More Questions Arise Regarding Kazemi's Ex-Boyfriend

In the wake of the shooting death of former Titans and Ravens quarterback Steve McNair, we received from many readers a link to a MySpace page containing comments that apparently were posted before the incident, on July 2, 2009 — and that seemed to indicate that someone planned to kill McNair and his girlfriend, Sahel Kazemi.

The now-deleted account belonged to a person named Jett Jackson, who reportedly is a friend of Kazemi’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, Keith Norfleet.

The entry read as follows:  “F–k Steve McNair and he will be nobody in ’09?”  It also said, “R.I.P. Sahel Kazemi.”

We previously have ignored the information, primarily because we couldn’t reconcile the apparently organized nature of what might be a double murder made to look like a murder-suicide with the clearly disorganized ramblings that had been posted for the world to see.

(It’s the same reason we didn’t — and still don’t — give much credence to the report that a woman accosted McNair at a restaurant on Friday night, claimed that he had given her a “roofie” last year, and vowed that her boyfriend would kill McNair.  Common sense suggests that anyone with the ability to stage a murder-suicide realizes not to threaten to kill the victim of the murder in a public place.)

Per the Nashville City Paper, Jackson has come forward and spoken with police.  Nashville Metro police spokesman Don Aaron said that Jackson posted the statements after learning of the deaths from a handheld device that indicated an incorrect posting date.    

But there are other questions about Norfleet.  Though he has been interviewed extensively by police and he supposedly isn’t considered to be a suspect, he reportedly was with Kazemi in the hours after her Thursday night DUI arrest — and Norfleet possibly was with her when she bought the gun that was found at the scene.

Meanwhile, a rap song created earlier this year by Norfleet has emerged.  Titled “Closed Casket,” it contains lyrics that at a minimum make us suspicious of the man who isn’t a suspect.

Here’s the key verse:

If you ever do it again bitch I’m not rapping
I’m getting a clip and clapping and I’m not laughing
They’re wrapping you up for your little trip to the morgue
While I’m preparing for my trip to the shore,
Don’t ignore me, I’m not lying, I couldn’t be more honest
If you ever do it again, you’ll die, I promise.

The full song is right here.

That said, police repeatedly have said that Norfleet isn’t considered a suspect.

Meanwhile, something about all of this continues to stink to us.

UPDATE:  TacoBill has found Norfleet’s YouTube page.  TacoBill also thinks that police aren’t regarding Norfleet as a suspect because he seems to be way too stupid and incompetent to make a double homicide look like a murder-suicide.  We tend to agree.

    Florio please leave it alone your starting to sound like TMZ ! Packers signed draft choice TJ Lang how about a nice story on that !

    This is not a bullsh-t post , first of all , i have a friend in the west end district of nashville and has proof of Sahel Kazemi being a high-end escort . That is why they are not ruling this a homocide-suicide , because her “other” lifestyle will be shed light on , and maybe she wanted to leave her pimp/madam and he got rid of them both . The one piece of evidence they have to corroborate is Sahel’s blood seems to have clotted faster , whether its because of the body mass compared to McNair’s , but if true it would seemingly be hard to do to be dead and pull a trigger with accuracy to put TWO shots pointe blanc in EACH of his temples . A lover quarrel would not have been such aggression .

    Oh come on, you’re really stretching now Florio…
    I mean who among us HASN’T written a rap song involving the potential murder of an ex-girlfriend and her amorous NFL star?
    Though I suppose we shouldn’t rule anything out.
    Speaking of which, have the authorites ascertained whether a certain Mike Florio has a good alibi?
    We all know he’s no fan of the Eagles and Donovan McNabb. It’s just possible that Mike finally went over the edge confused McNabb and McNair.
    Hey – it’s no less plausible than some of the other conspiracy theories out there.

