The Details Surrounding Steve McNair's Death

I have been hesitant to write this post because there have been a lot of rumors floating around all day, and the last thing I wanted to do in this case was add fuel to the rumor fire.  It does appear now that most of the details have been confirmed.  

The police are not calling this a murder-suicide yet, but all of the facts are pointing to that being the case.  When the police arrived at the condo that Steve McNair had been renting they found his body on the couch with multiple gunshot wounds.  They found the body of 20-year old Sahel Kazemi on the floor with one gunshot to the head.  The police apparently did not find the gun until they moved the bodies, which leads me to believe that the gun was under her body.  They have not released yet who the gun belongs too.

It has also come out that Kazemi was arrested earlier this week for a DUI in a Cadillac Escalade that was registered in her name, as well as McNair's.  McNair was a passenger in the car that night, but no chargers were filed against him.

The autopsies are scheduled for Sunday morning at which point I expect this police to officially rule this a murder-suicide.  

August has agreed to put in some weekend time and post some links in the morning.  Stay tuned to MCM for all of the latest breaking news.

[UPDATE 7/5/2009 3:39 p.m.]- The autopsy on McNair revealed that he was shot 4 times, twice in the chest and twice in the head.  His death has been ruled a homicide.  The police did not make a ruling on Kazemi's death immediately after the autoposy.
