While there are still many questions unanswered in the shooting death of Titans’ Steve McNair, it appears he was involved in a murder/suicide with a young woman named Sahel Kazemi. The family of the slain quarterback have issued a brief statement.
Steve McNair’s wife Mechelle is said to be “very upset,” and has spoken to police officials in her home, according to Don Aaron, police spokesman. Aaron said, “at this juncture, we do not believe she [Mechelle] is involved.”
The McNair family have released a brief statement:
“The families of Steve McNair in Mississippi and Tennessee appreciate the concern, thoughts and prayers during this difficult time of our loss of a husband, father and son.
“The family requests everyone would allow them time to mourn.
“The McNair family appreciates and continues to request your prayers at this time.”
We can’t even begin to imagine the pain the family is suffering. Losing a loved one is difficult enough, and having something so violent happen to your family member must be absolutely beyond devastating. Our hearts go out to McNair’s wife and children.