    I’m genuinely sorry that two people are dead. But I come here for FOOTBALL news. This is scandal sheet crap. McNair wasn’t even an active player. When the Nashville police sort it out, you can give us the final words on the case. In the meantime, some FOOTBALL news would be nice. This is ProFootballTalk.com, not tabloid murder-let’s all play CSI/Law & Order.com. I understand in the world of news the adage “if it bleeds, it leads” holds true. But your NBC connection aside, this ain’t the world of news. It’s supposed to the world of FOOTBALL. How bout you use some of that GE money and get us some football info.

  14. Backinthesaddle says: Jul 7, 2009 7:55 PM

    Mr. Norfleet is trash…his buddy “Jet Jackson” is trash….and it makes think that Ms. Kazemi was trash as well if she was Norfleets boyfriend at one point.
    STEVE!!!!!…..you had a nice wife and 4 beautiful children!!! WTF were you thinking about???!!! R.I.P…….but I have to say you made bad decisions here.

  17. Paul_R. says: Jul 7, 2009 7:58 PM

    Florio isn’t reporting in the Nashville Post, the Tennessean, the Baltimore Sun, or any of the other news papers.
    The Baltimore Sun reports that three shots were from a distance greater than 3 feet and one of those shots went into McNair’s temple. Then, the 4th shot went into his other temple.
    The Nashville Post reports the questions about Norfleet and this “Jett Jackson” and his posting on MySpace. Norfleet’s lyrics are quite jealous and angry. Kazemi was reported as being a very happy girl who was full of life. Her family said that Norfleet and Kazemi had many arguments and broke up frequently. Yet, he is still coming around looking for her.
    Who looks like the insecure person here? Obviously, it’s Norfleet, especially when you add in the “lyrics”.
    Getting back to the shooting of McNair, does it really make any kind of sense that a young girl could be so extremely distraught that she could go out, buy a gun, and then be able to shoot McNair twice in the chest and once in the temple from several feet? She had never owned a gun before. And, there’s no evidence that she had ever shot a gun before. And, there’s no evidence of her being so insecure that she could never let go of her ex-boyfriend.
    But, there seems to be evidence that he couldn’t ever let go of her.

    Please talk about football….we’ll eventually find out what really happened, until then stop stirring the pot and causing controversy….You’re supposed to talk about football rumors, not rumors of former football stars who got murdered.

  20. thecarline says: Jul 7, 2009 8:06 PM

    a lot of the lyrics are straight copied off eminem lyrics.
    that being said, the entire case has a lot of puzzling scenarios playing out at one entire time.
    1. How does a girl who, by many accounts has never really handled a gun, accurately fire 3 shots from a distance of about 3~4 feet. While the distance is relatively short, a handgun doesn’t have the same scope for accurate aiming as a rifle. From what I know, she had a maximum of 5 shot to hit him 3 times (2 in the wall and three in him) plus the point blank one. (If I am off in shots fired or shots that went into wall were fragments please correct)
    2. The time lapse between when the roommate got there and when the police were questioned. I would be interested in any angle with finances and a business partner.
    3. Both the ex boyfriend and his friend appear to have extremely difficult circumstances regarding their behavior. The time stamp on his posting, to my knowledge, only changes if it is in a different time zone. While I understand Myspace has many time stamp problems, to my knowledge time stamps only get assessed when the data is sent in, not when you log in. (If this is off, please someone state the correct process). The message is also off if he knew that she was dead however the name wasn’t released. And the lyrics in the case are very eye raising to say the least. I wouldn’t assume one would be that dumb to assume that messages posted on a social forum wouldn’t get around, but then again…
    This entire scenario has an eerie smell lingering around it. It almost looks too perfect to have been spontaneous. Both individuals dead, gun just bought, potential of a fight, ex-boyfriend has an explanation for prints being on the door, no individuals interrogated have given interviews and a public threat on mcnairs life involving another man…

  28. darrius_heyward-bey-butterfingers says: Jul 7, 2009 8:39 PM

    She was definitely a high class hooker. Check out the CBS blog pics via Deadspin. Good girls definitely never dress like that- I think her family is not a credible source about her character.

