Police: Girlfriend Killed Steve McNair in Murder-Suicide
Fox News ^ | July 8, 2009

Posted on 07/08/2009 1:40:07 PM PDT by Zakeet

Police confirmed Wednesday that ex-NFL star Steve McNair's 20-year-old girlfriend killed him before turning the gun on herself.

They said they may never know what was going through Sahel Kazemi's mind when she shot McNair in his condominium early Saturday, but interviews with friends led detectives to conclude she was becoming increasingly distraught over events in her life, including financial problems. Police said she also suspected McNair was seeing another woman.

Police earlier had labeled McNair's death a homicide, but awaited further tests and investigation before saying for sure what happened.

At one point, Kazemi told an associate that her "personal life was all screwed up," Police Chief Ronal Serpas said. She had mounting debts and had been unable to sell her car. Her roommate was moving, which would have doubled her rent.

"We do know that she was clearly sending a message during the last five to seven days of her life that things were going bad quickly," Serpas said, though there was no indication she told anyone she planned to harm McNair.

Serpas said police believe McNair was asleep on a sofa when Kazemi shot him in the head. She then apparently shot him twice in the chest before shooting him again in the head and then shooting herself.

McNair, a quarterback for the Tennessee Titans most of his career, was shot at a condo he rented with another man. The gun was found underneath Kazemi.

Kazemi's family told reporters that the woman was so confident McNair was divorcing his wife of 12 years that she was preparing to sell her furniture and move in with him.

But associate Mike Mu ... said McNair's wife, Mechelle McNair, "didn't know who this girl is." No records of divorce proceedings have surfaced.

You lie down with dogs, you’re going to get fleas. Apparently, sometimes those fleas are armed with large caliber handguns.

She pulled a "Phil Hartman" on him.

Lie to a woman and treat her like a disposable entertainment device, and you never know what you're going to get.

LOL. Waaaaaaaht?! His wife is 37 or so. A 37 year old woman can’t be hot? Sarah Palin is in her mid 40s and she’s had four kids and she’s hot.

"she’s rather attractive."

The crazy ones usually are very hot.

You have to check her attractiveness, however, against the Hot-Crazy Line or the Vicky Mendoza diagonal. Clearly, this woman was far into the red.

Yes Sarah Palin is hot. And yes women can be 37 and hot. I'm just saying 20 yr old hot chick vs. 37 yr old hot chick No Contest. Not to mention McNair's wife is just average to begin with...

I guess one word comes to mind and that word would be “Meth”.

Doesn’t make any sense applying the normal rules of logic, but if girlfriend were strung out on Meth - that might explain the rising debts, the personal life going badly, and the flawed thinking.

I think that may be a mug shot. The article states she was arrested two days before for DUI.

For the record, the hotter a woman is, the crazier she is allowed to be.

The red area is the “Shelly Galesby Zone,” which is where woman clearly exceeds the permitted hot/crazy line.

McNair should have followed the “half your age + 7” rule.

He was 36 so he shouldn’t have been messing with girls under 25.
