    Chris Benoit found dead alongside family


    This is crazy:

    FOX Sports on MSN - More Sports - Pro wrestler Benoit, family found dead


    "FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - WWE wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife and son were found dead Monday and police said they were investigating the deaths as a homicide.

    Lt. Tommy Pope of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department said the three were found at their home about 2:30 p.m., but refused to release details.

    Pope said results of autopsies on Benoit, his wife Nancy, and 7-year-old son Daniel were expected Tuesday.

    Benoit, 40, was a former world heavyweight champion, Intercontinental champion and held several tag-team titles over his career.

    "WWE extends its sincerest thoughts and prayers to the Benoit family's relatives and loved ones in this time of tragedy," the federation said in a statement on its Web site.

    Benoit was scheduled to perform at the "Vengeance" pay-per-view event Sunday night in Houston, but was replaced at the last minute because of what announcer Jim Ross called "personal reasons."

    Benoit, a Canadian native, maintained a home in metro Atlanta from the time he wrestled for the defunct World Championship Wrestling.

    The WWE canceled its live "Monday Night RAW" card in Corpus Christi, Texas, and USA Network aired a three-hour tribute to Benoit in place of the scheduled wrestling telecast. "

    SO sad. I used to be a big wrestling fan. Benoit was a great performer and a real athlete. I wonder what happened. And his wife and 7 year old son, damn.

    this is awful. Some news stations are now reporting that the cops believe it was a double murder/suicide.

    I refuse to believe the rabid wolverine would murder his family!!!

    That's a damn shame...of course they'll try to blame steroids somehow.

    I liked Benoit as a professional wrestler but almost everyone is sayng "he will be missed...he was a great family man.." Even on RAW tonight they talked about how much he loved his family. If Atlanta is investigating this as a double murder suicide then he committed one of the worest crimes you can...against his family. Let's get a grip here...we love professional wrestling, and we loved Benoit as a performer but perhaps we didn't know him as well as a person as we all thought....

    LOL, Fox News reported that steroid withdrawal is the leading cause of suicide among teens. Yeah, a serious media witch hunt over steroids is coming.

    And I believe steroids weren't a contributor AT ALL.

    I do believe however chronic addiction to painkillers and stims may have contributed to mental problems though.
