Chris Benoit Death Considered a Murder-Suicide

by at . Comments

The sad story of Chris Benoit and his family is becoming clearer.

Around 4 p.m. yesterday afternoon, Atlanta police found the body of this former WWE star and his wife and son in their Fayette County home.

According to CNN, authorities were investigating the deaths as a murder-suicide. Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "The details, when they come out, are going to prove a little bizarre."

Those details may emerge after the completion of autopsies scheduled for Tuesday.

Investigators believe Benoit killed his wife and seven-year old son over the weekend and then himself sometime Monday. The bodies were found Monday afternoon in three different rooms of the house on Green Meadow Lane, in a subdivision off a gravel road about two miles from Whitewater Country Club.

The autopsies were scheduled to be done at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab in DeKalb County.

Ballard said a gun shot was not the cause of death, but would not provide any further details at this time.

World Wrestling Entertainment said on its Web site that it asked authorities to check on Benoit and his family after being alerted by friends who received "several curious text messages sent by Benoit early Sunday morning."
