Police interviews conducted with Cheryl Shepherd, the mother of Kansas City linebacker Jovan Belcher, reveal that Belcher argued with his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, about their daughter’s paternity before shooting her multiple times then turning the gun on himself.
“The mother believed that there was an issue over whether [Belcher] was the father,” said a source told The NY Post. “She said he [believed he] wasn’t necessarily the father of the child.”
A Sports Illustrated reporter tracked down a few of Jovan Belcher’s last text messages before he shot and killed his girlfriend and then turned the gun on himself.
On Thanksgiving night Belcher, 25, exchanged text messages with Reggie Paramoure, who played on the football team with Belcher at the University of Maine.
In the text messages, the Kansas City Chief’s linebacker called his newborn daughter a “blessing”, criticized his team’s offense and complained about relationship problems with his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, 22.
The newborn baby of Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher can be heard crying hysterically in the background of a 911 tape obtained by TMZ.
3-month-old Zoey Belcher may have been in the same room where Belcher, 25, shot Kasandra Perkins, 22, multiple times during an argument that turned violent early Saturday. Belcher then drove to the nearby Chiefs training facility and committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager.
