leave a comment »

Kansas City Chief player, Jovan Belcher, committed suicide Saturday, after killing his 22-year-old girlfriend, Kasandra M. Perkins.

It was reported that Belcher and his girlfriend had been arguing frequently. Belcher’s mother called the police early Saturday morning, telling authorities that her daughter (Perkins) had been shot multiple times.

Belcher reportedly thanked his coaches for the opportunity to play before walking off from them and pulling the trigger and killing himself.

Belcher and Perkins leave behind a 3-month-old daughter who is now being cared for by family members.

The Chiefs issued a statement that said their game Sunday afternoon against the Carolina Panthers would go on as scheduled, even as the franchise tried to come to grips with the awfulness of Belcher’s death.
