KANSAS CITY – Kansas City Chiefs football player Jovan Belcher, committed suicide in front of his coaches and police outside of the team’s stadium, just as officers investigating the shooting of the player’s girlfriend arrived on the scene, police said. Authorities did not release a possible motive for the murder-suicide, though they point to stress and alcohol as a factor. The couples 3-month-old daughter Zoey, remains in the temporary custody of Belcher’s mother. Concrete details about what led to the murder-suicide remain illusive.

Are murder-suicides becoming the norm?
