While the news that Former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair has died has Nashville in a state of shock, NashvillePost.com has gathered new information that sheds a different light on his untimely death.
McNair, 36, and an unnamed woman, were found dead Saturday in downtown Nashville.
The pair died of apparent gunshots wounds and were found in a condominium at 2nd and Lea Avenues in Rutledge Hill. The woman, sources say, was approximately 20 years of age.
While Metro Police has reported that details are sketchy, NashvillePost.com sources say that at approximately 2 a.m. Saturday morning, McNair was celebrating the holidays at the Blue Moon Restaurant near the John C. Tune Airport.
According to the same NashvillePost.com sources, a white woman in her early 20s, around 5-foot-4, approached McNair at the restaurant and accused him of slipping her a “roofie” a year ago.
The woman then told McNair, according to sources, that her boyfriend was going to kill him.
Roofie is a slang term for Rohypnol, a sedative dating back to the early 1970s that is used in hospitals for deep sedation, but is now a fairly infamous date-rape drug.
Multiple sources have confirmed that this information has been shared with the Metro Police Department. Metro Police has yet to identify the dead woman, but is it unknown if the woman at the restaurant is the same woman found in the condo.
Nashville Post.com will update this story as more information comes available.
I get the feeling there's a lot to this story, some of which might paint McNair in an unpleasant picture, but he is the one guy I always liked, and could name that went to Alcorn St. RIP, this has been a brutal period of time for celebrities.
Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.
