Chris Benoit, family found dead


Written: June 25, 2007


STAMFORD, Conn., June 25, 2007 – World Wrestling Entertainment was informed today by authorities in Fayetteville County, Ga., that WWE Superstar Chris Benoit, his wife, Nancy, and his son were found dead in their home. Authorities are investigating, but no other details are available at this time.

Instead of its announced programming for tonight on USA Network, WWE will air a three-hour tribute to Chris Benoit.

Chris was beloved among his fellow Superstars, and was a favorite among WWE fans for his unbelievable athleticism and wrestling ability. He always took great pride in his performance, and always showed respect for the business he loved, for his peers and towards his fans. This is a terrible tragedy and an unbearable loss.

WWE extends its sincere condolences and prayers to the Benoit family and loved ones in this time of tragedy.

Additional information on World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. can be found at wwe.com and corporate.wwe.com. For our global activities, go to www.wwe.com/worldwide/.

According to lead investigator Lt. Tommy Pope, of the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department, in Fayetteville, Ga., the deaths of WWE Superstar Chris Benoit, wife Nancy and son Daniel were the result of a double murder-suicide, WWE.com has learned.
Benoit failed to appear both at Saturday’s live event in Beaumont, Texas, and WWE’s Vengeance: Night of Champions in Houston Sunday night, after informing WWE of a family emergency. Several curious text messages sent by Benoit early Sunday morning prompted concerned friends to alert Richard Hering, VP of Government Relations for WWE, Inc. Hering, in turn, spoke with Fayette County sheriffs Monday, and requested they respond to the Benoit residence to check on him and his family.
Authorities representing the Sheriff’s Department initially had a difficult time entering Benoit’s new Fayetteville home Monday afternoon, which had been guarded by two large German Shepherds roaming freely around the property. Once authorities entered the residence, they quickly located the bodies of Benoit, Nancy and Daniel. WWE was notified of the discovery at approximately 4 p.m.
At 10 p.m. Monday night, Lt. Pope held a press conference in conjunction with Scott Ballard, the district attorney for Fayette County. The press conference officially ruled authorities’ findings as a double murder-suicide from within the home.
WAGA, a FOX-owned and operated television station in Atlanta, reported that investigators believe Benoit killed his wife and 7-year-old son over the weekend, then himself on Monday.
The three bodies have been received by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s crime lab, in Decatur, Ga., where autopsies will be performed Tuesday morning. Toxicology reports will not become available for at least two weeks.
WWE.com has further information relating to both the investigation and the cause of death, but the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department has requested that WWE.com not release any additional details at this time.

ATLANTA -- Pro wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife, suffocated his 7-year-old son and placed a Bible next to their bodies before hanging himself by the pulley of a weightlifting machine, authorities said Tuesday.
Investigators also found prescription anabolic steroids in the house, Lt. Tommy Pope of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department. He would not comment on Benoit's state of mind or possible motive.

Autopsies showed all three died of asphyxiation, Pope said.
Benoit's wife, Nancy, was killed Friday in an upstairs family room, her feet and wrists were bound and there was blood under her head, indicating a possible struggle, Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard said.
The son, Daniel, was likely killed late Saturday or early Sunday, the body found in his bed, Ballard said.
Benoit apparently killed himself several hours and as long as a day later, Ballard said. His body was found in a downstairs weight room, his body found hanging from the pulley of a piece of exercise equipment.
The prosecutor said he found it "bizarre" that the WWE wrestling star spread out the killings over a long weekend and appeared to remain in the house for up to a day with the bodies.
"I'm baffled about why anybody would kill a 7-year-old," Ballard said. "I don't think we'll ever be able wrap our head around that."
Earlier, a law enforcement official speaking on a condition of anonymity said Benoit strangled his wife and smothered his son.

And his son was only 7 years old.

I was a huge Benoit fan, and I respected the hell out of him. But if this is true, and he killed his family, man that makes me so sick!

Sad news, it's hard to believe it's real.

He wasn't on Sunday's PPV due to "Personal Problems", I wonder if the 2 are related. His wrestling ability is the greatess next to the bret hart himself. I will miss benoit. I still cant beleive it.

Either way this is shocking news

In all seriousness, it's scary to think about the fact that he left the PPV due to a family emergency. What was going on? The most likely suspect right now, if it was a domestic issue, is murder/suicide. That's a terrible thing to consider, but it certainly wasn't something spur of the moment because of the "family emergency" that caused him to go home in the first place.

Excuse my language but this was really fucked up...did any details get relased, all i know is cops thinks he and his family was murdered...which is really bad...

the question i had was does anyone think, this had to do with Mr. Mic's fake death, like some crased fan thought Mr. Benoit had something to do with it so he went out and got revenge?

I dont know this is really bad news though...

Very Weird Shocked

Yes this does sound weird and you make an interesting point there rusty. Maybe their was an intruder and benoit was trying to give hints or something, or maybe he really did kill his family. Thats is very bizzaire man.
This is some freakish shizznit. I am very shocked disappointed and sad from all this news.

Exactly

Benoit was a MAN. He woudnt dare touch a woman. so I know he would even harm his wife, especially to kill her. It was setup. Im starting to look at the picture. Benoit was a True Man. and A Man wouldnt do that to his family. It is very weird and you make some interesting points

In a very strange way, I hope they were too. Cause, if they were not, then I have to come to grips with the fact that a man that I have followed since his debut in Stampede, a man that I have marked out for all this time, a man that I have admired, is a murder. And that, I can not believe....

Chris, Nancy, Danielle.....Rest In Peace. And say Hello to Eddie, Curt, and Davey Boy.