  30. screaming sheep says: Jul 7, 2009 8:41 PM

    You know, these comments on NBC are starting to piss me off. Keeps telling me I have to log in, go into a different entry and it has me logged in, come back into the one I want to comment on, and it tells me to log in. After about 6 trys, it will usually let me in. Power to the hampsters, never had this problem with them.
    Anyway, what I wanted to say was, did anyone check for a Jett Jackson Twitter account. If he’s dumb enough to put stuff up on a MySpace, maybe he had a few lines, “yeah, pulling in to do a job at McNairs, back in a few” or some stupid crap like that. Could get 2 more early July posts out of that Florio.
    Damn I’m ready for training camps to open.

  31. blitzed says: Jul 7, 2009 8:41 PM

    hope they follow up on the handheld device posted the wrong date….SURE it did….also thought the ex(Norfleet) had some smart ass comment on his facebook….then all of a sudden both the accounts are deleted….WHY ??….and then the rap song from Norfleet …. all this adds up to “WAY to much of a COINCIDENCE” type of thing

  32. Zaggs says: Jul 7, 2009 8:54 PM

    Yeah, Norfleet had alot of stuff pointing to him and the police in a high profile case just let him go. Sure they did.
    If you have a myspace app on your phone, but your phone has the wrong date, would that not alter the dates of your post?
    Odds are Norfleet has a good alibi for the time of the murders.

    If a 20 year old punk rapper was involved, the trial would be over by now.
    No way he can murder 2 people, leave zero evidence, escape unseen, be questioned by police and NOT be considered a suspect.

    So that means she was on drugs when she killed McNair and herself? So on drugs she went 5-5 with the gun, wow I don’t think even Darryl Strawberry could do that.

  40. Paul_R. says: Jul 7, 2009 9:14 PM

    From the Nashville Post article:
    http://www.nashvillepost.com/news/2009/7/7/who_are_the_other_people_in_the_mcnair_case
    As for the Internet postings, Aaron stated, “the police department is aware of them. We are talking to certain individuals here in this community about them. We are also in contact with some of those Internet companies to ascertain exactly what was posted when, and if we can learn by who. That is not a process that can be done instantaneously and we’re [attempting] to answer those questions.”
    ____________________
    “We are also in contact with some of those Internet companies to ascertain exactly what was posted when, and if we can learn by who.”
    The autopsy report on Kazemi hasn’t been released. For a reason, perhaps? The police cannot just call MySpace.com and say, “We’d like to look at some records, please.” They have to go to a judge and get a subpoena. That’s the legal avenue to acquire records from a private company. MySpace would then give the records in question, including files stored in their computers and on backup files, to the police. It’s a little bit of a process and takes time.
    The police might be thinking that there’s a connection and don’t want to tip off Norfleet and Jackson by releasing information about Kazemi’s autopsy report that might suggest that she was murdered and that the police are looking for a suspect or suspects.
    But, as I stated in my post earlier, Norfleet seems to be the one who has trouble letting go of Kazemi. Her family said that there had been frequent arguments and breakups. She obviously could let go of him to the point where she could date McNair. Norfleet’s the one who’s shown his jealousy and insecurity in a rap song. And, interestingly, that’s also a scenario that’s played out throughout the U.S. many times during the course of a year. Jealous and insecure ex-boyfriends do kill.

