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."

Right. firstly, the ignorance of some of the comments made by stupid, know it all, 'I think im a detective' type people really does disgust me. i personally loved chris benoit growing up. i want to make it clear to any other dips**ts who may be concidering whether or not to put up a f**kp*ss comment like some of the other pompous twa*s, that they do in actual fact know f**k all. wait for the facts you worthless, no good, waste of space pieces of s**ts.its people like you that ruin human dignity. live long in heaven chris. innocent or not. you'll always be my favourite.

To my knowledge it has yet to be proven that Chris did indeed commit these terrible murders, it could very well be a triple murder...at this point we haven't been given all the facts. If he is guilty he must have experienced a massive agonizing emotional breakdown, and if that is the case then my heart goes out to him. Hearing about the love he felt for his wife and son, and knowing that they are with the Father in Heaven....there is no doubt in my mind that they have already forgiven him. To Chris's family, know that our God is a merciful God that loves us all unconditionally. My prayer is that someday we will all honor God by loving each other the same way. God Bless You All !

Let's not be so hasty, Levi. Future WWE Diva may have a point, and a future as being a diva in the WWE.
All we know for sure is that the three Benoits are dead. What we do NOT know is who really killed them. Has anyone looked into the whereabouts of former New Jersey Nets Benoit Benjamin and David Benoit on that fateful night? Those are two Benoits that we cannot account for. And as we all know, former Nets have killed people before. Someone should check to see if Benoit Benjamin and David Benoit contacted Jayson Williams recently. Just a thought.
