The family of the woman who was found dead with former NFL quarterback Steve McNair has spoken out regarding the situation.
And despite the implicit message from police that 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi shot McNair repeatedly before shooting herself once, Kazemi’s niece says that the girl was not capable of such actions.
“She was one, young girl who had so many dreams that they never came
true,” said Sepidah Salmani, according to Kate Howard of the Tennessean. “She would never kill anyone, ever. Or anything.
Not even a little bug. I want people to know that.”
Salmani, who was raised as Kazemi’s sister, also said that McNair had told Kazemi that he soon would be divorcing his wife.
“That’s why she was like, ‘OK, now you’re divorcing. We can date,'”
Salmani said. “He told her, it was going to be finished, the whole
divorce was going to be done, two weeks from yesterday. . . .
“All she was trying to do was have fun. Nothing else. I believe there is a third person involved.”
Autopsies are being conducted on Sunday, and the findings could go a long way toward determining whether Kazemi indeed shot herself — or whether someone else pulled the trigger and made it look like she committed suicide after killing McNair.
