Though the objective evidence points toward a conclusion that Sahel Kazemi shot and killed former NFL quarterback Steve McNair and then turned the gun on herself, there’s skepticism regarding the question of whether it was truly a murder-suicide — or whether it was merely made to look like one.
One such skeptic is former Oilers and Titans running back Eddie George, who joined the franchise as a first-round pick one year after McNair was the third overall selection in the draft.
Appearing earlier today on Sirius NFL Radio with Peter King and Bob Papa, George said he hopes that police are very thorough. The 1995 Heisman winner also suggested that, in his mind, it’s not an open-and-shut case.
“It seems like it was too professionally done,” George said.
If it truly was a double murder, then George probably is right — the crime was committed not by a crazed ex-boyfriend or a jealous soon-to-be-ex-wife, but by someone(s) who gets paid good money to kill people.
And there’s reason to at least explore carefully whether anyone else might have perpetrated the crime. A reporter from the Tennessean told King and Papa that 35 minutes passed between the moment the bodies were found and the placement of a call to police.
Something about that doesn’t feel right, and something about the entire situation is making us and plenty of others wonder whether someone is trying to get away with murder.
