The memorial service of slain ex-NFL quarterback, Steve McNair was attended as many as 5,500 at Mount Zion Baptist church on Thursday.

McNair was shot dead as he slept in the early hours of July 4th by his 20-year-old mistress, Sahel Kazemi, who he met six months ago.

Police determined earlier this week that Kazemi had killed the former Tennessee Titan star before pulling the trigger on herself.

A possible motive for the killing was that Kazemi suspected McNair,36, of being involved with another woman.

Kazemi was laid to rest on Friday at a private ceremony in Florida attended by about 30 family and friends.