  41. Idlespectator says: Jul 7, 2009 9:16 PM

    If the boyfriend was with her when she bought the gun, what did she tell him? Presumably, (according to the script), “I’m gonna git that guy!”
    If so, isn’t the boyfriend an accessory or accomplice?
    Surely the police (assuming they’re honest brokers) asked him why she got the gun. What did he tell them?
    Did he tell them she said she was intending murder? That seems unlikely (see above).
    Probably he told them she was afraid of someone. If that was his story, then the next question was “Who was she afraid of?”
    The obvious answer — the reason there are no other suspects — must have been McNair.
    So what did McNair say or do that would have caused her to feel threatened? From all I know he has no history threatening women. He was a genuinely nice guy.
    Something stinks. Why did the cops let the ex-boyfriend go?
    This all sounds as fishy as Bush’s claims that Saddam had mobile bio-labs preparing anthrax to load aboard drones in order to attack the eastern US seaboard.
    Just saying …

    A bunch whiners in here that need to do what you all advised me to do when I complained about the Brett Favre coverage.
    Skip over this article if it offends you so much.
    I myself agree with Florio this thing stinks and may not be such an open and shut case.
    Keep up the good work Florio!

    ———–
    Very well said. Also well said…the guy who said everyone who calls this an “open-and-shut murder-suicide” will more than likely eat her words.
    I mean, I’m sure this chick was a whore and all and kept piss poor company but to answer your question “where’s the GSR?” “why’s no one telling us?!”….WHY? Because the cops are leaving it open because it doesn’t add up. No way a girl two years out of high school buys a gun and just pumps this guy full of bullets in a fit of rage.
    I mean, to me, the only plausible way that’s true is if this chick had very deep Iranian cultural habits (which looking from the pictures of her in da club, she doesn’t) and it was a mercy/honor killing which Iranian men and women in the homeland and in America are historically known to do when “family” (assuming she thought her and McNair were getting married) bring shame somehow to the name.
    Idk, now I’m rambling. My point is, lay off Florio. Yea, he love’s Favre and White, and it’s annoying, but I’ve come to the conclusion that all the people who go onto message boards and scream “STOP REHASHING THIS STORY!!!!” ..”Quote writing articles about (insert your new pet peeve/guilty pleasure) !!!!) Those are the people that can’t get enough!

    Remember at the crime scene a 20 dollar bill was found taped to a piece of paper that read, “Never Broke.” Could be that evidence? Look at this Kieth guy, first he says the girl came knocking on his door “EARLY” Saturday morning. Then he said that she was thinking about leaving Mcnair for him again. Then you got all these rap songs. Then he was seen at the condo early Saturday morning. Wintess said he was knocking on the door really loud, trying to get in. Then there is him willing to go to the cops on his own. Usually that would suggest gulit.

  46. Mr Football says: Jul 7, 2009 9:45 PM

    Zaggs,
    Most phones automatically set their date from the cell phone provider. You have to purposely change it for it to be wrong because it usually sets it to the correct time zone/time/date, etc. when communicating with the cell network.
    Also, the guy claimed this was sent after the murders were public let he says that “McNair will be nothing in 09′”. That doesn’t sound like something you would say if you hated McNair and knew he was dead already. How about “You got what you deserve”. “You deserved to die you P.O.S.” or something like that. If McNair was already dead at the time he sent that then he was going to be nothing in more then just 2009. I would also check the guy that sold Kazemi the gun to see if he had any relationship at all with Norfleet or his friends.

  47. RI Rich says: Jul 7, 2009 9:49 PM

    I was all in about the murder suicide up until tonight; I wasn’t buying the “she wouldn’t do that” crap that the family was selling us. To me, McNair got what he had coming for screwing around with a 20 year old whack job.
    I mean, the chick bought a gun two days before she whacked him, supposedly. A slam-dunk.
    Tonight though, I read a couple of things that made me stop and re-think this murder-suicide train of thought.
    I’m not a “grassy knoll-conspiracy theorist” kind of guy, but the report says McNair was shot four times; three from a distance, and one up close. All five shots fired hit their marks, including one up close right in McNair’s temple, and the self-inflicted one on the whack-job.
    Now, those last two are no brainers. But as a former MP who has fired handguns several times, I have one question that needs to be looked at:
    How does a 20 year old chick – who just bought the damned gun – become so proficient in just two days that she can hit McNair three out of three times from a distance, even if that distance were as little as five feet? He was hit twice in the torso (granted a larger target, but still, she didn’t get him in the shoulder or the gut!) and once in the melon????
    I have to tell you, for someone who just bought a gun, that chick was a straight-on marksman., hitting three out of three right in the kill-zone.
    Does that make anyone else stop and wonder?

