The release of a new report from the Nashville Police Department has raised questions over the handing of the Steve McNair murder-suicide investigation. As police work on a summary investigation, one television program has pointed out apparent inconsistencies in the investigation.

Investigators concluded that [Sahel] Kazemi, 20, was drowning in debt and despondent over realizations that McNair was dating other women and wasn’t going to leave his wife for her.

Metro police spokesman Don Aaron declined to comment on anything contained in the 14-page report. The CBS report stated that Kazemi had more than $2,500 in the bank, contradicting the police explanation that Kazemi was distraught over money and the unraveling relationship. But text messages between the two suggest that $2,000 of that money came from McNair on the evening before his murder.

The report also included a text-message exchange between McNair and Kazemi from the day before they were found dead in a Nashville-area condo.

Below is the content of text message records police subpoenaed from McNair’s cellphone carrier. The following texts were received by McNair’s phone on July 3. Interviews with friends of McNair’s confirmed that he was actually out at several Nashville bars in the evening hours during this conversation.

This is yet another argument against texting–you can never tell where your significant other actually is. And really, texting is a bit irritating, especially when you press “8” on your cell phone and a “7” shows up. But that’s what I get for showering while trying to text. I can see now why that erotic SMS industry never really took off.
