The Chiefs announced the formation of the Zoey Michelle Belcher Irrevocable Trust.

The trust will be established through contributions from the Hunt family, as well as Chiefs players, coaches and staff. Zoey is the daughter of former Chiefs LB Jovan Belcher, who killed Zoey's mother, Kasandra Perkins, and himself in a murder-suicide on Dec. 1.

“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. ”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.”
