Riddled with Bullets in a Murder-Suicide Committed by Your 20-Year-Old Extramarital Girlfriend Who Just Got a DUI: How Not to Have a Cheerful Holiday Weekend

Okay, here’s the requisite Steve McNair update, as if you haven’t already gotten the details 800 times while watching SportsCenter on loop.

The woman found dead with McNair was Sahel Kazemi, a 20-year-old waitress who had been arrested for DUI (with McNair in the car) two days earlier.  McNair’s body was riddled with bullets; she suffered a single gunshot to the head, and police found a pistol nearby.  Police are not looking for any suspects, and conventional wisdom suggests it was murder-suicide.  The two are pictured here in a photo that TMZ claims was taken about three months ago.

None of this is cheerful news, of course, but it’s not like there were going to be new details that would make anyone less dead.  Our best wishes go to the McNairs, the Titans organization, and the NFL family — except Roger Goodell.  That guy’s a dick.
