Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher reportedly spent his final few hours – before he went home, shot dead his girlfriend and then took his own life.
Brittni Glass, pictured as she walked to work at an Armani Exchange in Kansas City, enjoyed drinks and dinner with the NFL star before witnesses reportedly saw him enter her apartment building.
The images come as frantic 911 calls made by Belcher’s mother were also released, revealing the chaotic scene as she begged his girlfriend to ‘stay with me’ after he shot her multiple times.
Just hours before she made the call, Belcher was awoken by police officers at 2.50am as he slept outside an apartment block in his car. He told them that he was there to visit his ‘girlfriend’, yet she was not home, police spokesman Darin Snapp said.
Snapp said Belcher made a phone call and a short time later, a woman let Belcher into her building.
While Snapp said police did not question the woman and don’t know who she is, the New York Post identified her as Glass.
Witnesses have since told police that Belcher stayed at the apartment until 6:30 a.m., Snapp said.
“I was with him that night, that’s it,” Glass told the Post.
Glass said they had been together that night but were not in a relationship and would not say where he slept. Police confirmed that several people came forward to tell them about Belcher’s visit.
Snapp added: “When he was sleeping she may have come home, and he didn’t realize. He was very cooperative and thanked the officers.”
He went off their radar until about 7:50 a.m., when police were called to Belcher’s home after he had shot and killed Perkins.
Her body was found on the floor of the master bathroom with multiple gunshot wounds, according to a police incident report.
In 911 calls released by Kansas City police on Wednesday, Belcher’s mother, Cheryl Shepherd, begs Perkins to stay alive.
“Stay with me, the ambulance is on the way. Stay with me,” she shouts.
She adds to the dispatcher: “She’s still breathing but please hurry. I don’t know how he… They were arguing, please hurry.”
Shepherd told dispatchers that Perkins was bleeding, ‘just barely’ awake and that it looked as though she was wounded in the back. She said Perkins moved when she spoke to her.
When police arrived at the couple’s home at about 7:50 a.m., they found Perkins’ body on the floor of the master bathroom with gunshot wounds to her chest, neck and abdomen.
In a brief phone conversation, Shepherd, who had been staying with the couple to help out with the baby, said she had a ‘beautiful relationship’ with Perkins.
She added that she has been working on funeral arrangements for Belcher but has not managed to sleep or eat much since the slayings.
The estate or guardian of the infant of the Chiefs player Belcher will receive more than $1 million under terms of the NFL’s collective-bargaining agreement.
Belcher’s 3-month-old daughter, Zoey, stands to receive $108,000 annually over the next four years, $48,000 in the fifth year and then $52,000 each year until age 18. She’ll continue to receive that amount until age 23 if she attends college.
The beneficiary of Belcher, who was in his fourth season, also will receive $600,000 in life insurance, plus $200,000 for each credited season. There is also $100,000 in a retirement account that will go to his beneficiary or estate.
