New details have emerged in the deaths of former Titans star Steve McNair and his alleged lover, Sahel Kazemi, after autopsies were performed early Sunday morning.
Sunday morning autopsies revealed that McNair was shot four times twice in the head, twice in the chest, all at close range. His girlfriend, 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi, died of a gunshot wound to the side of the head. A semi-automatic pistol was found on the floor under her body, however, officials will not confirm a murder-suicide or rule out a double homicide until all evidence is processed. Both victims were fully clothed. It’s not known yet, who owns the gun.
Police spokesperson Don Aaron said, “While it is clear McNair’s death is a homicide, the police department is not classifying Kazemi’s death, pending further investigation and interviews with persons who knew her and McNair.
“We can’t be close-minded. All scenarios are on the table.”
There are also rumors floating around that Sahel was pregnant but the initial autopsy did not indicate that she was. Police are questioning family and friends of the pair. Aaron added, “We’ve already begun talking to their friends to ascertain any squabbles they were having, were they upset with each other and if so, why.”
The autopsy showed McNair and Kazemi died early Saturday morning and their bodies were found by the football player’s friend.
Toxicology results will not be available for several weeks.
I hope Mechelle, Steve’s wife, and their children are surrounded by lots of friends and family. They are going to need much support during this difficult time.
