Internet Posts Brings Twist To McNair Murder

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Another twist in Steve McNair's murder and Sahel Kazemi's death is an Internet posting that has a lot of people talking and police investigating.

Over the past few days, cryptic references and threatening statements have surfaced on the website ‘MySpace' regarding the case many involving Kazemi's ex-boyfriend, Keith Norfleet.

Norfleet and his friends are not suspects, but they are at the center of an online controversy. 

A MySpace page said to belong to someone named Jett Jackson, though we are told by friends that that is not the author's real name, posted a comment on his page.

The page said it was last updated on July 2, two days before the murder. The post said in part, ‘Who is McNair in 09? RIP Sahel Kazemi.'

"It was posted after - the night of that night - it was not July 2," said Norfleet's friend Julian Bucio.  "I think it was the night of the 4th [July]."

Friends of Norfleet recently dismissed the speculation and said the update was made by a cell phone, which explained the unchanged login date.

Norfleet, an amateur rapper, has lost love as a recurring theme in his music. Among Norfleet's friends, there is no lost love for McNair as shown by posts bashing the former Titans Quarterback.

"It's kind of being made like she was such a bad person by people and Steve McNair was just great. In his life, he really was not as great as people make him out to be," said Bucio.

A post from Antonio Watson, another of Norfleet's friends, threatens violence on the horizon. The time was stamped one minute before the 911 call reporting McNair and Kazemi's deaths.

"Yeah I guess that was just basically a really random coincidence," said Watson. "That was a coincidence I did a poem about that in high school."

Metro police said they were working with MySpace to figure out if the post was really posted two days before the murder.

"As far as the internet postings, the police department is aware of them. We're talking to certain individuals in this community about them and we're also in contact with some of those internet companies about what was posted, when and by who," said Metro police spokesman Don Aaron.

Metro police have interviewed Norfleet and his friends about the MySpace postings. Neither Norfleet nor his friends are considered suspects in the case.

Friends said that Norfleet has left Tennessee to get away from the situation. They also said he was devastated by the death of Kazemi.