    Ok, why did I miss this?
    http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/ravens/bal-md.sp.mcnairjul07,0,6421648.story
    “An autopsy determined that McNair, 36, was shot three times from more than three feet away and once in the temple at close range, according to the Tennessean newspaper. Kazemi was shot once in the forehead, with the semiautomatic gun ending up beneath her body.”
    _________________________
    “Kazemi was shot once in the forehead, with the semiautomatic gun ending up beneath her body.”
    In the forehead? That’s really a strange way for someone to kill herself. It’s not as easy to put the gun in front of your face, bend your wrist so that the gun is pointing into your forehead, and then pull the trigger. It’s very easy for someone standing in front of you to do it, though. Think about it. Pretend there’s a pistol in your hand and “point” it into your forehead.

    Wait that news paper says she was shot in the “Forehead” when the Tennessean says she was shot in the side of the head with the pistol touching her skin? I believe the balitmore one is incorrect. It was to the side of the head.

  53. Mad Dog says: Jul 7, 2009 10:19 PM

    Remember when the linebacker from San Diego got shot by an off duty cop after leading police through a very high speed chase for a long period of time. He had a Five Felon warrant passenger with him and after he tried to run the cop down, he was shot 5 times. Well Florio concocted this vast organized conspiracy theory where two or three police departments secretly decided to set up the player and create this chase scenario where they could shoot the guy and make it a good shooting. Florio went on and on about this theory that he had conjured up. So look for this pinhead to create another conspiracy and will do so without having one ounce of info from the investigation. The theories of Mike Florio. It doesn’t get any more stupid.

  54. VoxVeritas says: Jul 7, 2009 10:25 PM

    “Is this rap from that dude on the Cowboys?”
    Eagirls fans need reading comprehension classes. Your answer is in Florio’s article. To wit:
    “Meanwhile, a rap song created earlier this year by Norfleet has emerged. ”
    So no, the second string Cowboys guy that’s better than any Eagirls TE since Keith Jackson is not the author.

    Does she have gun powder residue on her hands? We need the answer to this question!!!!!!!!!!
    ————————–
    If there was a 3rd party, all they’d have to do is have the dead body of Sahel “shoot” a round into McNair (probably at close range for accuracy)
    Hey Einstein: The powder residue pattern on her hands would be completely different, and very incriminating, if another hand was pulling the trigger..you big dummy

    False. There is no “powder residue pattern.”

  56. Bob Sacamano says: Jul 7, 2009 10:27 PM

    This has reached 9/11 conspiracy levels.
    The girl’s ex-boyfriend and his friend are such brilliant criminals that they were able to mastermind a double-murder that have the police totally fooled.
    Yet at the same time, they’re dumb enough to make Myspace posts about how the girl was dead prior to the murders.
    They are brilliant criminal masterminds, but we only know because of how dumb they are.
    Conspiracy Theories 101: when the first element of the theory cancels out the second element, it’s time to get a new theory.

    Thank you Florio, for keeping the investigators on their toes.
    I keep thinking about those boys he left behind, and the effect this will have on their lives. They, at the very least, need to know who pulled the trigger, and by all accounts you seem to be advancing this investigation based on fact.

    Titans1000 says: And they already debunked that she was a escort.
    They have not “debunked” the escort thoughts , as there is several links to a madam off of 8th and summer place , so do not think because you are a titans fan you know the deal around here . I can gaurantee you that this is a double murder for leaving a bond with the bidniz .

