Nashville Police investigating the shooting deaths of former NFL quarterback Steve McNair and his girlfriend Sahel Kazemi held a press conference last night in which officials described their investigation of events leading up to the killings.

The two were found dead on Saturday, July 4. Here is what police believe happened prior to that, along with the holes they are trying to fill:

  • Sahel Kazemi was pulled over for DUI Thursday morning between 1-1:30 a.m. Steve McNair was a passenger but was allowed to leave the scene via taxi with another person. Kazemi admitted to being high at the time.
  • Thursday night, Sahel Kazemi purchased a semi-automatic pistol. Police will not say who she got it from, but they think this gun killed McNair.
  • Early Saturday morning, McNair met Kazemi at his Nashville condo.
  • At 1:30 p.m. Saturday, a 911 call was made alerting police of the shootings. Police believe the bodies were actually discovered before 1 p.m., and are "concerned" about the time lapse they believe occurred.

Police have stated that Steve McNair was murdered. They are still waiting for ballistics tests and gunshot residue reports to classify Sahel Kazemi's death.

Steve McNair was married to wife Mechelle since 1997, and it is looking like his affair with the 20-year-old Kazemi was not revealed until their deaths.

Their home was listed for sale while he was having an affair, prompting rumors that he was getting a divorce, but he and his wife were just moving.

McNair's realtor said Steve and Mechelle listed their Nashville mansion and were looking to buy another place near a lake. No sign of marital problems or splitting up. The home was set to be sold for $2.9 million, and is still for sale.

Kazemi reportedly told friends that she loved and wanted to marry Steve.

Former Three's Company star Joyce DeWitt recently found herself popped for DUI, landing the 60-year-old in jail and in our famed celebrity mug shots gallery!

Law enforcement sources in El Segundo, Calif., say DeWitt drove past a barricade July 4 - and when a police officer approached her, she smelled like booze.

The actress proceeded to fail field sobriety tests and get arrested for suspicion of DUI.

Joyce DeWitt was freed on $5,000 bail, but not before this instant classic was taken:

Britney Spears revives her role as the new Candie's pitchwoman with a new set of sexy, albeit slightly strange and heavily-airbrushed ads for the brand.

Between this and her new Radar music video, we are starting to think Britney Spears has a bit of a horse fetish going on. Wonder what that's all about...

What this is supposed to make you want to buy is anyone's guess. Either way, Britney Spears sure is looking good these days. Retouching really does wonders!

Britney recently took over for Hayden Panettiere as the face of the clothing line for 'tweens and teens, which is only available at Kohl's department stores.

These clothes may help girls everywhere send age-inappropriate sexy signals, but at least Bristol Palin is the new Candie's Foundation's "ambassador" to "raise awareness" about teen pregnancy, so that's sure to balance things out nicely.

Whether she is accompanying her husband on official business to Moscow, Russia, or just walking across the White House lawn with daughters Malia and Sasha and dog Bo, Michelle Obama's fashion sense always seems so spot-on.

Here's the First Lady and her husband boarding a presidential aircraft:

Don't you just love her outfits?

Today at 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. EST), the Staples Center in Los Angeles will be packed with thousands of people for Michael Jackson's memorial service.

An all-star lineup will be on hand to perform and honor the music icon. Ex-wife Debbie Rowe will be a no-show, though. As will one of his best friends.

Yesterday afternoon, Elizabeth Taylor, 77, Tweeted that she wants nothing to do with this "whoopla." She feels her grief is private and "between us."

More importantly, though, who knew Elizabeth Taylor Twittered?

It makes perfect sense that the acclaimed actress is not going, as the big I memorial is more for Michael's fans, and for his true friends who knew him well and are truly grieving (i.e. not Miley Cyrus), it probably seems a bit over the top.

We'll see how bad it actually becomes. If the "public whoopla" involves a red carpet and a celebrity fashion analysis on Extra tonight, the apocalypse is near.

U.S. Congressman Peter King, who railed against Michael Jackson over the weekend, calling him a pedophile and child molester, isn't done yet.

In fact, the Long Island Republican apparently has much more to say about the late music star, of whom he is not a huge fan, to put it mildly.

After criticizing society for revering MJ's legacy and not paying tribute to our troops, police and firefighters (as if the two are in any way mutually exclusive), Peter King described the media coverage of Jackson "an orgy of glorification."

King swears he won't speak out against Jackson today - out of respect for the star's memorial service - but he told New York's CBS 2 last night:

"Yes, he did violate young boys. He did put them in terribly inappropriate positions. And that's a terrible signal to be sending out to society that we are condoning that type of behavior, and you are condoning when you give him this kind of regal coverage, with millions of people fighting to get to his memorial. This is just wrong."

Is Peter King going too far?

Nashville police investigating the murder of former NFL quarterback Steve McNair now think the gun used to slay him belonged to Sahel Kazemi.

That would be the 20-year-old woman McNair was having an affair with.

McNair was found shot four times - twice in the head and twice in the body - in a fatal, mysterious incident at a Nashville condo early Saturday.

Sahel Kazemi suffered a single, fatal gunshot to the head.

Don Aaron, a Nashville police spokesman said this afternoon, "We believe the pistol recovered from the apartment was purchased by Kazemi."

Cops were told Kazemi and McNair "had been in a dating relationship," even though McNair was married to his wife Mechelle and has four kids.

The gun in question was found underneath Kazemi's body - the police think murder-suicide is a possibility, but have yet to say anything official.

While her death was the first time some people close to McNair even heard of Sahel Kazemi, she told her family she wanted to marry McNair.

Debbie Rowe has been totally out of the spotlight ever since she stood up for Michael Jackson at his child molestation trial in 2005 (a glossed-over part of the late star's past that was brought up by U.S. Rep. Peter King today).

How uncomfortable she is being back in it shows.

After first saying she would attend Jackson's memorial service Tuesday at the Staples Center in L.A., Rowe abruptly pulled out of the invite-only event.

Her attorney, Marta Almli, said, "The onslaught of media attention has made it clear her attendance would be a distraction at an event that should focus exclusively on Michael's legacy. Debbie will continue to celebrate Michael's memory privately."

Part of what changed her mind? An altercation with celebrity news photographers Sunday. Emerging from a Chinese restaurant near her house, Rowe yelled at the paparazzi: "You ready to get your butt kicked? Don't f*%king touch me."

Debbie Rowe Flips Out

GETTING INTO A ROWE: Debbie is far from pleased.

Debbie Rowe is the mother (supposedly) of his two eldest children, Prince, 12, and Paris, 11. The mother of Jackson's third child, Prince II (Blanket), 7, is unknown.

Last week, Rowe said she wants custody of the kids, though her attorney the said later that she "has not reached a final decision concerning custody proceedings."

Amid reports that she is not a biological parent of the children - nor is Jackson - Rowe told NBC that she is willing to submit to DNA testing to prove maternity.

A guardianship hearing has been postponed until July 13 at the request of attorneys for Rowe and Katherine Jackson, who remains their temporary guardian.
