I'm surprised they didn't do this before.




Jovan Belcher's body exhumed for brain examination

Published Saturday, Dec 14, 2013 at 12:14 pm EST

Jovan Belcher's body is being examined for new clues into the shocking set of slayings a year ago that saw him kill his girlfriend and then turn a gun on himself.

Belcher's family requested his body be exhumed from a cemetery in Bay Shore, N.Y., an attorney told the Kansas City Star.

Under question is whether Belcher had disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a brain disease believed linked to concussions.

On Dec. 1, 2012, Belcher shot and killed Kasandra Perkins. He then drove to the Kansas City Chiefs' facilities at Arrowhead Stadium and killed himself in front of team personnel.

The couple's infant daughter was left orphaned, and observers were clueless as to why Belcher, a linebacker, had committed the acts.

The plan: Test Belcher's brain. Bennet Omalu is credited with discovering the brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy. It is a degenerative disease caused by repeated head injuries. It has been linked to depression, dementia, confusion, memory loss, aggression and even suicide in many former NFL players.

"If his brain had been examined (when he died), we'd have a better understanding of why he did what he did," Omalu told the Star. "We would have a better understanding about concussions and playing football, and we would advance the understanding of the science of all of this."

An autopsy found Belcher shot Perkins nine times and was intoxicated at the time.

Yes I'm surprised too

I saw a special where there's an advocate that seeks out the family of deceased players to evaluate their brains for damage

Jovan Belcher murder/suicide triggered by money, trust issues with girlfriend Kasandra Perkins, according to newly released police report 

In one text message to a girlfriend sent in late October or early November, Belcher wrote he 'would shoot' Perkins 'if she didn’t leave him alone.'

Jovan Belcher's simmering probems with Kasandra Perkins end tragically for the young couple.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher was apparently worried he would lose his baby and money to his longtime girlfriend before fatally shooting her and killing himself, according to newly released police reports.

Belcher also complained about Kasandra Perkins, the mother of the couple’s 3-month-old daughter, in conversations and text messages sent to a woman he was dating on the side, the reports show.

In one text message sent in late October or early November, Belcher wrote he “would shoot” Perkins “if she didn’t leave him alone.” The girlfriend told police that Belcher said “his child’s mother threatened to take all his money and his child if they split up” and “knew exactly how to press his buttons and make him angry.”

Belcher shot Perkins multiple times in their home on Dec. 1 and then drove to team headquarters, where he killed himself in front of his coach and general manager after telling them he “wasn’t able to get enough help.”

The Jackson County prosecutor’s office reviewed the police reports, which first were obtained by The Kansas City Star, before closing the case Friday. It formally ruled the deaths of Belcher, 25, and Perkins, 22, a murder-suicide, prosecutor’s office spokesman Mike Mansur said Tuesday.

Police question Jovan Belcher hours before the Chiefs linebacker murders his girlfriend.

The reports provide new details about the final days and hours leading to the tragedy.

The night before the killings, Belcher went to a club with the woman he was dating while Perkins attended a concert with her friends, the reports said. A friend of Perkins has told The Star that the couple argued around 1 a.m., about Perkins being out late, although it wasn’t clear whether the argument happened in person or on the phone. The police report, which doesn’t mention this dispute, said that after Belcher kissed his girlfriend and she went inside her apartment, he fell asleep in his car.

About two hours later, police roused Belcher after someone called 911 to report his idling Bentley as suspicious. The report said Belcher was legally parked and didn’t smell of alcohol, but officers asked if he could stay inside the apartment for the night.

Belcher tried to call the girlfriend, but she didn’t discover the missed calls until the next morning and didn’t hear him at her door. Two women who were up late invited Belcher to wait inside their apartment after he explained his plight. They said Belcher “appeared to be intoxicated” but “seemed to be in good spirits . laughing, joking.”
