CNN: McNair Murdered Along With ‘Girlfriend’

UPDATE: The TENNESSEAN reports on the likely female victim found with McNair. 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi was charged with DUI in McNair’s Escalade earlier this week. McNair was reportedly found dead, along with a 20-year-old female.

The same car was towed from the apartment complex where McNair and the woman were discovered today.

UPDATE: Just as I predicted hours ago on Twitter, CNN breaks the McNair story wide open - and not ESPN. CNN reports the 20-year-old woman found dead with the married McNair was his “girlfriend.

UPDATE: WSMV: “Police spokesman Don Aaron said a woman, who was not McNair’s wife Mechelle, was also found dead with McNair. He said police tentatively have identified the woman but did not release her name.”

UPDATE: NASHVILLE POST reports on the person found dead with McNair: “The woman, sources say, was approximately 20 years of age.”

UPDATE: Based on the complete incompetence of the Nashville media reportage of McNair’s death (see below), best at this point to wait out the genuine details as made available by local police.

UPDATE: After initially reporting McNair’s death as a possible “murder/suicide“, WTVF is now referring to it as a “double homicide.”

UPDATE: WSMV in Nashville also reported McNair killed in a murder/suicide. Now, the TV station has apparently backed off that report too.

The NASHVILLE POST continues to report, “the scene was either a murder/suicide or made to look like a murder/suicide.”

More updates and thoughts on my Twitter.

WTVF broke the story with this:

Former Titans quarterback Steve McNair has been killed. Police said McNair suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the head in downtown Nashville.

More from the NASHVILLE POST …

Former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair and a unidentified 20 year old woman have been found dead in downtown Nashville.

They died of apparent gunshots wounds and were found behind a market owned by Metro Trustee Charlie Cardwell, near the old General Hospital on Rolling Mill Hill.

While details are sketchy at this time, sources say that the scene was either a murder/suicide or made to look like a murder/suicide.

McNair is survived by a son, Steve, Jr., a senior in high school.

UPDATE: Nashville police confirm that two bodies were found, not three.
