Tyrell Cohen, the twin brother of Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen, was found dead at an electrical substation in Raleigh, N.C. on Sunday, according to authorities.

Tyrell, 25, was reported missing on Saturday night when he failed to return home. His brother had posted a tweet asking for help in finding him on Twitter, which is now deleted.

Tyrell’s body was found Sunday morning at the Duke Energy substation by an employee around 9 a.m. Sunday morning, per Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker.

It is believed Tyrell died of electrocution attempting to climb some equipment while fleeing from law enforcement. Foul play is not suspected.

Tyrell and Tarik Cohen both grew up in Bunn, N.C. where Tarik starred at Bunn High School and later NC A&T before being drafted by the Chicago Bears in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
