Chicago Bears’ Tarik Cohen’s missing twin, 25, dead after being electrocuted at Duke Energy substation in North Carolina


CHICAGO Bears star Tarik Cohen's missing twin brother was found dead at an electrical substation on Sunday.

Tyrell Antar Cohen, 25, was found dead at the Duke Energy substation after being reported missing on Saturday night.

Police said Tyrell died after being electrocuted while attempting to climb the equipment while fleeing from law enforcement.

Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker said the North Carolina State Highway Patrol tried to do a traffic stop on Tyrell before he went missing.

"We believe at this point, it is connected to a missing person case being investigated by the Raleigh Police Department," Baker told ABC11.

Tarik, a running back for the Chicago Bears, talked about the search for his twin brother on social media. Foul play was not suspected.
