Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher was legally drunk when he killed his girlfriend at their home and then himself outside the team's Arrowhead Stadium practice facility, according to autopsy results released today.
In a text message sent to his secret girlfriend, Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher said he "would shoot" longtime girlfriend Kasandra Perkins "if she didn't leave him alone," according to police reports obtained by The Star. On Dec. 1, Belcher shot and killed Perkins then killed himself at Arrowhead Stadium.
Police say the Chiefs were providing counseling to linebacker Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins. But before taking his own life Saturday outside the team's practice facility, Belcher, who had killed Perkins earlier in their home, said the counseling wasn't enough to fix their problems.
