Jovan Belcher Murder of Kasandra Perkins Began With Trey Songz Concert

Saturday’s tragedy in Kansas City may have started on Friday night, when Kasandra Perkins attended a Trey Songz concert at The Midland Theater. The Kansas City Star reports that Perkins and Chief’s linebacker Jovan Belcher got into an argument early Saturday morning over her late night out at the show. A friend of Perkins said that she returned to their home on Crysler Avenue around 1 a.m. that night, and that though the couple had argued frequently during their three years together, she wasn’t aware of any physical abuse.

After hearing that Perkins may have attended his concert, Songz made sure to remove himself from the situation. “I don’t delete tweets, nor am I insensitive to death. I had no knowledge of the murder/suicide incident until now,” he posted. “As sad as it may be, it has nothing to do with me. Sending prayers to the families and friends of the people involved.”

About an hour earlier, Trey had tweeted about Friday’s successful show. “Kansas City was a movie last night! Chitown we here baby!!!!!!”

Belcher shot and killed Perkins on Saturday morning, before traveling to the Chief’s facility and killing himself in front of team staff members. The couple leaves behind a 3-month-old daughter, who will be raised by Belcher’s mother in Long Island. Despite the incident, the Chiefs will play their scheduled home game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

    Society never gets to the root of the real issues affecting the male/female relationships. This decision to kill didn't just pop up from nowhere. This was a boiling point of something that has been boiling within him and now, it explodes. Usually, males do not talk about the issues they feel affected by, with the female. While it may seem acceptable for females to talk about what males put them through, it is not the same with males in this society.Males learn very early that its not acceptable for a man ot talk about what a woman puts him through. so, one cannot be to surprise when they act out, treat these women poorly, with verbal and physical abuse. Some go as far as killing these women. Its not a surface issue, its a very profound one , that not even society is willing to deal with.

    Everyone has a opinion, but I wish people would be mindful of the families of Kasi and Jovan, understand regardless of what you think or feel his mother is mourning the loss of 2 people that she loved and having to deal with the fact that her loving son did this, an Kasi family as well.Is easy to speak badly about someone you don't know personally.Put yourself in the families shoes.I know the press don't care about the healing and privacy of a family in mourning all they see is another story. Zoey will grow up one day and have to deal with this, so think about her. You will never know how or why unless you been there so stop judging and pray for healing and peace for the families.Its going to be a long hard road for them so respect them please….

    This happens far to often.Familes suffer and society suffers,something has to be done to prevent as many of these cases from coming to life.
