Jovan Belcher's house

This is the house where NFL linebacker Jovan Belcher murdered his girlfriend.

It is situated at 5401 Crysler Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri.

Belcher and his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, started living here with their baby daughter in 2012.

On December 1st, 2012, Belcher shot Perkins multiple times with a handgun in the master bedroom. He then drove to the Kansas Chiefs' training ground, where he committed suicide.

At the time of the murder-suicide, Belcher's mother, Cheryl Shepherd, was also living in the house, as she had moved from New York to Missouri to help the couple look after their daughter.

Belcher and Perkins had a tumultuous on-and-off relationship that was marred by frequent arguments. Shortly before the shooting, the pair broke up and started living apart. However, by Thanksgiving, they had decided to get back together again.

On the night of November 30th, 2012, Belcher reportedly confronted Perkins after she arrived home late from a concert.

Following the argument, they both left the house and went their separate ways.

That night, Belcher went drinking with another woman named Britney Glass, whom he had been seeing since March.

When he returned to Crysler Avenue early the next morning, he and Perkins started arguing again.

During the argument, Belcher picked up a handgun and shot her nine times. The 22-year-old was hit in the neck, chest, abdomen, and back.

Following the shooting, the linebacker jumped into his car and drove to the Kansas City Chiefs' training ground. Meanwhile, his mother, Cheryl, frantically called 911.

During the call, Cheryl could be heard begging Perkins to stay alive.

When Belcher reached the parking lot of the training ground, he encountered the team's general manager and two members of the coaching staff.

Although the three men tried to persuade him to put the gun down, Belcher refused to listen. As the sound of sirens began to echo around him, he reportedly said, "I can't be here." He then kneeled down by a car and shot himself in the head.

In the aftermath of the murder-suicide, it was revealed the alcohol in Belcher's blood was twice the legal driving limit. An autopsy also determined that he was suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

The condition, which is linked to repeated head injuries, can cause behavioral problems, mood swings, and difficulties with thinking.

The house was built in 2007, and it is roughly 1,680 square feet in size. Judging by public listings, it is now a rental property.

Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins began living here at some point in late 2012. At the time, they had a three-month-old daughter named Zoey.

Following the murder-suicide, Belcher's mother, Cheryl Shepherd, and Perkins' cousin, Sophie Perkins, fought for custody of Zoey.

In June of 2013, a judge awarded Sophie Perkins custody of the child.


Kasandra Perkins

Belcher and Perkins started dating in 2010. Their daughter, Zoey, was born in September of 2012.

According to friends, the couple were constantly arguing about finances and his habit of staying out late at night.

At the time, the linebacker was reportedly drinking a lot. According to teammates, he had started acting "weird" following a series of suspected concussions. He seemed more emotional, angry, and forgetful. On a number of occasions, he would stop talking in the middle of a conversation, almost as though his mind had suddenly gone blank.

Belcher confronted Perkins after she returned home from a Trey Songz concert on the night of November 30th, 2012. Following the argument, he went drinking with another woman named Britney Glass, whom he had reportedly been seeing since March of that year.

Although he spent time with Glass in the Power and Light District in downtown Kansas City, he eventually ended up losing her in the crowd.

In the early hours of the morning, the police found him passed out in his car with the engine running. At the time, he was parked outside Glass' apartment building.

Glass was not at home at the time.

The officers gave Belcher "a break" by telling him that he needed to leave his car and go inside the building to avoid being arrested for drunk driving. After complying with their demands, he knocked on the door of one of Glass' neighbors, who allowed him to stay the night.

At around 7 a.m. on December 1st, 2012, he arrived back at his house drunk, and began arguing with Perkins again.

During the argument, he pulled out a .40 caliber handgun and shot her nine times.

In the 911 call, his mother, Cheryl Shepherd, can be heard shouting, "Stay with me, the ambulance is on the way. Stay with me, Kasandra. Stay with me."

When the paramedics arrived, they found the 22-year-old dead in the master bedroom with multiple gunshot wounds.
