Public Memorial, Viewings Set for Ex-QB McNair

Published July 6, 2009

A public memorial and viewings are scheduled later this week for slain former NFL quarterback Steve McNair.

The public will have a couple of opportunities to attend viewings in Nashville on Thursday and a memorial will be held later that evening at Mount Zion Baptist Church.

A funeral will be held Saturday in Mississippi but arrangements are not yet final. McNair, 36, was from Mt. Olive, a small town in southern Mississippi.

Fans are asked to make donations to the Steve McNair Foundation.

The former quarterback was found shot to death inside a Nashville condo Saturday. A 20-year-old woman police say he had been dating was found dead beside him.

Police say McNair was the victim of homicide, though they aren't yet ready to label Sahel Kazemi's death a suicide.
