Chiefs LB Jovan Belcher kills self, girlfriend

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher committed suicide after taking the life of his girlfriend. The suicide occurred at Arrowhead Stadium and the 25-year-old shot himself in front of "a couple of coaches," according to a source close to the team. "We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation."

Fantasy Analysis:

Senseless tragedy. The NFL has already told the Carolina Panthers to fly to Kansas City with the early plan to continue to play the game Sunday. Details are sparse about what led to the events. Belcher was a starting inside linebacker. He grew up in Long Island, NY and played his college ball with the Maine Black Bears. My thoughts go out to his family, friends, the entire organization, and the Kansas City community. Belcher leaves behind a three-month old daughter, the mother having been killed in the incident.
