Nashville police have released a recording of the emotional 911 call made by Robert Gaddy after he arrived at the crime scene and found the dead bodies of former NFL quarterback Steve McNair and McNair’s girlfriend, Sahel “Jenny” Kazemi.
The case was officially ruled a murder-suicide today with law enforcement officials determining that Kazemi killed McNair by shooting him four times before she committed suicide with a single gunshot to the head.
It’s believed that McNair was asleep when Kazemi shot him.
“I hate to be the one to make this call,” said Gaddy, who was clearly distraught. “It’s so messed up.”
Gaddy was a close friend and former Alcorn State teammate of McNair’s.
Instead of calling 911 when he first discovered the bodies, McNair’s friend, Wayne Neely, phoned Gaddy. Then, Gaddy alerted the police about the grisly situation.
“I received a phone call that there was an injured party inside this apartment,” Gaddy said. “It’s two people.”
Gaddy was asked by the 911 operator if both people were deceased. And he replied, ”I think so, sir. I don’t know how long they’ve been there. It’s a male and a female. It’s so messed up.”
During the 911 call, Gaddy struggled initially to give the correct address for the downtown Nashville condominium.
Gaddy ended the call shortly after police arrived at the scene and began asking him questions.
