Jovan Belcher’s body was exhumed in order to perform tests on his brain

The body of former NFL linebacker Jovan Belcher was exhumed late last week in order to perform tests on his brain, a lawyer for the player’s family told the Kansas City Star.

Attorney Dirk Vandever told the newspaper that Belcher’s family hopes tests will provide a clue as to why the four-year veteran of the Kansas City Chiefs shot his longtime girlfriend to death then killed himself about a year ago.

Belcher’s body was exhumed Friday from a cemetery in Long Island, New York, the paper reported. It was not clear where the body was sent for examination.

This is a sad case, but maybe it will give the family a little closure, if they can in fact find out what caused him to snap.
