Tyrell Cohen, twin brother of Bears' Tarik Cohen, found dead originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Tyrell Cohen, the twin brother of Bears running back Tarik Cohen, was found dead Sunday morning in a North Carolina power substation.
According to the Wake County Sheriff's Office, it is believed Tyrell Cohen died of electrocution while climbing some of the equipment.
The discovery occurred around the time Tarik Cohen posted several messages on social media asking for help finding his brother, who had gone missing Saturday in Raleigh. In those messages, which have since been deleted, he said his brother was "possibly injured."
Multiple reports out of Raleigh said Tyrell Cohen was "fleeing from law enforcement" when he entered the Duke Energy substation.
Sadly, this is the second tragedy in the Cohen family in recent years. In 2019, Tarik's half-brother, Dante Norman, was shot and paralyzed from the waist down.
Cohen is from Bunn, North Carolina, just outside the Raleigh area, and played college football at North Carolina A&T.
