Kansas City Chiefs

Victorious the Day After

Jovan Belcher Tragedy

12/2/2012 12:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1202_CHEIFS_GAMEJust one day after linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and then himself, the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Carolina Panthers, 27-21. 

Brady Quinn threw for 201 yards and two touchdowns and Jamaal Charles added 127 yards on the ground in the victory ... which is just the second of the season for the Chiefs.

Early Saturday morning, Belcher shot his girlfriend at their home, then drove to the team facility and thanked team personnel before he shot himself.

Belcher was 25.

This was a self inflicted suicide and a murder.
Why should any team feel bad for a murderer?
Only feel bad for his dead girlfriend ..and the baby they left behind..
glad he did not hurt the baby..

I'm love football season but I don't see what a win has to do with anything. A woman was slaughtered, an infant was left an orphan, and he killed himself in public. Wow.

Im sorry but why are they grieving for man who murder a young woman, the mother of his infant child, in fornt of HER own mother. Then he was such a coward he took his own life. His name should be Mudd. Good riddance. I feel bad for the woman's family.

No 1 wins 2 people are dead! An innocent child left with no parents is senseless there is nothing victorious about that! The game should have been canceled out of respect for the grieving family

Its disgusting to watch the nfl announcers discuss this on TV today....how he thanked his coaches, and what a great guy he was, and how he will be missed. Uhm....can someone please remind everyone else that he committed murder? I don't feel sorry for him....what about this infant child they have....or the wife's family? That is the tragedy.

I sure hope they aren't using this man's death as some kind of inspirartion. He was a selfish loser that murdered a young woman and left his only child an orphan. He also left her w/ the awful stat that children of a parent that commits suicide are more apt to commit suicide themselves. Way to go Daddy.
