Jovan Belcher shocked his Kansas City Chiefs team and the NFL world on Saturday. In a report from latimes.com dated December 01, 2012, it was said that he killed his girlfriend and then shot himself in front of the Chiefs' general manager and coach after thanking them. And according to Green Bean Buddy, others couldn't help but link his actions to the brain damage common to NFL players.
As stated by the report, 25-year-old Belcher shot his 22-year-old girlfriend Kassandra Perkins at their home in Kansas City on Saturday at around 8 in the morning. He then drove to their team's training facility at Arrowhead Stadium. And right after thanking Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and their coach Romeo Crennel, the report related that he then shot himself.
As added by the report, the police said it was Belcher's mom who called that Perkins was shot. Referring to the girl as her daughter, the report detailed the police initially thought she was Perkins' mother. It said that she recently lived with the couple, who got a three-month daughter, when the incident happened.

It was said he killed her at their Kansas City home. He then drove to their team’s Arrowhead Stadium, thanked their general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel and shot himself to the head.”
Entertainment and sports news website GreenBeanBuddy.com said the police has not released a motive for Belcher's action yet. However, his mother said that the couple had been arguing recently.
