I agree with proud2Bblack totally! I wondered about the ex after reading statements he was making right after it happened.

This is still really bugging me. Hope they figure it out soon.

Well, this is unfortunate because two people died here. But . . . . like they say-If you play, you gotta pay. If he would have been faithful to his marriage, then maybe he would still be alive today. The grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence. In this case, it's dead! Sad, but true! People will never learn from things like this though and that is what makes this crazy old world go around. So sad-especially for the guys kids!!

Curious about the origins and meanings of the name Sahel, so I googled it.

In Arabic it actually means EASY.......how friggen ironic is that. She certainly was easy when it came to men.

Interesting information people have posted here which does shed some light to some possibillities. Without some of the information, it would be easier to think of how she may have done this, but I'm not so sure now. I'm more inclined to believe someone pulled her strings and lead her and McNair into a setup. If it's true that the ex-boyfriend was there at any time, after 4 years, I would say there is plenty of reason to think of a motive there. McNair might have been reevaluating things, but he sure had allot invested in her. Coownership of the vehicle. I'm sorry, just don't think she did it, don't think there is sufficient motive for her to have done it, sounds like she was still playing with the ex. McNair's wife also could have been ticked, but I doubt I would point the finger her way either. Anyway that's my take, hope the police figure it out.

Wake up call    

I would like to extend my prayers to both families in their time of sorrow. Not to take any of the blame off of the young lady but she was young, vunerable, and naive. Steve McNair should have know better than to cheat on his wife and play with the emotions of a child. He dangled the carrot in front of her knowning his intents were not honorable. Now he has paid the ultimate price, he's dead, she's dead, he's humiliated his wife and children. He could not possibly tell anyone that he loved his family. He made a vow in front of family, friends, and God that he didn't honor. That's not thecharacter of a good man, I hope others look at this as a learning lesson and if you make a commitment honor it or end it before someone else is hurt or worse -- DEAD.

Who sold her the gun? There is a reason that state's have laws requiring waiting periods before taking possession of a weapon. How long is the waiting period in Tennessee? The person that sold her the gun is an accessory to this crime. I hope that the person who sold the gun is brought to justice.

TRUTH    

THE EX-BOYFRIEND FELT LIKE IF HE CANT HAVE HER NO ONE CAN. THE WIFE WAS JEALOUS AND PUT OUT WELL PLANNED HIT ON MCNAIR. THE FAMILY OF KAEZEMI DIDN'T APPROVE OF THIS RELATIONSHIP. ONE OF MCNAIRS FRIENDS COULD'VE DONE IT.

MCNAIR TOLD THE GIRL TO GET A GUN FOR PROTECTION BECAUSE THEY WERE SEEN IN PUBLIC. SHE WAS STILL TALKING TO HER "EX-BOYFRIEND" HE WAS ONLY THE EX WHEN MCNAIR CAME IN THE PICTURE.

THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT HAPPEND IS MCNAIR AND KAEZIMI AND THE EX, IT WAS A PERFECT HIT

This is a good example of why CSI isn't filmed in Tennessee ... incompetent police investigators.

McNAIR AND THIRD PERSON LEAVE SCENE IN TAXI WHILE 20-YR-OLD SAHEL KAZEMI SITS ALONE IN BACK OF SQUAD CAR

Did she have to actually call him hours later to come bail her out of jail? Was she so angered that she went and bought a gun later that day and plan his murder? Was McNair so worried about negative publicity and his cover being blown at home that he left her stranded? Had he and his other friend been drinking, and that’s why they couldn’t just drive the Escalade away from the scene when she was detained? Was Steve McNair once again guilty of convincing someone under the influence to do the driving for him so that he wouldn’t be the one behind the wheel if they should get stopped? Do the wonderful accolades he is receiving for being a classy guy need to be questioned? Do you treat a young lady that way? And if she’s mentally unstable and easily angered, and having had problems in the past, which they did, this could have been the last straw for her? Why didn’t he or his other friend take the taxi to the police station to bail her out of jail as soon as possible instead of leaving her there to fester? A lot of questions need to be answered. Still…..

The sad part about all of this is that non of the men will get the message that YES women can hurt you. Yes, you are a big strong man, but the gun "the devil's right hand" is the great equalizer.
