NEW YORK (CBS) Monday night Nashville police released the name of Leah Ignagni, slain former NFL great Steve McNair's possible second girlfriend.

Sahel Kazemi, a woman who had been having a relationship with McNair, allegedly shot and killed the retired quarterback and then herself on July 4, 2009.

McNair was married.

In an updated police case summary released Monday, Oct. 19, Ignagni told police that a woman in the same model car that Kazemi owned had been following her a few weeks prior to McNair's murder.

Ignagni said that when leaving McNair's Lea Avenue condo, she "observed a female inside a black Cadillac escalade parked outside the building. Ignagni said she noticed the Escalade follow her as she drove to her apartment," the summary states.

Kazemi's former roommate Emily Andrews confirmed that Kazemi knew about McNair's other lover, police say. "Andrews said that Kazemi told her that she (Kazemi) found a tampon in the bathroom wastebasket in the Lea Avenue condo, and on another occasion, saw a female leaving the condo," the report states.

Was jealously at play in Steve McNair's death? The new police report does not specifically speculate on what role, if any, Ignagni might have played in Kazemi's mind, but they have previously stated they believed Kazemi killed McNair and herself because of stress, money worries, and jealousy.
