Steve McNair and his lady friend, Sahel Kazemi, both found dead Saturday in McNair’s rented condo in Nashville, TN, were killed in an apparent murder suicide.
When news of Steve McNair’s death was breaking earlier, there were very few details available, but now that the police have had a chance to investigate further, it appears that McNair and his lady friend, Sahel Kazemi were killed in a murder suicide.
The Tennessean is reporting that McNair was found on the sofa in his rented Nashville condo with several gunshot wounds to his head and body. Kazemi was found near him with a single, apparently self-inflicted gunshot to the head. There was also a pistol found next to her body.
McNair, a married man, met Kazemi while she was working as a waitress at a restaurantat a few months ago and had been dating up until the time of their deaths.
A few days ago, Kazemi was pulled over in a black Cadillac Escalade and was charged for drunk driving as well as refusing to submit to a breath test. McNair was in the vehicle with her. McNair also bailed her out of jail later that day.
So far, this situation has all the earmarks of of a love triangle gone bad, but it’s still too early to determine what actually happened.
Autopsies will be performed on the bodies of Steve McNair and Sahel Kazemi (photos above) Sunday and more concrete details will be released by the Coroner and police afterwards.
