Jovan Belcher, the former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker who shot and killed his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself, had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit when it happened.

A new autopsy report shows Belcher was drinking at some point during the day before he shot 22-year old Kasandra Perkins to death following a disagreement. Belcher, whose mother had moved in with him and Perkins to help with their newborn daughter, said she heard the argument get violent before several gunshots went off in the bedroom of their home. She ran in to find Belcher kneeling over Perkins, visibly upset, and he left quickly. He later showed up at the football stadium where his team was practicing and shot himself in front of his coach and the Chiefs’ general manager.

The couple’s argument led to speculation that there was infidelity involved, and some said Belcher was distressed because he believed their infant daughter wasn’t actually his.

Now that the autopsy report has come back, many are wondering why the police didn’t intervene when they found him sitting in his idling car early on the morning of the shooting. Reports say officers discovered Belcher asleep in his car outside the apartment of a friend and had him arrange to sleep it off at the friend’s house.

    They could have charged him with DWI if he was in the drivers seat and the car was running. Then again, we don’t know the real details of what happened there do we???

    Domestic violence is why he did what he did. He was jealous, possessive, a liar, and a cheater.The excuse or reasoning behind this heinous crime was the baby wasn’t his (but it was), she was cheating on him ( but it was proven he was the cheating baztard), and now it is alcohol. You running out of excuses. Why do you all keep lurking on this story instead of telling the real truth of the matter.Out of respect of Kasandra Perkins, who is the real victim, stop discussing matters of the dead. Neither one of them can speak for themselves, their families are still in mourning, and domestic violence is still not being brought up. This is a classic case of Domestic Violence and no one is acknowledging this. You all are romanticizing the death of a mother, sister, and daughter. She was someone special and you are completely disrespecting her living child. Why even give a monster regards? Because he was a Chiefs player? Well he sucked as an athlete,son,leader, and father. He killed himself because he was a SELFISH person, the way everyone knew him was not the real him. He had a deep dark murderous heart and it was full of hate so why don’t you all just bury all the negativity with him.He was not even a good team player to the team for even coming to the stadium like that and cursing Kauffman Stadium with negative energy. He let his family down and was insecure with himself. If Kasandra was your daughter, white or black, how would you feel seeing her murderer being broadcasted everyday for frivolousness things done before his selfish act. Just think about it. You all act inhumane and continue to glorify death until it comes to your door knocking. And it will come.
