It looks like the details of his horrible death are still being pieced together. I am no homicide detective, but it looks like a murder/suicide is the logical conclusion.
1994 seems like just yesterday. That was the first time that I had ever heard of Steve McNair. At the time he was playing QB for little known Alcorn State. I can distinctly remember a commuter plane flight from Atlanta to Montgomery in which I had conversation I had with an NFL scout.
I asked him: "What is the deal with McNair kid. Can he play ?"
The scout smiled and replied "Oh yes. He is going to have a very long NFL career"
Rest in Peace Steve.
