Steve McNair's Death "Apparent Murder-Suicide," Newspaper Reports

Lucas HendricksonCorrespondent IJuly 5, 2009

Newly released details into the death of Steve McNair point toward the incident being a murder-suicide.

Metro Nashville police held a 9:30pm CDT press conference Saturday releasing the name of the female victim, 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi, whom McNair was alleged to have been dating for several months.

Nashville's daily newspaper, The Tennessean, characterized the situation as a "murder-suicide" in a 10pm update on their website, after learning of the specific wounds to the victims.

The paper reported that McNair died of several gunshot wounds and was found on a sofa in the Second Avenue condominium rented under his name. Kazemi was found alongside him with a single gunshot wound to her head, and a pistol was found nearby.

Officials removed the bodies from the condominium a little after 8:30pm, and Metro police spokeman Don Aaron said they hadn't ruled any specific scenario out based on the evidence.

“The medical examiner will be conducting autopsies,” Aaron said. “We expect to make additional conclusions after the autopsy process.”
