The 25-year-old Kansas City Chiefs linebacker shot himself in the head in front of his coaches at Arrowhead Stadium on Dec. 1 minutes after fatally shooting his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, multiple times at their home. The couple, who leave behind an infant daughter, had gotten into an argument that morning. A University of Maine alum and an undrafted free agent, Belcher signed with the Chiefs in 2009 and started in 44 out of 59 games with them. He amassed a career-high 61 tackles last season and had recorded 33 thus far this season.
