Nashville police have confirmed ex-NFL star Steve McNair's girlfriend killed him before shooting herself.

Nashville's assistant medical examiner says gunpowder residue was found on the hands of Sahel Kazemi, who was found dead alongside the slain former NFL star.

The two were found dead Saturday. 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.

    Good "Role Model" for our kids, huh? Maybe we should do investigations on the atheletes beforehand when they speak to our kids. Good Luck on finding one. Most all of them have a shady lifestyle anyway. Money has went to their heads.

    I'm very sad about what happened to Steve McNair. I'm a football fan and he was an outstanding player. But this situation with a young woman on the side while he's married is shameful. If he had not lived his life that way, he would still be around for his four children. I'm not saying he deserved to be killed. I'm just saying he wouldn't have been with her and this wouldn't have happened. Men and women need to take a lesson from this. Live right. It doesn't mean bad things won't happen, but maybe it will stop bad things that didn't have to happen. May God comfort those children and Mrs. McNair.

    This doesnt come as a surprise to many, including myself. I dont condone what Kazemi done but McNair should have used better judgement anyway. McNair was a married man, McNair was SUPPOSE to be a stand-up guy, but he McNair chosen the road to adultry. McNair just isnt the guy the public nor fans thought he was. What a waste!

    Haven't you ever heard "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"? She was the GIRLFRIEND. He had a WIFE AND KIDS. He shouldn't have been cheating on his wife, and she shouldn't have been fooling around with someone else's husband.

    Motive is not the issue. Some people do things in the heat of the moment. They should be looking at the facts and how this horrible tragedy was committed rather than why, because we probably will never know why it happened.
