Two months before Jovan Belcher murdered the mother of his child and then committed suicide in front of his coach and GM, the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker linebacker sent a text — to his OTHER girlfriend — that he "would shoot" Kasandra Perkins.
This according to documents released this week as prosecutors close the case.
In the message, Belcher said he “would shoot” Perkins “if she didn’t leave him alone” ... At the time, the secret girlfriend thought Belcher was joking.
But apparently he wasn't joking because two months later he murdered Perkins with 10 bullets after returning from the home of a woman.
The text-message shocker is among several revelations revealed in the final report, as the tragedy is officially ruled a murder-suicide.
