Belcher's agent: No indication of anything troubling the NFL player

The Kansas City Chiefs earned their second win of the season yesterday, beating the Carolina panthers 27 to 21.

The win came one day after police say Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins multiple times and then drove the to the team's practice facility, where he turned the gun on himself.

Joe Linta is the agent for both Belcher and Romeo Crennel, the Chiefs' head coach who witnessed Belcher's suicide. Linta joins Soledad O'Brien and former NFL player Tiki Barber on Starting Point this morning to discuss the tragic incident.

"The how and the why are the questions that are troubling everyone right now," Linta says. "I knew the young man for about five years and I had nothing but fondness and respect for him obviously up until Saturday morning. There was nothing in my relationship with him that would indicate any troubling past, anything that troubled him that would cause him to commit such a heinous act."
