Longtime readers of MSF know that I often link out to Robert Littal at Black Sports Online. There are a few reasons for this:
- His content is almost always interesting and compelling;
- He’s not afraid to speak his mind and back it up;
- Even white guys can dream, can’t we?
The first two reasons are obviously the most important, and what makes BSO one of my favorite sports blogs, and Robert certainly did not disappoint today.
If you’ve been following the sad story of Steve McNair’s murder, you know that the Nashville police recently determined and announced that it was a murder-suicide. Yet, I’ve read many posts by other bloggers that have communicated unease with this conclusion, with most of the lingering questions centering on the ex-boyfriend of the now deceased girlfriend of McNair who was implicated by Nashville PD as the lone shooter the morning she and McNair died.
And today, Robert posted the most expository and logical of all of the posts that have taken issue with the Nashville PD’s announcement.
I don’t know enough about the case to pass judgment one way or another with any semblance of authority, and in truth Robert does not pass specific judgment either. But he does raise a number of interesting questions, and has his own set of sources to make the questions legitimate. He’s been at the forefront of blogger coverage of the McNair shooting, and I applaud him for continuing to dig for information and for posting his honest thoughts about the case.
I’ll let his post speak for itself now. Excerpt and link below. Go there and read the post. As C&C Music Factory once said, things that make you go hmm…
Who Really Murdered Steve McNair? I’ve Broken The Case — (Black Sports Online)
I wasn’t in the room when McNair and Miss Kazemi was murdered so I can never say 100% I know who did it. That would be irresponsible but I do know this:
Mr. Norfleet is a very disgruntled ex. Mr. Norfleet was in the middle of the DUI arrest and was the last person to see Miss Kazemi before she decided to buy a gun. Mr. Norfleet hated Steve McNair. Mr. Norfleet tries to expose the relationship to the media. Mr. Norfleet has violent tendencies. Mr. Norfleet wrote a song describing the murder of his ex and her lover. Mr. Norfleet knew Miss Kazemi was selling her furniture to plan to move in with McNair. Mr. Norfleet on the night of the murder states Miss Kazemi came to see him, but he didn’t answer the door. Mr. Norfleet had a key to her Condo.LASTLY MR. NORFLEET HAS NO ALIBI THAT ANYONE CAN CONFIRM.
