Jovan Belcher 911 Call Released. His Mother Pleads For Ambulance As Kasandra Perkins Dies
Recordings of a 911 call show Jovan Belcher’s mother begging her son’s dying girlfriend to stay alive after the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker shot her.
Cheryl Shepherd called 911 Saturday shortly after Belcher shot 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins at their home. Belcher then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and shot himself in the head in the presence of his general manager and coach.
On the Kansas City Fire Department recordings, Shepherd yells at Perkins: ”Stay with me, the ambulance is on the way. Stay with me.”
Shepherd tells the dispatcher that Perkins is ”just barely” breathing and that she is bleeding.
Belcher’s mother also says her son and Perkins were arguing and that he had left the house.
Police say they found Perkins body on the bedroom floor with multiple gunshot wounds.
Maniac MN ~6yr old freezes to death after being left outside ALL night long
The cousin of a 6-year-old girl who froze to death overnight in Bemidji last month has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.
After being released from jail Monday, 22-year-old Rachel Stacey Downer talked exclusively with 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS about the final hours of Mercedes Mayfield’s life. “I’m hurt right now. I’m going through a tough time right now, it’s like my whole life has been taken away from me because of this,” she said.
According to Bemidji police, Downer was arrested Friday in connection to the death of Mercedes, who was found by her mother on the front step of their apartment building around 6 a.m. on Feb 27, after temperatures had dipped to 27 degrees below zero with a wind chill of 40 below zero.
The criminal complaint said Mayfield’s mother, Malika Peoples, had put Downer in charge of watching the little girl and her 3-year-old sibling while she was at work earlier that day.
Peoples told investigators she hurt her shoulder at work and had taken pain medication, the complaint said. Peoples asked Downer to watch the children that night so she could go to bed early.
The complaint said Peoples woke to her alarm clock around 6 a.m. the next morning and when she went to check on Mercedes, the child was not in her room. Peoples told investigators she saw Mercedes lying outside on the front step of the apartment complex, pulled her into the entryway and called emergency crews.