  63. mskrs says: Jul 7, 2009 11:09 PM

    I was on “Jett Jackson’s” Myspace page before it was deleted (even then, it was set to private), and the complete quote was more like, “The Caucasian Persuasion riden with Keith. F–k a quarterback – who is Steve McNair in ’09? RIP Sahel Kazemi.” (Jett Jackson called himself “The Caucasian Persuasion” on his Myspace page.)
    But maybe you were trying to “translate” his street-talk for the “mainstream” – distill it down to what this guy actually meant…
    His mood was set to “Hurtin’ for my nig” (with a grinning smiley at the end of this phrase). I got a different meaning from this than others did: other people thought he was calling McNair the n-word – it sounded more to me like he was a (wannabe) gangsta expressing empathy for his “nig” Keith. (Yeah – some white guys consider themselves – or are considered by others – as “honorary nigs”. Eminem anyone?) Who really knows with this nut-job though?

  64. RaiderHeisman says: Jul 7, 2009 11:20 PM

    Pretty credible story forming…. ex boyfriend convinces Kazemi to purchase a gun for him under her name. Probably not the first time he’s manipulated her… She obliges, not knowing any better.
    Ex hides out in condo and waits for them to pass out so he can do them in their sleep…. like a true coward. No signs of struggle. 3 shots from a distance into the torso to make sure he doesn’t miss. She never awakens…. shot to the head… rolls her over…. plants gun.
    Far fetched? I don’t think so.

  65. lasher1674 says: Jul 7, 2009 11:21 PM

    For PFT novices, please understand that Florio – until recently – was a practicing attorney. I trust his instincts on this type of thing. Something stinks here and if it was so “open and shut” the thing would be shut by now. Trust in the fact that police would relish the opportunity to close such a case quickly – their inability to do so coupled with the cost and chaos associated with such high profile cases are strong indicators that there is more to the story than a “simple” murder/suicide.
    I am not wanting to speculate on such a tragedy, but my gut says there is something going on with the ex-boyfriend here.
    For those of you who continue to post about Florio covering the story in a TMZ-type fashion and not talking hardcore football – there are other sites out there for you, utilize those sites to satiate your meatheaded, grindy football fix. Florio has, and hopefully will continue, to shed light on many aspects of the NFL and stories that are tangential to the NFL. Or simply skip past the story and read the next story that you consider relevant. It takes longer to comment on this story than it would to simply skip it.

    this whole thing stinks… It stinks as bad as lord favres breath after eating a plate full of crawfish down there in missississippippi…
    When you look at this jett jacksons myspace page, the last login was 7/2/09… And the header on his page had a rip sahel kazemi on it… ok… Sure, possibly his phone could have put the wrong date on there… Sure, it’s thin… Very thin… but it could have… But are you tellin me that myspace is just going to allow him to be online on july 3rd, or july 4th from his apartment or house, or friends house or whatever, and use their computer, and be on myspace and have the CORRECT date shown as last login… And then he uses his phone on july 5th or 6th… or whenever it was that he “found out” about this tragedy, and then it will automatically “back-date” to july 2nd?….. come on.. that’s thin! real thin!…. I don’t believe it one bit… Just lookin at his pic, and the way he talks on his myspace… he just sounds like what i dumped off in the john twice today… I don’t trust him, and this whole thing in my mind is pointing to him being the trigger man… He even looks like the gangster wannabe type that would have carried a gun numerous times in his life, and would possibly be skilled in shooting it. And has probably threatened people with one in his past… He’s the kind of pos that i used to pick on in school, and make his life hell.. He’s the kind of guy that took it back then, and now he’s out to prove he’s a big man and is going to show you by pulling the trigger… I just don’t trust him… I think he’s the one that tragically took 2 lives here…

Don’t sit and complain about Florio writing about favre, or about mcnair alot… IT’S NEWS, get over it!

    He also runs a gossip website. Open and shut doesn’t drive visitors. What kind of law did he practice?

