According to NewsChannel5.com in Nashville, long-time NFL quarterback Steve McNair has been found dead.

McNair reportedly suffered a gunshot wound in an apparent murder-suicide.

Further details currently are not available; check back for more developments.

He was a first-round pick of the Houston Oilers in 1995, and he played for the franchise through the 2005 season. McNair was then traded to the Ravens, and he spent two seasons in Baltimore before retiring.

Listening on sirius,,,,,,they're saying some girl met Mcnair in a restaurant and told him that he slipped her a rupee a year ago and her boyfriend was gonna kill him :evilshake:

Sounds like the boyfriend or x-boyfriend killed them both :dunno:

Sources are also saying Mcnair was shot at 2 a.m. this morning and the woman with him has not been identified yet,,,,,,,This will all surface in a day or two.

Bound to be foul play and it's a shame,,,,,,,,,There's only a few things in this world that a man can take another man or womans life for and sex should "NEVER" be one of them :evilshake:

When i 1st heard this ,,,,,,,,,,,Rupee was not in my imagination :thinking:

First thing that popped in my head was a jealous boyfriend and Mcnair has been a sugar daddy,,,,,,,But who knows i'm waiting for facts :yesnod:

I always respected Steve McNair even when he use to kill the Steelers....He was a Steeler killer.......R.I.P Steve..........I'll never forget when Tommy Maddox was injured in 2002 in Tenn. and was motionless on the field....It was Steve McNair and Eddie George who visited Tommy in the hospital..........Just tragic......

lol.. are you serious?


McNair, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who was married with four children, was found Saturday with multiple gunshot wounds on a sofa in his living room. The woman was killed by a single gunshot wound and a pistol was discovered near her, police said.

I'd like to see how he pulled that off.. must have been a super enhanced offspring of that magical bullet that 'claimed' to kill JFK.

This was absolutely shocking to hear last night. I always respected the way Steve McNair played the game. He was just a stand up person, on and off the football field. My thoughts and prayers go out to both families involved. :pray:

I agree....at first sight it looks more like she killed him than herself.

What a tragedy. My heart goes out to the McNair family and the family of the girl who was also killed. I couldn't believe it when I heard the news yesterday. Like Blitz said, I'm sure all of the details will be forthcoming in a day or two. What a terrible shame!

The past few weeks have been super crazy! Michael Jackson, Billy Mays (from Pittsburgh) and now Steve McNair, dead! The Michael Jackson death was shocking but it was bound to happen after the condition he's been in. When Billy Mays and Steve McNair were found dead it was shocking.

It's terrible that this had to happen to McNair and it's a shame. On the other hand, not to sound like an ******* or anything but had McNair been loyal to his wife and not been cheating and screwing around with this other women who apparently was the one that ended up killing him police are saying now, then maybe McNair would still be alive today...

What motive would the girl friend have to kill him? Did he threaten to break up? It makes no sense. She used to drive a friggin Hyundai or some other piece of **** and he bought he an Escalade. She had a multi millionaire boy friend who even if he was married was giving her things she never had before. So life was good for her in her eyes.

Now on the other hand maybe his wife found out and figure the hell with him, spent $110 G's and had him professionally knocked off and it looks like a murder/ suicide. Now the she get's rid of her cheating husband, the bitch he was cheating with and she get's all his $$$$$ including life insurance. She'll get a 21 year old boyfriend who will be living in Steve's house, sleeping with his wife, drinking his beer and watching his big screen TV!

It will be interesting to see how this pans out.

Most likely he threatened to break up with her. It says in the report that she thought McNair was divorcing his wife and going to marry her. So maybe she asked McNair to leave his wife and marry her and he told her **** you and then she snapped and went boom!!! Maybe this girl was nuts or was one of those girls who was a clinger. It said she was an Arab girl and a lot of those girls have been known to have bad tempers and short fuses. The bottom line is it's a tragedy McNair's life had to end the way it did but still the guy had a beautiful wife and 4 boys and a ton of cash so why go blow it on some 21 year old girl who basically McNair was probably just using for sex and other stuff. Like I said had McNair stayed loyal to his wife and not screwed around with this girl he would still be alive today...

Of course it's true he'd be alive if he didn't screw around. But it will be interesting to find out the real story. I didn't know that she was arab or Arab women had short tempers...but the Latin women generally do, I've seen that first hand! :lol:

Oh yeah, Farrah also.

Billy Mays was a pitchman who did T.V. ads. He did one for ESPN a few months ago.

lets all hope for the family to heal and prosper.....nothing else, NOTHING else, really matters...
This was read at my wife's grandmothers funeral today, it struck a cord in my heart, and allowed me to have some closure with my own mother's passing this Christmas passed,( i wish i had heard it then)

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

-Mary Frye (1932)

Gun powder residue tests have confirmed that his girlfriend was the shooter. Although, most people have already concluded this for themselves days ago after they confirmed she just recently bought the weapon. How tragic is this for his wife and kids? :evilshake:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair's mistress bought the gun she used to kill him from a convicted murderer whose fiancee was afraid to have it in the house, authorities said yesterday.

Adrian J. Gilliam Jr., 33, of La Vergne, Tenn., was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. He admitted selling a 9 mm Bryco/Jennings to Sahel Kazemi for $100, according to court documents.

Kazemi, 20, shot McNair to death at his condo July 4 before killing herself. Authorities say she met Gilliam while she was trying to sell her car and told him she was looking to buy a gun.

A criminal complaint says Gilliam -- who was convicted in 1993 in Florida for murder and attempted armed robbery -- told police he sold the gun to Kazemi, whom he identified from a police photo.

Detectives traced the gun to its 2002 sale at a pawn shop. Gilliam eventually bought it from someone for $100 about a year or year and a half ago. Investigators said he told them he bought it for protection after his home was burglarized, and police reports show a burglary around that time.

Nashville Police Chief Ronal Serpas said at a news conference yesterday that Gilliam decided to sell the gun because his wife was afraid to have it in their house.

Federal public defender Hugh Mundy said Gilliam is not married but is engaged to a woman with whom he has a 2-year-old daughter.

Gilliam has been out of jail for seven years and has had no other trouble with the law in that time, Mundy said.

"No one denies this is a tragedy," he said. "Steve McNair was one of Nashville's heroes. A lot of lives have already been ruined. But Mr. Gilliam is a decent, hardworking family man and there's no reason to ruin his life too."

Police had said last week that Kazemi purchased "a fully loaded 9 mm pistol from a private individual" who met her in the parking lot of the mall where she worked at the Dave & Busters restaurant. That's also where she first met McNair. The sale took place two days before the shooting.

Authorities believe McNair was likely asleep when Kazemi put the pistol to his head and pulled the trigger. She put two more slugs into his chest and a fourth bullet into the other side of his head before shooting herself.

McNair, a married father of four, walked away from the NFL last year. "Air McNair" was known as a gutsy quarterback who played through serious injuries and led his Tennessee Titans to a Super Bowl.

U.S. Attorney Edward Yarbrough said Kazemi's age did not make the sale of the gun illegal. A licensed dealer is barred from selling a gun to someone younger than 21, but private sales to people older than 18 are legal, he said.

Convicted felons, however, cannot have guns. Jim Cavanaugh, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives special agent in charge in Nashville, held up a pistol similar to the one used to kill McNair and said, "A convicted felon cannot receive it, possess it, buy it, store it, hold it, shoot it, aim it, clean it, or do anything with it."

Gilliam faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He was in court yesterday afternoon, but a hearing to set bond was delayed until Wednesday.Talk about hard headed......:banging:
I guess 1 bullet to the head wasn't enough
