Chris Benoit and Family

Recommended Posts

another theory i saw posted was that his wife was the one who killed their son, he came home and saw his son dead. in a rage he strangled his wife, then subsequently committed suicide. that could be the reason why they all died on different days.

if it was all benoit, i wonder if post-concussion syndrome which has been in the media a ton lately, combined with the steroids, contributed to him snapping. could be the case in alot of former wrestlers/ football players. seems like alot of em go out in some crazy way or suffer from sort of addiction or depression.

it has been a very sad past 24 hours or so. watching Raw last nite was a difficult time. then finding out more to the story here in the past hour or so really has me feeling ill. this is a tragedy regardless of who/what/when/where/why or how. it is not up to me to judge, but the whole Benoit family is in my prayers.

Interesting theory, since his wife's hands were tied behind her back.

Gutless. If you want to off yourself, go find somewhere and do it. Killing your wife? Killing your child? GUTLESS! B)

the theory was based on the wife killing the child first before benoit even got there. i'd have to agree with the WWE on one thing though. i dont think the killings were done during a fit of "roid rage." all the actions: tying up his wife, placing bibles next to the dead bodies, the amount of time b/t the killings, suggest deliberation. benoit just went crazy probably from a combination of all the drugs hes taking, heavy stress and possible brain injuries.

other crazy news coming out of this story was that the 7 y/o was found with track marks in his arms. benoit had been shooting him up with HGH.

i read that their son was mentally retarded and was a borderline-dwarf. what kind of sick f#*&-ing moron, include the mom if she was in on it too, would do that to their child.

Yup, story I read in the local paper was that both parents thought the kid was "undersized" and he was given HGH.

Nice.

Well, you need a license to own a dog and catch a fish..........but any idiot can be a parent.

This is really weird...from ESPN

Investigators are looking into who altered pro wrestler Chris Benoit's Wikipedia entry to mention his wife's death hours before authorities discovered the bodies of the couple and their 7-year-old son.

Benoit's Wikipedia entry was altered early Monday to say that the wrestler had missed a match two days earlier because of his wife's death.

A Wikipedia official, Cary Bass, said Thursday that the entry was made by someone using an Internet protocol address registered in Stamford, Conn., where World Wrestling Entertainment is based.

An IP address, a unique series of numbers carried by every machine connected to the Internet, does not necessarily have to be broadcast from where it is registered. The bodies were found in Benoit's home in suburban Atlanta, and it's not known where the posting was sent from, Bass said.

Benoit's page on Wikipedia, a reference site that allows users to add and edit information, was updated at 12:01 a.m. Monday, about 14 hours before authorities say the bodies were found. The posting, according to ABCNews.com, contained the following information:

"Chris Benoit was replaced by Johnny Nitro for the ECW Championship match at Vengeance, as Benoit was not there due to personal issues, stemming from the death of his wife Nancy."

Benoit strangled his wife and son during the weekend, placing Bibles next to their bodies, before hanging himself on the cable of a weight-machine in his home, authorities said. No motive was offered for the killings, which were discovered Monday.

Also Thursday, federal drug agents said they had raided the west Georgia office of a doctor who prescribed testosterone to Benoit.

The raid at Dr. Phil Astin's office in Carrollton began Wednesday night and concluded early Thursday, said agent Chuvalo Truesdell, a spokesman for the Drug Enforcement Administration. No arrests were made.

Hours before the raid, Astin told The Associated Press he had treated Benoit for low testosterone levels, which he said likely originated from previous steroid use.

Among other things, investigators were looking for Benoit's medical records to see whether he had been prescribed steroids and, if so, whether that prescription was appropriate, according to a law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity because records in the case remain sealed.

Astin prescribed testosterone for Benoit, a longtime friend, in the past but would not say what, if any, medications he prescribed when Benoit visited his office Friday.

State medical records show that Astin's privileges were suspended for three months in 2001 at a Georgia hospital for "reasons related to competence or character."

Astin did not return calls to his cell phone from the AP on Thursday.

Steroids were found in Benoit's home, leading officials to wonder whether the drugs played a role in the killings. Some experts believe steroids cause paranoia, depression and violent outbursts known as "roid rage."

Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard said in a statement Thursday that he could not immediately comment on the raid.

Reporters informed the Fayette County district attorney's office of the Wikipedia posting Thursday, and the agency forwarded the information to sheriff's investigators, who are looking into it, a legal assistant said in an e-mail to the AP.

WWE attorney Jerry McDevitt said that to his knowledge, no one at the WWE knew Nancy Benoit was dead before her body was found Monday afternoon. Text messages released by officials show that messages from Chris Benoit's cell phone were being sent to co-workers a few hours after the Wikipedia posting.

WWE employees are given WWE e-mail addresses, McDevitt said, though he did not know whether Chris Benoit had one.

"I have no idea who posted this," McDevitt said. "It's at least possible Chris may have sent some other text message to someone that we're unaware of. We don't know if he did. The phone is in the possession of authorities."

On Thursday afternoon, the Wikipedia page about Benoit carried a note stating that editing by unregistered or newly registered users was disabled until July 8 because of vandalism.

In other developments Thursday, Ballard told the AP that 10 empty beer cans were found in a trash can in the Benoit home. An empty wine bottle was found a few feet from where Benoit hanged himself, Ballard said.

It could take several weeks for toxicology tests to be completed on Benoit to see what substances, if any, were in his system.

Benoit took four months off from work in 2006 for undisclosed personal reasons, McDevitt said.

"He was feeling depressed, that kind of thing," McDevitt said.

In the days before the killings, Benoit and his wife argued over whether he should stay home more to take care of their mentally retarded 7-year-old son, according to an attorney for the WWE wrestling league.

The child had a rare medical condition called Fragile X Syndrome, an inherited form of mental retardation often accompanied by autism.

Chris Benoit's father, Michael Benoit, declined to comment on the slayings when reached Thursday by telephone in Alberta, Canada. Funeral arrangements were incomplete.

Information from The Associated Press and ABCNews.com was used in this report.

I saw a similar article on FoxSports but I thought they said the IP addy was tracked back somewhere to Con or NH.

I wonder if there is more to this? The way that wiki was updated was strange.

This is from CNN...............ATLANTA -- A user of the Web site Wikipedia confessed Friday to making edits to pro wrestler Chris Benoit's profile mentioning the death of Benoit's wife before authorities had found her body.

The anonymous user acknowledged in a lengthy post added to the Web site early Friday being "deeply sorry" and called the situation a "terrible coincidence."

The edits were originally reported by Wikinews, an online news source connected to Wikipedia. Friday's post was added to a discussion page for the Wikinews story. Wikinews said the IP address of the individual is identical to that of the user who edited Benoit's profile early Monday to include that Benoit's wife was dead.

The poster did not identify himself or herself.

The individual acknowledged being from Stamford, Conn., the home of World Wrestling Entertainment. In the message, the individual claimed no connection to WWE.

A spokeswoman for Wikimedia Foundation, Sandra Ordonez, said Friday the IP address connected to the individual has a history of editing wrestling-related articles on Wikipedia.

Ordonez referred all additional questions to authorities investigating the deaths.

Authorities said investigators had not yet discovered the bodies of Benoit, his wife and their 7-year-old son when someone altered Benoit's Wikipedia entry to mention his wife's
