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."


Until we really find out what happened I think we all need just to wait and pray for the family and the souls of the Benoit family. If it all is true that he did kill his little boy and wife then he will get what is coming to him. Yes he was a great wrestler but he may have had alot of problems and just snaped. Still no reason to kill someone but hey people this stuff happens all the time and just because he was famous it is getting alot of attention. And myself being involved in law enforcement there is alot of steps that have to be taken to get all the story straight so all these sew happy people don't run out and get them a lawyer.


I have to say that no matter how great a wrestler Chris was he should not be remembered as a legend or hero for his victories but as a murderer... His family did not deserve this, a seven year old boy did not deserve this. He spent his whole life building his reputation and in one weekend completely broke it. I have no respect for this man anymore. I do pray for his family.


This all sounds too hollywoodish. I believe theres something terribly wrong that is being hidden. I found a website that shows the list of wrestlers who died before age 65 over the last 40 years and nearly all of them died with strange circumstances. need I not mention that a close friend of Chris' died not that loong ago bazzarely as well. Not to point a fingure but we might have a secret mafia like system going where once your in its nearly impossible to get out. one might note the story has changed several times already and each time it get bizzarer one might think about that and what about good ol Kevin Sullivan the WWE interviewed him not too long ago as well. Could we have a back door rub out


something isnt right here things dont tally up what are the WWE hiding how can we be possitive that it was Chris Benoit who killed his wife and son untill all the facts are there then we should reserve judgement as for the rest of the wrestlers they want to take a hard long look at themselfs it could be one of them next


if it is true how can someone that have the best job and a loving family do something like this


I have been watching this terrible tradegty unfold.I do feel sorry for all of the victims in this case,with that being said,i also believe chris to be a victim himself.He may have done things as others have said,but what actually led up to this tradgety,my guess is noone will ever know for sure.I am upset by the wwe and others who want to treat chris as he never existed and i think thats wrong.what ever happened to inocent until proven guilty.everyone has already made him guilty,and we must remember there are still loved ones he left behind and i think that everyone should show them a little respect,especially tthe wwe for whom he made so much money.Shame on them and especially vince Mcmahon


it's hard to stomach that chris killed his wifw,son and himself.If he did then I have lost all respect for him.His name will never cross my lips again.If evidence was planted to make him look guilty.Then we will here that when the roprts come back.Someones job is usally the first to know before it's annouced to the public.


After using steroids for a long time, Chris suffered from erectile dysfunction. Naturally, his wife became dissatisfied with their relationship and had an affair. Chris found out and went on a 'roid rage'. He killed his wife for being unfaithful and his son who may not be his legitimate son afterall, since Chris is sterile. Overwhelmed by guilt, Chris took his own life as he realised that it was not worth living 'a dog's life as a 'cheated' wrestler. Sad story...


chris benoit had a coffin match with his family, however, the undertaker came in, and buried them all as "the deadman" is undefeated in coffin heard it here first folks.


I can't believe how the power of celebrity can warp a person's ability to see reality. That's why many people feel the need to develop far fetched conspiracies rather than accept the facts. Whether you like it or not, OJ was guilty, Oswald shot JFK, and Benoit killed his family and himself. Deal with it and get on with your lives!
