Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, who killed his girlfriend and himself, was part of Male Athletes Against Violence, which campaigns against violence towards women.

The 25-year-old linebacker was a member of MAAV whilst studying at the University of Maine where he played football for three years until he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009…

He and [girlfriend Kassandra] Perkins lived together and three months ago had a baby girl but are said to have rowed frequently.

The horrific murder suicide came one day before a Kansas home game against the Carolina Panthers which went ahead as scheduled.

Just a day after the deaths, the Chiefs would take the field against the Carolina Panthers eventually winning their second game of the season 27-21.

As friends and family try to work out what drove Belcher over the edge, it now seems that in recent years he was a champion of women’s rights.
