Interesting to note that Nasvhille police have still not confirmed that Sahel Kazemi, the 20-year-old mistress of Steve McNair who was found dead with him on Saturday, was killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Local authorities, after leaning to rule the crime as a murder-suicide, have now seemingly changed their stance on the killings. (Something that comes as zero surprise to me.)

How else can you explain police now telling the TENNESSEAN that an investigation will “take many days of interviews with their families and friends and witnesses who saw the 36-year-old McNair out on the town Friday night before police will rule whether the deaths were a murder-suicide or a double homicide.”
And then there’s this:
It will be weeks before toxicology tests reveal whether either of them had alcohol or drugs in their systems. Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and explosives are tracing the gun’s registration to determine whether it belonged to McNair or someone else. McNair is licensed to carry a handgun in Tennessee.
BALONEY. The police will know the results of those toxicology tests in a couple days. Not to mention the gun registration. The local authorities are sandbagging the timeline to get the media off their back in the case. So we’ll forget about it - and allow them to be more effective in the investigation. And that’s fine by me.
There are just so many details of this case that don’t add up. McNair’s friend not calling police for an hour after discovering the bodies. McNair reportedly having his life threatened at a local bar the night before the killings. McNair’s wife saying she hadn’t seen him in two days. (I’m not accusing her of anything by the way.)

And then there’s Kazemi’s ex-boyfriend Keith Norfleet, who in an interview with the TENNESSEAN, knew intimate details about Kazemi’s relationship with McNair. He also stated that he made a Saturday morning visit to McNair’s condo - but never said why. What the hell?

Last night I posted the rather ominous message on Norfleet’s now-private Myspace account. Perhaps even more interesting though is the since-deleted status message of one of Norfleet’s friends on Myspace, “Jett Jackson“. Jackson’s account has since been deleted, but I saved a screen shot of it. Posted after the jump. Read more…
