Although investigators aren't saying how Sahel Kazemi died over the weekend, it seems pretty obvious to me that she shot former NFL quarterback Steve McNair four times and then killed herself. Police say they are not looking for a suspect in McNair's death so this is a pretty good indication they believe it is a murder suicide. Apparently Kazemi was under the impression that McNair was going to divorce his wife and then marry her. I'm guessing that maybe he told her that wasn't going to be the case and that could be why this all happened.
News reports today are suggesting that the first time Steve McNair's wife learned of the affair was this weekend when she also learned her husband had been killed.
All of McNair's friends say of course they had no idea he was having an affair while everyone who knew Kazemi and even her neighbors knew there was an affair happening. Kazemi's aunt told The Tennessean that the pair met when Kazemi was working as a waitress at a restaurant he frequented. "He started to talk to her a little. They exchanged phone numbers, and started dating from there."
Meanwhile TMZ has some photos of the couple on vacation at some beach, and they had reportedly been all over the country together. There were reports that the night prior to the murder, Kazemi had been arrested for DUI while she and McNair were headed home from a bar. McNair was released without being charged. In May, McNair had upgraded Kazemi from the Kia she normally drove to an Escalade. He gave it to her at a party attended by all her family so obviously some people knew about the affair.
McNair leaves behind a wife and four sons.
