KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

Man, this is heartbreaking. Unconfirmed reports say LB Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend, drove to the Chiefs facility and in front of Crennel shot himself to death

Holy S%$!!! I was just signing in to post about this, but I didn't realize the guy did it in front of Crennel. This is a horrible situation but that fact just makes it all the worst.

My heart goes out to the Chiefs and their fans.

It's unconfirmed, and I can't stress that enough, that he came in to the facility distraught. Crennel and Pioli were there. He shot himself in front of them

In any case, just a horribly tragic situation.

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

WOW! That's the last thing the poor chiefs need. The saddest part is that today was his birthday and leave an infant child behind. Very Tragic news.

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

I hadn't heard of anything that dramatic before. Except in the Last Boyscout. Can't believe he has a child though, that is heartbreaking for the child. As far as the player, I don't have much sympathy for a guy who kills someone and then themselves. Petty selfish act.

That's absolutely horrible. Two people's lives gone for no reason. My heart goes out to their families and to Crennel and Pioli (if they indeed witnessed this).

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

According to this, not only did Crennel and Pioli witness the suicide, but the girl's mother witness the murder.

Kansas City Star : Chiefs player kills girlfriend, then himself


Quote:
Police Capt. David Lindaman said Belcher, 25, and his girlfriend, 22, got into an argument around 7 a.m. at their home in the 5400 block of Crysler Avenue in Kansas City. Around 7:50 a.m., Lindaman said, Belcher shot his girlfriend multiple times. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Lindaman said Belcher’s mother, who was visiting the couple and their 3-month-old daughter, witnessed the shooting and was being interviewed by police.

Belcher left the scene on Crysler and went to the Chiefs practice facility at Arrowhead, police said.

Police were called to the stadium around 8:10 a.m. When Belcher arrived there he encountered General Manager Scott Pioli, Coach Romeo Crennel and other team personnel. Police said Chiefs staff attempted to keep Belcher from committing additional acts of violence. When police arrived, they heard a gunshot and found that Belcher had shot himself in the head.

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

Wow. I cannot believe what I'm hearing. Just plan shock. There must be something wrong with that franchise if a player wants to kill himself in front of his HC and GM. Didn't someones obituary a few weeks ago read "died because of watching the chiefs play"?

this is just crazy and very very saddening to hear..

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

@JasonLaCanfora: KCPD say the player thanked both men before taking his life, and that Pioli and Crennel did not feel threatened
