The woman found shot to death today along with former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair was allegedly McNair’s girlfriend, according to a CNN report that cited an anonymous law enforcement official.
The name of the woman hasn’t been released even though she has been “tentatively identified.”
McNair was discovered dead today in a downtown Nashville condominium, according to police.
Per the report, the condominium belongs to the woman; witnesses claimed that McNair was a “frequent visitor.”
Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron told Tennessee reporters today that no suspect is in custody at this time. Aaron ruled out the scenario of a murder-suicide.
According to the Tennessean, Aaron noted that the woman killed was not McNair’s wife.
Meanwhile, WSMV-TV in Nashville is reporting that the building is owned by Charles Cardwell.
Cardwell told the television station that the unit was rented to a man named Wayne Neeley, but that McNair used the apartment when he was in town.
According to WSMV, the apartment is in close vicinity to McNair’s restaurant, which is named “Gridiron9.”
Cardwell added that he hadn’t seen McNair in about six weeks.
Per the report, two black sport utility vehicles have been towed away from the scene.
