I haven’t had a minute to process this yet but short of a nuclear attack on Hawaii this is about the worst news someone from Tennessee could expect to hear today.
The pair died of apparent gunshots wounds and were found in an apartment near the old General Hospital on Rolling Mill Hill. The woman, sources say, was approximately 20 years of age.
While details are sketchy at this time, NashvillePost.com sources say that the scene could be double homicide, a murder/suicide, or made to look like a murder/suicide. Metro Police said they have identified the woman, but are not releasing her name until the family has been notified.
What’s certain is that the unnamed woman at the scene is not his wife which opens a range of possibilities to the motive but it’s no excuse. If your spouse or girlfriend is cheating on you then get a divorce. If they ruin your life for what they did to you why let them ruin the rest of your life by going to jail over it?
That’s not speculating on what’s happened. No one knows what that is yet. But if the motive was not money then that narrows it down.
Naturally, many of our liberal friends are rushing to comment on this story as an example of how legal gun owners being allowed to carry their weapons into a restaurant is the same thing as someone either breaking in or being invited into McNair’s residence and shooting him dead.
Not quite the point, fellas. The point is that this city has gotten so dangerous under Chief Ronal Serpas’ Reign of Error that we have to maintain the right to defend ourselves. We have a meter maid at police chief who would rather harass people going 6 miles over the speed limit than putting the serious criminals away and no one can dispute that.
It’s a note I’ve been playing for quite some time.
Either way, it’s a sad day for the McNair Family, the city, the state, the sport and I hope they bring the person or people who did this to justice.
UPDATE: Murder suicide. Crazy bitch took a DUI rap two days ago and celebrated having her license being revoked for six months by killing McNair and then herself. How much does six months worth of taxis cost?
The young woman, Sahel Kazemi, was arrested just before 2 a.m. Thursday after an officer spotted her speeding down Broadway. Kazemi was driving a black, 2007 Cadillac Escalade that, according to public records, she owned along with McNair. McNair was in the vehicle at the time Kazemi was pulled over; however, he was not charged with anything and was allowed to leave. He left in a taxi.
The vehicle is registered at the address of McNair’s restaurant on Jefferson Street.
Going to Dave and Busters makes me want to shoot myself too but not enough to take somebody with me.
This incident is enough to give strange a bad name. Remember that when you go home and kiss your wives at night.
Regardless of this marital infidelity, McNair comported himself with grace on and off the field and deserved a better ending than the one served up ice cold by this Opry Mills bimbo.
It’s all over now except for the funeral and the family that has to go on without a father.
Curiouser and curiouser: McNair had a death threat made against him by a woman claiming he slipped her a roofie some time last year and that her boyfriend was going to kill him at the Blue Moon restaurant in Rock Harbor early yesterday morning.
IRONY WATCH: For those people concerned about guns in restaurants, don’t you find it the least bit ironic that McNair was shot by someone who worked at a restaurant? Based on the broad brush you use to paint patrons, maybe people need to protect themselves from the staff.
COINCIDENCE AND ONE LAST QUESTION: The arresting officer from the Kazemi/McNair DUI stop from this last Thursday is the same one who arrested McNair previously for DUI. Talk about a small town. The thing that’s getting me here is that Kazemi admitted she was high at the stop and it is still a crime for someone to be riding with someone that they know to be intoxicated yet no charge was filed against McNair at the time and he was allowed to leave by taxi.
According to the arrest affidavit, Kazemi’s “eyes were bloodshot and watery. She had an obvious odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her breath but denied any consumption.” According to the police report, “She said she was not drunk but high.”
Would that have happened had the officer in question not been browbeaten by McNair’s attorney and a sympathetic judge who also threw out the gun charge as “fruit of the forbidden tree” in that same stop. Indeed, he was suspended following the first arrest. I’d forgotten that McNair had been charged with that exact offense two years ago.
But not this time. Why?
