STEVE MCNAIR: FALL OF A TITAN
Premieres Oct. 17
On July 4, 2009, retired NFL quarterback Steve McNair was found dead in his Nashville condo, shot four times. His mistress Jenni Kazemi lay dead at his feet, killed by a shot to the head. A four-day investigation by the Nashville police determined that Kazemi had killed McNair before turning the gun on herself. But in SI's new nine-part serialized podcast series, SI staff writer Tim Rohan raises serious questions about the official account. Through conversations with investigators, people close to the victims and a private detective hired by McNair's mother, Fall of a Titan illuminates the story of a mysterious murder.
