Belcher asleep in car, told cops he was waiting for girlfriend

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City police say Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher spent some of his final hours sleeping in his car outside an apartment building, waiting for someone he described as his "girlfriend."

 

     The apartment complex is about 10 miles from the Kansas City home Belcher shared with 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins, the mother of their 3-month-old daughter Zoey. Belcher, 25, shot Perkins at their home Saturday morning before driving to Arrowhead Stadium, where he committed suicide in the practice facility's parking lot, police said.

 

     Police spokesman Darin Snapp says the officers who spoke to Belcher at about 2:50 a.m. Saturday determined he didn't have any outstanding warrants. He says Belcher made a phone call and that a few minutes later, a woman let him into the building.

 

     Hours after that, Belcher shot and killed Perkins, then then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and killed himself in the parking lot in front of team officials.
