Mechelle McNair

Mechelle McNair

The widow of former NFL quarterback Steve McNair has delivered her first public comments since his death earlier this month, reports

Thanking those who have offered words of support, Mechelle McNair said in a statement released Friday afternoon, “Mere words are inadequate to express the gratitude that my family holds for all of the countless expressions of sympathy for the loss of my husband, Steve McNair. Your prayers, kind deeds and outpouring of support throughout this difficult time have been of tremendous comfort to us.”

On behalf of herself and her family, she added, “May you be richly blessed for all that you have done and continued to do. You are appreciated beyond measure.”

The former Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens quarterback, 36, was killed on July 4 by his mistress Sahel Kazemi, 20, who faced mounting debts that included payments on a Cadillac Escalade he’d helped her to buy, and who suspected him of seeing yet another woman who was not his wife, Nashville police said.


Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson

Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators are trying to figure out whether employees at the coroner’s office illegally leaked or sold private information related to the investigation of Michael Jackson’s death, reports the Associated Press.
Investigators spoke to the coroner’s office Friday and will handle the inquiry with the district attorney’s office, according to sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore. The department is conducting the probe at the request of county supervisors, he said.

“It’s an inquiry, not an investigation, and it is very preliminary,” Whitmore said. “We’ve just made a couple of calls. We want to find out if we need to proceed, if this requires an investigation.”

The coroner’s office said Wednesday Jackson’s death certificate was improperly viewed by at least a half-dozen employees who had no role in investigating the cause of his death. Improper views of the certificate, which is stored in a state-supervised computer system, is a violation of internal rules, not any laws, Harvey said.

Within two weeks of the entertainer’s June 25 death, the certificate had been viewed more than 300 times, according to Harvey. The electronic death registration system can be accessed by anyone with a state-issued password, including employees at coroner’s offices, funeral homes, hospitals and county and state registrar’s offices.


Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby

On a Boston radio program Thursday morning, Bill Cosby suggested that President Obama spoke too soon on the controversial arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, reports the Christian Science Monitor.

“I’ve heard about five different reports [on the details of the arrest],” Cosby said on Boston’s WZLX. “If I’m the president of the United States, I don’t care how much pressure people want to put on it about race, I’m keeping my mouth shut.”

“I was shocked to hear the president making this kind of statement,” Cosby said referring to the president’s remarks during Wednesday night’s press conference.

The comedian appeared to have dialed his comments back a bit in a later interview on Boston’s FOX 25 television station. Cosby cautioned those from coming up with their own conclusions, but gave the president some leeway.

“People who have not been there, people who don’t know are beginning to have their own personal feelings, but they weren’t there,” Cosby said.

“Does this include the president?” asked the FOX25 reporter.

“It includes everybody,” Cosby said. “[But] I would have to take into consideration that he lived in Cambridge for some time so he may know more than he’s saying about situations of that sort,” Cosby said.
