kill myself.” Then he told her she shouldn’t attend the funeral.


It was widely reported in the aftermath of his death that he had texted his mother, writing that concussions were affecting his mind and that he hoped he wasn’t an embarrassment.
