KANSAS CITY, Mo. - People are coming and going from the house where a day before Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend before committing suicide in front of his coach.
Police did not release any additional information about Saturday's murder-suicide. Belcher and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Kasandra M. Perkins, had a 3-month-old daughter.
A man who answered the door at the couple's house Sunday asked reporters, "Can you all respect grieving?"
A short time later, two men loaded bags in a car, and two women drove away in it.
Neighbors in the Kansas City subdivision are stunned. Thirty-one-year-old Kristen VanMeter said she had taken community-college courses with Perkins.
She called the murder-suicide a "surprise" and questioned what triggered it. Police reiterated Sunday that the couple had argued recently.
