Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen and his family are facing yet another unbelievable tragedy on this Mother’s Day holiday.

According to multiple media reports, Cohen’s twin brother was found dead at a Duke Energy substation in North Carolina Sunday morning.

“Police identified Tyrell Antar Cohen, 25, after he was reported missing and later found dead at the Duke Energy substation,” a local ABC News affiliate in North Carolina reported. “Deputies with the Wake County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Duke Energy substation around 9 a.m. after an employee found Cohen’s body inside the perimeter.”

Local authorities are working under the belief that Cohen died of electrocution as he attempted to climb equipment while fleeing law enforcement.

“We believe at this point, it is connected to a missing person case being investigated by the Raleigh Police Department,” Sheriff Baker told WTVD in North Carolina.
