NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police say things had been "going bad
quickly" in the life of Sahel Kazemi.
They've now concluded that the 20-year-old woman shot and killed
her married boyfriend, former NFL quarterback Steve McNair, last
weekend before taking her own life. The police chief in Nashville
says investigators determined that Kazemi shot McNair four times as
he dozed on a sofa, and then turned the gun on herself.
Chief Ronal Serpas says Kazemi had been
"spinning out of control" in the days before the shooting.
Police say the woman's friends revealed that her finances were a
mess -- she was making payments on two cars, and her rent was
doubling. What's more, she suspected that McNair was involved with
yet another young woman who wasn't his wife.
Police say Kazemi told a friend Friday that she might as well
end her life.
The woman's family tells reporters that she'd been confident
that McNair was divorcing his wife of 12 years to be with her. But
an associate of the McNairs says Mechelle McNair wasn't aware of
the other woman.
