Gunpowder found on the hands of Sahel Kazemi

Steve Mcnair update:

Nashville's assistant medical examiner says gunpowder residue was found on the hands of Steve McNair's girlfriend, Sahel Kazemi.

Assistant medical examiner Feng Li said Wednesday the test results make it even more likely that 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi shot McNair and herself, but he stopped short of confirming it was a murder-suicide.

The both were found dead on Saturday, July 4. McNair had been shot four times, while Kazemi had a single gunshot wound to the head. A gun bought two days earlier by Kazemi was found under her body.

Results of ballistics tests on the gun and toxicologies are still pending.

An associate said Wednesday that Mechelle Mcnair, the wife of ex-NFL quarterback Steve McNair didn't know about Sahel Kazemi before the 20-year-old woman was found dead alongside her husband on the Fourth of July.

Mechelle McNair, who has not spoken publicly since the shooting, has been described by people close to her as being very upset and distraught. Agent Bus Cook said McNair's wife was "in and out" of it in the hours after the shooting.

Kazemi's family told reporters that the woman was so confident McNair was divorcing his wife of 12 years that she was preparing to sell her furniture and move in with the former quarterback.

The McNairs married in 1997, and Mechelle is the mother of two of his four sons. She met McNair while both were students at Alcorn State, though she also studied nursing in Nashville and became a nurse while he played for the Titans.

Steve Mcnair and Sahel Kazemi have said to been dating 5 months before they were found dead on July 4.
