McNair Case Ruled Murder-Suicide

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The facts of the Steve McNair case are coming into focus. As was generally understood, his paramour, Sahel Kazemi, shot him. Now we learn that her life was "spinning out of control" and that she shot him in his sleep, then shot herself, intending to fall into his lap but instead rolling off to the floor.

Apparently she was suspicious that he was cheating on her with another woman, news that must come as another jolt to McNair's wife.