  70. footballnonsense says: Jul 8, 2009 12:22 AM

    The more and more i read here… It really stinks…
    This norfleet guy… her off again and on again ex boyfriend from the past is the person she purchased the gun from? That’s odd…. And awful easy for him to come up with alibi why his prints were on there then. Which stinks.. This whole myspace thing stinks. This Jett jackoff guy stinks… And the shot placement, and accuracy stinks…
    I’m sorry, but shooting a pistol is different than a shotgun or rifle… The amount of “kick” in the wrist is enough to throw a novice shooter, or rookie, or beginner way off as far as aim and accuracy. I’ve been shooting guns for 30+ years, and i know that you can’t just grab a pistol, shoot it, and be accurate. As the shell leaves the barrel of the pistol, it will force the pistol up… and if you aren’t a skilled shooter, or have had plenty of practice, then there’s no way your going to put 2 in the chest, and in the temple, and walk up to him, turn his head, and one in the other temple, execution style… NO WAY!
    This whole 2 in the chest type thing sounds like a gangster thing. and so does walking up to him, layin on the floor, dead… and turning his head, and puttin lead in the other side.. And then turning to her, and putting one square between the eyes.. That’s total gangster, or flat out psychotic killings. And right now, those cops investigating this thing, they outta be on norfleets butt, and jacksons butt like white on rice…
    Things just aren’t adding up for this to be a murder-suicide.. This is more of a pissed off ex-boyfriend being jealous, and saying… “if i can’t have her, there’s no way some professional athlete can either”…. It’s a sad situation. But the worst part here is, McNair shouldn’t have been screwing around on his wife. and now his childeren have to grow up without their father around. This is the worst part… You have to feel for his family right now. His wife, and childeren probably never knew about what was going on, and now they are left without him..

  71. tnsmoke says: Jul 8, 2009 12:37 AM

    I am glad the Nashville Police did not make a fast decision to just call the case a murder/suicide. They are playing their cards close to their check and not revealing a lot of info that only the killer would know. There have been no reports stating how Steve or the girl were dressed, if the tv was on, what they were doing when killed. The cops can take their time and get all their facts in order and build a case, even if it’s just a cicumstantial one against the ex-boyfriend. By all accounts the girl was telling family and friends she was happy with Steve and he was going to marry her, but that doesn’t mean Steve told her that, she could have made that part up to make their relationship sound more solid then it was. The level of violence imparted on Steve doesn’t add up if the girl was happy as her friends say she was. The ex boyfriend was not happy and there are even questions about the cop who stopped her and Steve for the DUI on Thursday. He got a big career slap from his other encounters with Steve and might have been holding a grudge. Many a rogue cop has thought he could pull off a perfect murder..
    Keep up the coverage Florio.

    Haven’t I seen Keith Norfleet on Springer??

  73. Mute617 says: Jul 8, 2009 1:14 AM

    Hmm, seems like he ripped off Eminem. Same beat and opening lyrics as “Nail in the Coffin”. (who knows, Eminem probably stole the beat too, but still.) How are you supposed to be the “finest” of anything if you can’t even make a simple beat to go with yours (and someone elses) lyrics? Plus he sounds flat and bored. There is no color in his voice. If the rapping wasn’t bad enough, how about that attempt to sing. Maybe he should try to find a real job because he can’t write lyrics, can’t make beats and can’t rap, or sing. Give it up dude.

  74. PJW says: Jul 8, 2009 1:54 AM

    A bullet to the head would send her body in one direction and the recoil (even from a .22) would send the gun in the other direction.
    The only way the gun could end up underneath her is if it or her bounced off something like a wall or table. Most likely the gun would have had to hit a wall to end up like that.

  75. Houston-boy says: Jul 8, 2009 2:10 AM

    According to Police, Kazemi bought the hand gun from another person, not from a reputable gun dealer. Without a traceable paper-work, this transaction is, at least, very questionable, and may never had happenned. She is dead now, and anyone can testify without fear of perjury.

