Kansas City Chiefs player kills girlfriend then commits suicide

Tragic news from Kansas City Chiefs, player kills girlfriend then self

This morning while I was catching up on reading emails and doing a little general web browsing, I stumbled on this shocking story with some tragic news coming from the Kansas City Chiefs.

Earlier today Chief’s defensive line backer Jovan Belcher had allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend, before driving to the Kansas City Arrowhead Stadium and then turning the gun on himself and committing suicide.

At this time it is not known how many were present to witness the event, but the reports I have read so far state that one of the coaches and general manager of the team may have been witness to the tragic end of his life.

Currently there is a football game scheduled between the Chiefs and the Carolina Panthers for Sunday afternoon December 2, 2012 at 1:00 PM in Kansas City. The game will go on as scheduled.

The Chief’s record this year, currently at 1 win and 10 losses places them in last place in the AFC West. They meet the Panthers, currently at 3 and 8 and in last place in the NFC South division.

With their current records, neither team has any chance of post-season play. The sportsbooks have picked the Panthers as 3 point favorites and this news will make the game on Sunday that much more difficult for the team.

I don’t recall what the line was on this game yesterday at Bet Online, but I read one report that William Hill adjusted their line from 3 to 3.5. A few of the books in Vegas had taken the game off the board but it was reported that they would likely put it back up once news that the game would go on as scheduled was recieved.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to both the Belcher family and the family of his late girlfriend.
