For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
Remember the story of Steve McNair? NFL Baller who was allegedly the victim of a murder suicide? To catch you up, McNair played for the Tennessee Titans. He was married with children but apparently liked to have women on the side. One of which was a young woman by the name of Sahel Kazemi, whom he met at Dave & Buster's where she worked. He immediately began taking care of her, buying her a car and paying her rent. They were seemingly in love. Things turned sour and Kazemi thought he was going to leave her and according to initial reports, that's when she shot them both on July 4 2009. McNair was found with only $7 in his pocket.
I had forgotten about the story until 2 weeks ago when the Discovery ID channel ran a expose on it, shedding light on a lot of things we weren't privy to knowing before. Namely, the fact that investigators don't really think it's a murder suicide, but they don't want to shame themselves into reopening the case. The show was called "True Crime With Aphrodite Jones".
Besides how the gun was obtained, how McNair ONLY had $7 in his pocket, and how Kazemi's friends say McNair and Kazemi were doing fine, according to the show how McNair's wife behaved afterwards threw up a lot of red flags.
Mechelle McNair was Steve's wife of 12 years and at the time of his murder, she told investigators she had no idea he was carrying on an affair with Kazemi. When McNair died he did not have a will. Well, he was supposed to have a will but no will could be found. All of his assets were then left to his wife. McNair, who built his mother the house she had been living in, had not put the house in his mother's name. When he died, Mechelle asked McNair's mother to start paying $3000/month in rent in order to stay in the home. Unfortunately his mother could not afford that and she was forced to move. Since then, she hasn't spoken to Mechelle or her grand children.
According to the show, Mechelle's strange behavior as well as other small things lead investigators to think that maybe McNair and Kazemi were murdered by a hired killer. The gun was owned by a man who had just gotten out of jail for a murder during a botched robbery attempt and his story of how Kazemi got the gun didn't make sense. If what the show is saying is true, why won't investigators reopen the case? Just because they don't want to look stupid? I think his family deserves more than that.
