On July 4, 2009, McNair and his 20-year-old girlfriend, Sahel Kazemi were found dead in a murder suicide. Nashville police have now released further details, including some pictures, and text messages between the two.
According to reports, Sahel texted the Tennessee quarterback, asking him if he loved her and said,
“I’m gonna have all of u soon.”
“Yes u will,” McNair replied.

Also new, is the revelation that McNair had yet another mistress, Leah Ignagni. While the investigation is still open, it is being considered that Sahel found out about this other woman, and may have been the motivation behind the murder-suicide.
According to reports, Leah told the police that she and Steve were indeed in a relationship. She also said that she noticed a black Escalade, similar to the one that was co-registered both to Sahel and Steve, circling her block and parked outside her apartment a few weeks prior to the murder.
While all of these new details are certainly interesting and help explain more, it seems that Steve’s web just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The football player was leading quite the complicated life.
