Steve McNair Found Dead

Jul 4, 2009

The 4th of July is typically a wonderful occasion for American families.  BBQs, boating, celebrating with family and friends, etc.  That wasn’t the case for Steve McNair, as he joins an outstanding number of recent celebrity deaths.  McNair, 36, was found dead in a Nashville condo, along with an unidentified woman.  The cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head. 

Air McNair had a brilliant NFL career throwing for 31,304 yard and 174 TDs.  He was a co-MVP, a four-time Pro Bowler, and a half-yard from being a Super Bowl MVP.

Details are not completely available at this time.  My heart goes out to the McNair family and the family of the unidentified victim.

    I couldn’t believe it when the news came out either. Senseless violence indeed. My heart goes to both the McNair family and the unidentified victim, too.

    She was identified as his 20-year old girlfriend. Sounded like murder-suicide as he was shot twice and she was shot once with the gun near her.

    Horrible. Just horrible.
