Two found shot to death in Nashville, TN condo.

Double homicide or murder/suicide?

Damn. What is going on?

Reports say the bodies of Steve McNair and a woman identified as his girlfriend, Sahel Kazemi, 20, were found earlier today in a Nashville, TN condo around 1 pm local time. Sources say the bodies were found by McNair friend and body guard Wayne Neeley. Neeley then called his friend Robert Gaddy who made the 911 call. McNair was shot multiple times…including once in the head. She was shot once in the head. There was a pistol found near her body. Officials haven’t determined if the shooting happened late last night or early this morning. McNair did so much for the city on and off the field and just opened a restaurant. The third pick out of Alcorn State played 13 seasons in the NFL for the Houston Oilers, Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens. He was a three time pro bowler and was Co-MVP with Peyton Manning in 2003. He was a player I personally connected with because he left his soul on the field win or lose. He played hurt, banged up and bruised his entire career. He was a true leader on the field. How many games did you watch of him leading a team down going into the fourth to victory? The 2001 Super Bowl was one of the most exciting games I have ever seen. What a finish!
