According to friends and family, Kasandra Perkins was planning on leaving Belcher before things took a very ugly turn. Belcher was battling a lot of issues including concussions injuries from football, plus an addiction to alcohol and painkillers.

Belcher’s mother, who was visiting the couple and their 3-month-old daughter, witnessed the shooting and was being interviewed by police.

At approximately 8:10 a.m., according to police, a call from Arrowhead Stadium security to police came in reporting a man in the stadium parking lot was armed with a gun. Belcher had been met by team personnel in the parking lot. [Coaches] Crennel and Pioli confronted Belcher before he turned the gun on himself, which police observed upon arrival at the scene.

Police spokesman Darin Snapp said they received a call from a woman who said her daughter was shot several times. {Belcher Kills Girlfriend, Commits Suicide IN Front of Mom & Coaches, Respectively}

According to sources, domestic problems had been ongoing:

Kasandra Perkins, the mother of Belcher’s 3-month-old daughter, had threatened to leave him for good amid fighting between the pair.

The couple had only recently reconciled after Perkins left their rented house in Kansas City with the baby at one point to stay with friends. Perkins had returned, but friends said the relationship was still volatile.

It didn’t help that he was drinking every day and taking painkillers while dealing with the effects of debilitating head injuries, the friend said.

Belcher, 25, and Perkins, 22, had argued for the last time when she returned home late from a concert Saturday morning. But the Belcher friend said the concert was only a “tipping point.”

“This was the result of a long-term conflict,” the pal said. “She made it clear that she was leaving and would contact a lawyer’’ to fight for custody and child support.

Cops today revealed that Belcher shot Perkins nine times before committing suicide with a different gun. His mother witnessed the slaying; she had been in town to help Perkins with the new baby, sources have said. {Source}
