Jovan Belcher murdered his baby's mama Kasandra Perkins and then killed himself earlier this month.
According to reports, the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker sent a text message to his secret lovah stating that he "would shoot" Kasandra "if she didn't leave him alone."
Anything could've sparked Jovan to follow through with the unbearable happening, but considering that Kasandra told Belcher that she would "take all his money and his child if they split up," we can only imagine what clicked in his head to do something so horrible.
If the secret woman would've came forward with the text messages, the murder could've possibly been STOPPED, but it's fair to say that people don't take others seriously when they say they're going to "shoot" someone.
This is sad in soooo many ways.
