There was another strange and tragic celebrity death as former NFL quarterback Steve McNair was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds. His mistress 20 year-old Sahel Kazemi was also found dead at the Nashville, Tennessee condo. McNair had several bullet wounds, and Kazemi was found with a single shot to the head.

McNair was 36 and played 13 seasons before retiring in April 2008. He was married to Mechelle McNair and they had four sons. A police spokesman said authorities were still investigating the shootings which they are calling a murder-suicide.
Police officers responded at the scene after receiving a call about injured persons inside the condo. When they arrived at the site, they found a man and woman shot to death inside the residence. The condominium is one that McNair was known to frequent, but a police spokeswoman said she didn’t know if he was the owner.
In June, McNair opened a restaurant near the Tennessee State University campus. It was closed Saturday evening, but it had become a small memorial, with flowers, candles and notes placed outside the door.
Our prayers goes out to the family of Steve McNair.
