KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher told officers who found him sleeping in his car outside an apartment complex hours before he committed a murder-suicide that he was there to visit a woman he described as his ''girlfriend,'' but that she wasn't home.
The apartment complex is about 10 miles from the Kansas City home Belcher shared with 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins, the mother of their 3-month-old daughter Zoey. Belcher shot Perkins at their home Saturday morning before driving to Arrowhead Stadium, where he committed suicide in the practice facility's parking lot, police said.
Police responded to a report about 2:50 a.m. Saturday of a man sleeping in his car outside an apartment building, police spokesman Darin Snapp said Tuesday. When police approached the car, Belcher got out of the vehicle and was cooperative, Snapp said.
''We ask him 'Why are you sleeping here?', and he says he's there to visit his girlfriend, but she's not home,'' Snapp said.

Had a history of violence — ‘roid rage?
In Idaho, if they find you sleeping in a car like that, they’ll give you a sobriety test.
Heck one time in Montana I was pulled over for not having a front plate.
He let me go, but still.
Haha, yep. I got nailed between Austin and San Marcos for no front plate!
They need your number...More revenue...Keep those government retirement benefits coming. Pretty soon, they’ll require license plates #s on the roof of your vehicle, so the chopper can scan ya for outstanding warrants, expired registration etc...It’s all for your safety.
We seem to be on opposite sides.
I have no idea what side you’re referring to, but thanks!
There’s no such thing as “Roid Rage”. More disinformation.
No such thing as roid rage????
I do believe you need to talk to some of the people who have been on “roids”.
Gura I do not have to ask others about roids.
Just trying to promote the truth. Take care.
