A Strange, Online Twist in Chis Benoit Murder Case

by at . Comments

Fourteen hours before investigators discovered the bodies of Chris Benoit, his wife, Nancy, and their 7-year-old son, Daniel, someone updated the professional wrestler's Wikipedia biography entry to include his wife's death.

Benoit's page on Wikipedia, a reference site that allows users to add and edit information, was altered at 12:01 a.m. Monday, though authorities did not find the bodies until after 2 p.m. that afternoon.

The entry cited that the reason Benoit missed a match Saturday night was "stemming from the death of his wife [Nancy Benoit]."

Wikipedia confirmed the time stamp's authenticity, Us Magazine reported. The entry was updated by someone using an IP address registered in Stamford, Connecticut, where World Wrestling Entertainment is based.

Chris Benoit at a press conference, years before the WWE star committed such heinous acts against his family.

On Friday, an anonymous user with the same IP address confessed on WikiNews to making the changes to the entry, but explained that the edit was just a "terrible coincidence" fueled by rumors and gossip.

"I just can't believe what I wrote was actually the case, I've remained stunned and saddened over it," the alleged user and WWE fan wrote.

the thing is they dont know for a fact that he did it o not... we may never know... and its stupid for all his fans to turn their back on him... thats upsetting.... he was a good man all of his fiends and family said it... its strange to me that everyone said that that knew him and then to find out that... its hard for his real fans to grasp the fact that he could really do that after knowing how gentle and kind hearted he was... we may never know the real truth behind it all and know if he did it or if they were all murdered...
