NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A former Metro police officer's request to reopen the investigation into the death of former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair has been denied.

Vincent Hill made the request amid what he called a "lack of evidence" in the case and a "flawed investigation" by Metro police.

McNair's death last Fourth of July was ruled a murder at the hands of his mistress, 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi, who then turned the gun on herself.

After reviewing Hill's 30-plus page complaint, the grand jury concluded he lacked evidence supporting his claims.

A panel made up of grand jury members felt questions raised by Hill were cleared by evidence collected by Metro police and thus the case should not be heard.

Hill resigned from the Metro Police Department three years before McNair's death "with disciplinary action pending."

According to documents in his file, Hill refused to stop a pursuit, crossing over the county line after being told not to by supervisors.

He served four years on the force.

Since McNair's death, Hill has written a book entitled "Playbook to a Murder", where he details the circumstances surrounding the deaths of McNair and Kazemi and his issues with the police department's investigation.

Under Tennessee law, private citizens can petition the grand jury to reopen case but it is rare they comply.