  76. TBTrojan says: Jul 8, 2009 2:35 AM

    We previously have ignored the information, primarily because we couldn’t reconcile the apparently organized nature of what might be a double murder made to look like a murder-suicide with the clearly disorganized ramblings that had been posted for the world to see.
    Thing is you could reconcile any real evidence that she killed McNair either but it didn;t stop you accusing her to the point of it being unhealthy. Seems you are trying to play down thistoo because it doesn;t fit with your opinion/agenda (Lord knows why you would have an agenda on such a thing but it seems you do).

    Regardless of what time and date may be set on a cell phone, MySpace isn’t going to record the date of the accessing device as the “last logged in” date. That’s set by their internal computers. If a person creates an account with MySpace, part of the set up is the “time zone” of the person’s choice. After that, MySpace takes over regarding date and time a person logs in to their account.
    So, this Jett Jackson could not log in on July 4th and somehow MySpace records it as July 2nd.
    Two “gangsta-wannabe’s” will likely soon get the true gangster experience when law enforcement arrests them on two counts of premeditated first-degree murder. Each.

  80. godfather says: Jul 8, 2009 10:06 AM

    Clearly not everyone on here is provided will all the information, or they do not wish to seek it out.
    Time and time again people are claiming she hit him with every shot and she couldnt be that accurate but that is not the case. She missed twice and two holes were found in the wall behind the couch. She went 3 for 5 from a distance of a few feet away. She then put one into his temple at point blank that caused the most damage.
    People keep claiming that a silencer explains the no gunshots heard part but forget that it was the 4th of July and that use of a silencer is easily detectable in many ways.
    Everyone’s up in arms about the Myspace posting without understanding how the time stamping and profile updating of that site works. This has been explained already yet many choose not to believe it.
    Why the craving for an alternate explaination and not wanting to believe the facts of the case? I can understand this craving in other arenas like the Kennedy Assassination and the Moon Landings, since there are obvious agendas at work there, but why here? Is it just human nature or is it TV shows that make us want some ficticious and sensationalized ending to every story? Are people afraid to believe that some 100lb 20yr old nut job could have bought a gun, learned to use it, and then killed a great and highly regarded football player? Someone explain this to me….

    Yeah, Norfleet had alot of stuff pointing to him and the police in a high profile case just let him go. Sure they did.
    If you have a myspace app on your phone, but your phone has the wrong date, would that not alter the dates of your post?
    Odds are Norfleet has a good alibi for the time of the murders.
    _________________________
    No, that wouldn’t change a date in MySpace’s computers. They do not obtain the date and time from the sending device. Their own computer clock records the date and time. The only control an account holder has is selecting the time-zone where they are located so that MySpace can adjust the time to their local time.

  84. SteelerNation says: Jul 8, 2009 11:04 AM

    The cached version of norfleets myspace page reads “never let anyone or anything come in between you and the one you love because when you do you lose everything”

    What “Jett Jackson” told police about using a mobile device as explanation for the time difference is an ABSOLUTE LIE.
    I am a software programmer. The time on your computer screen/phone is NEVER used for database storage. A system like Myspace that has millions of users sharing a database will use the centralized time ON THE SERVER for all timestamps.
    And how smart do you really have to be to fake a murder-suicide and have the entire population question be suspicious. Even if this girl was pissed and high out of her mind, she would have freaked out after firing the first shot.

    some of these young punks now days are so cocky, and they think they can execute the perfect crime and get away with it. last year a neighbor kid vandalized his own car after he was upset that i had put a sign in my front yard which said “slow down a-hole!!!” since this same kid was a continual speeder. i saw him take a photo of my sign with his phone camera. then the next day he filed a false police report saying that i had vandalized his trashed bmw car since he had scrawled a similar “slow down a-hole” on his own car in his attempt to frame me. i am sure he filed an insurance claim to try to get a new paint job, as well as frame me for a crime. the cops did not pursue charging me when i told them my side of the story, and that i would love to defend myself against this dirt bag who thought he was a criminal genius.
