Over the weekend, the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker, Jovan Belcher murdered his baby mama Kasandra Perkins after she got home late from a Trey Songz concert, and to make things worse, he committed suicide shortly after.
Now, Belcher's family is speaking up on the HORRIBLE events.
"As a family, no words can express the sorrow we feel over the loss of Jovan and Kasandra. The impact that this inconceivable tragedy has had on our heart is immeasurable. We are overwhelmed with both sadness and confusion.
Jovan was our son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew, grandson, and friend and we will miss him and Kasandra dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Perkins family as they mourn.
We loved Jovan. His kindness, humility, respect and gratitude for family and friends were steadfast. The man we know and loved for 25 years embraced life and excelled at all he put his energy behind. Jovan was overjoyed when Kasandra gave birth to their daughter, Zoey.
He was happy to be a new father both he and Kasandra loved Zoey greatly. The immense outpouring of sympathy and support from Jovan’s friends, teammates, coaches and fans have been a reflection of the impact he had on so many people. Like them, we will cherish the wonderful memories we have of Jovan and we pray that those memories will bring us peace as we grapple to understand the unpredictable and tragic ending of his life and the life of Kasandra Perkins.
As we attempt to grieve in the aftermath of this tremendous loss we ask that you please respect our privacy in doing so. Only GOD can mend our hearts."
That is DEEP.
Even though we can't imagine what the families are going through, we do hope they can get through this in the best way possible.
Our condolences go out to everyone who was affected.
