Slowly more details are coming out about what happened in the hours before and after the murder suicide of Jovan Belcher.  Numerous outlets have reported Belcher was upset because he thought that his live-in girlfriend and childs mother Kassandra Perkins was having an affair with Trey Songz. It has since been confirmed Songz had nothing to do with it and even took to Twitter to clear his name. Back at the couples residence the argument with Belcher and Perkins started shortly thereafter. Belcher’s mother who was in town helping the couple watch their 3 month old daughter said she heard Belcher yell something to the effect: “You can’t talk to me like that!” A few minutes later  is when she heard the gunshots. Belcher’s mother raced to the bedroom only to see her son kiss Kasandra on the forehead before telling her he was sorry.  At that point Belcher apologized to his mother,  kissed his infant daughter and fled the scene. Belcher traveled to the five miles to the Chiefs facility where he confronted Chiefs GM Scott Pioli.  Belcher stepped out of his car with the gun pointed to his head and said. “I did it, I killed her.” Pioli did his best to try to get Belcher to put down the gun, but wasn’t successful, Belcher thanked Pioli for all he had done for him and asked that his daughter be taken care of. When Romeo Crennel and linebackers coach Gary Gibbs arrived and also tried to stop Belcher,  he told them simply “I have to do this.” As Crennel, Pioli and Gibbs pleaded with Belcher to put the gun down, police officers started to arrive at the scene.  Belcher hearing the sirens said to them. “I got to go, I can’t be here.” That is when Belcher kneeled behind a car, made the sign of the cross and shot himself in the head.
