The Jovan Belcher Case Gets Messier With Every New Detail


When something as shocking as the Jovan Belcher murder-suicide case happens, it’s only natural to wonder what events could have led up to such a horrific conclusion. And – unfortunately but unsurprisingly, for a tragedy of this magnitude – seemingly every new bit of information that’s released seems to complicate the overall story all the more. Take what SI’s Thayer Evans reported last evening, that Belcher had been out partying with another woman the night before he killed his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins and himself:

He had been with a woman in the Power and Light District, an area of bars in downtown Kansas City.

The New York Post identified this woman as Brittni Glass:

After dinner and drinks Friday night at a local tavern, the former Long Island high-school star took the woman, Brittni Glass, to her home, but spent the next several hours asleep in his Bentley outside her building, neighbors said.

[...]

“I was with him that night, that’s it,” a reluctant Glass told The Post yesterday.

Additionally, Glass said she and Belcher weren’t in a relationship. One of Glass’s neighbors expanded a bit more on the situation that night:

“His Bentley was parked outside,” a neighbor said. “He went upstairs. He was drunk. He went up to see the girl.’’

However, according to Evans’ report, she wasn’t there, and after police woke him up while he was sleeping in his car, two neighbors of Glass’s allowed Belcher to sleep in their apartment, which he did until they woke him up – at his request – around 6:30 a.m. According to this report from the Kansas City Star, police determined that Belcher would be able to drive himself home after they woke him up in his car, but the neighbor’s account of his drunkenness (and Belcher’s sleeping over in their building) seems to contradict that.

As far as Belcher being out with another woman goes – maybe they were just friends, maybe not. The real complication is that the original version of events, the argument between Belcher and Perkins began after Perkins arrived home from a concert:

According to a friend of Kasandra Perkins, the woman killed today by Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, the couple argued in the early morning hours after the woman was out late attending Friday’s Trey Songz concert at The Midland.

The friend, who asked not to be identified, said Belcher confronted Perkins when she returned home about 1 a.m.

Of course, according to the more recent telling, Belcher wouldn’t have been home when Perkins initially arrived. It could be that Perkins’ friend was just confused on the specifics – there was definitely an argument in the morning – but the more we’re hearing, the less clear the sequence of events becomes. What hasn’t changed, though, especially in light of new details on Belcher’s final moments – the account of Belcher as a deeply troubled person. That, above all else, is what spurred this tragedy on, and that’s the detail that matters most.

    i live in kc and i couldnt be more ashamed of this murdering coward. he has a live-in girlfriend/babymama that he was in relationshiop counseling with and he was out getting drunk and having sex with other women? then he goes home and his girl calls him out for being out drunk late with other women and he shoots her 9 times? what a disgusting coward. just when i thought i couldnt be more embarrassed by the chiefs one of theirs goes off and does this? clark hunt the owner only shows his face when somebody kills themselves in his stadium? im just soo ashamed of the kc chiefs and embarrassed that javon belcher even lived in the same town as me. scott pioli toughts bringing in guys with great character and the “right 53″. just like everything scott pioli has done his kc, its another huge embarrassing failure.

    Your an idiot. They had a child together. Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you can sleep around, dumb@ss.

    First of all neither of you know them personally so keep your goofy ass comments and opinions to a bare minimum, I dont see no facts what so ever!!! If your ashamed of anything be ashamed at who runs Kansas City and the daily occurrences and murders happening everyday that constituted just as this one. Damn right if your in a monogamous relationship you should be able to go where ever you want and communication should be justifiable among them to begin with, unfortunately to young souls growthing and building will have trials and tribulations that’s what consummate life partners people. Those who criticize others in problems are the same ppl that in rough times like this could not have asked upon by either one of you all for psychological guidance because you don’t know shit only what you’ve heard not what you’ve researched with validity!!! You all should be talking about how you could have help save two young individuals that were going through lifes occurrences and not how you feel about them, because it may have been those same irrational remarks that create this particular incident.

    There is always two sides to every story. I want to hear “the dirt” on Perkins. Oh, wait a minute…she’s the victim so we’ll just sweep “that dirt” under the rug. :+)
