terribly sad. what could have been so bad?

I wonder whether he had a severe concussion or injury to his head in the past.

Also, suicide is horrible to think about, but killing his girlfriend ??? That's murder. I can't feel that sorry for him because of what he did to her, but I feel sorry for his family and the girl's family.

I read that yesterday. It's very sad. I wonder what could have happened that he felt so hopeless that he ended both their lives. And how horrible that he killed himself in front of the KC Chiefs GM and coach (i think that is who it was, correct me if I'm wrong).

Just another angry man who gets paid millions of dollars to play sports!

I just wish these men would have enough sanity left to shoot themselves FIRST.

He probably didn't plan on the suicide part. Probably killed her then left. Realized what he had done, then decided to kill himself. But, we will never know unless he left a note or said something to his coach about it first.

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Kasandra Perkins (photos below) and Jovan Belcher battled over their child, not a Trey Songz concert, hours before their murder-suicide, claims news reports. Kasandra Perkins did attend a Trey Songz concert and may have attended an afterparty hours before her murder. News reports tonight indicate that Perkins’ purported actions about the couple’s baby prior to the concert fueled Belcher’s argument.
Trey Songz had nothing to do with the tragic murder suicide Saturday. And yet, false news reports are drawing Trey Songz into the discussion. He issued a news statement indicating “As sad as it may be, it has nothing to do with me. sending prayers up to the families and friends of the people involved”.

Multiple reports claim that Perkins may have removed the couple’s child from the home before the concert. That didn’t sit well with Belcher, claims news.

The Kansas City Star reports the couple did argue regularly. But there was no history of violence. “According to a friend of Kasandra Perkins, the woman killed today by Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, the couple argued in the early morning hours after the woman was out late attending Friday’s Trey Songz concert at The Midland.”
The Star added “The friend, who asked not to be identified, said Belcher confronted Perkins when she returned home about 1 a.m. The couple had dated about three years and argued frequently, the friend said, but she wasn’t aware of any prior physical abuse.”
Deadpsin’s source, in contrast, indicates that Perkins allegedly removed the couple’s child from their home before the concert. The source also claims that the couple were battling in recent weeks about the child. “This was the result of a long term conflict. I’m referring to the rumors that this was solely related to an argument about her attending the Trey Songs concert… It wasn’t. Kasi had left and taken Zoe (their daughter) to a relative’s house without his consent and refused to come home.”
Deadspin’s source claims that a child custody battle was brewing. “In addition to that she made it clear that she was leaving and wild (would?) contact a lawyer … It had little, if anything to do with one isolated argument.”
Earlier, LALATE reported that Jamaal Charles’ wife is Perkins’ cousin. Today, Deadspin’s source says the couple had been arguing for weeks. “[On the Thursday night after the Nov. 12 Chiefs-Steelers Monday Night Football game] he came home and Kasi had taken the baby (Zoe) to Jamaal Charles residence because she is cousins with Jamaals wife Whitney. They had been arguing for quite a few weeks prior which was nothing new.”

How awkward for Trey and what a F'd up situation.

Having a baby can throw the best couples into a maelstrom. So sad for the little one.

luvmylocs 12-04-2012 05:05 PM

more disturbing details

Lotsawaves 12-04-2012 05:18 PM

That is so sad. I had a cousin who shot his wife then himself. They had 4 children who fortunately weren't home at the time.

luvmylocs 12-04-2012 05:24 PM

i'm a football fan so i've been following this story closely. some websites were suggesting "roid rage" which for those that don't know comes from when people use steroids and literally go bizonkers.

CurlyCurlies 12-04-2012 07:59 PM

I think all of the concussions that he, no doubt, sustained throughout years of playing football may have played a part, too.

I seriously doubt the baby or the fact they had a baby had anything to do w/ this.

luvmylocs 12-04-2012 10:19 PM

this article really struck a nerve. it really made me think of how some men act when a woman is pregnant and at her most vulnerable state. i'm sickened by this whole story and i think the author of the article says what many won't say. it's terrible. i know from personal experience that some men are downright mean and insensitive during what should be the most special time in a couples lives.
