The couple argued early Saturday morning after Perkins attended a Trey Songz concert and had drinks with friends, while Belcher reportedly “partied” in Kansas City’s Power & Light District. Belcher was angry that Perkins had been out so late and ended up sleeping in his own car. Police woke Belcher up at 7 a.m. and considered him fit to drive himself home. Upon his arrival, Belcher and Perkins argued again, with Belcher’s mother hearing her son say something along the lines of “You can’t talk to me like that” before pulling the trigger.
Seconds after fatally shooting his longtime girlfriend, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher leaned over her in their master bathroom, said he was sorry and kissed her on the forehead.
His mother, who heard gunfire as she stood in the kitchen, rushed to her son’s bedroom and watched his remorseful goodbye.
Belcher apologized to his mother, kissed his 3-month-old daughter and fled his rented home in the 5400 block of Crysler Avenue in his Bentley.
Pioli and Crennel attempted to dissuade Belcher from committing suicide, but as police closed in, Belcher reportedly said “I got to go...I can’t be here” before kneeling down behind a vehicle, making the sign of the cross and firing a single bullet into his head.
sounds like he was beginning to turn his life around
