Tarik Cohen shares difficult thoughts on twin brother’s death
Tarik Cohen is trying to grieve following the death of his twin brother Tyrell, who died on Saturday at the age of 25.
Tyrell died over the weekend in North Carolina after being electrocuted. Officials believe he was fleeing from authorities following a car accident and tried climbing a fence at an electrical substation.
Cohen sought help on social media Saturday in locating his brother, whose body was found and identified on Sunday.
On Monday and Tuesday, the Chicago Bears running back sent tweets regarding his brother’s death. Tarik said he would take care of Tyrell’s two young daughters.
