Twin brother of Bears RB Tarik Cohen found dead at N.C. power station

The twin brother of Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen was found dead at a North Carolina electrical substation on Sunday. 

Police say that a Duke Energy employee found Tyrell Antar Cohen's body at a substation near Raleigh early Sunday morning. Wake County sheriff’s spokesman Eric Curry said that Cohen is believed to have been electrocuted while climbing power equipment, the News & Observer reports. He was 25 years old.

Cohen went missing early Saturday

According to Curry, Cohen fled the scene of a car accident in Raleigh around 2 a.m. on Saturday. Authorities called off their search after failing to find him. 

“He entered the substation, which may have been resulting from the accident,” Curry said, per the N&O.

Cohen's family filed a missing-person report with Raleigh police later Saturday, prompting authorities to resume their search. 

Tarik, who grew up in nearby Bunn and attended North Carolina A&T University, sought help from his Twitter followers in finding his brother in a tweet that has since been deleted. 

The Bears released a statement Sunday evening after authorities confirmed Cohen's death.
