Chiefs set trust for Belcher's daughter
By Bill Williamson
The Kansas City Chiefs just announced they have formed a trust for the 3-month-old daughter of Jovan Belcher and Kasandra M. Perkins.
The trust has been established through contributions from the Hunt family as well as from players, coaches and staff to help Zoey Michelle Belcher. Jovan Belcher killed Perkins at their home and then killed himself at the team’s facility last Saturday.
“Our thoughts and prayers remain with the families and everyone affected by the heartbreaking events of last Saturday,” Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement. ”As we continue to struggle with the emotional pain from the tragedy, the Chiefs family is focused on helping 3-month-old Zoey Michelle Belcher as she faces the challenge of growing up without the support of her parents. Zoey will always be a part of the Chiefs family, and we hope that this trust will help to ensure she has the resources necessary as she grows up.”
According to the team, contributions may be sent to:
Zoey Belcher Trust
UMB Bank – Attn: Trust Division
P.O. Box 419226
Kansas City, MO 64179
Any checks should be made payable to:
UMB Bank, N.A., Trustee of the Zoey Michelle Belcher Irrevocable Trust.
