    Final pic of Benoit alive - taken at his doc's place on Friday

    http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/ne...rom-Friday.htm

    The above photo is the last known picture of Chris Benoit alive, obtained by WSB-TV Channel 2. It was taken Friday afternoon at Dr. Astin's office in Carrollton.

    Dr. Astin has stated that he did not notice anything unusual about Benoit during his meeting with him that afternoon.

    Benoit killed his wife the next day, followed by his son on Sunday and then himself on Monday.

    Benoit family funeral plans & Chris Benoit's father comments-

    http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/met...eralplans.html

    Wrestler to be buried in Canada, wife in Florida

    By KEVIN DUFFY
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
    Published on: 06/28/07

    Professional wrestler Chris Benoit will have a private service in Canada, separate from the services for his wife and son, his father said Thursday.

    Benoit's parents, Michael and Margaret Benoit, live in Ardrossan in the Canadian province of Alberta.

    The bodies of Benoit, his wife Nancy Benoit and their 7-year-old son, Daniel, are at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab.

    Benoit killed his wife and his mentally handicapped son last weekend and then hanged himself at their exclusive Fayette County home near Peachtree City.

    "It's a horrible, horrible event that's happened," Michael Benoit, the wrestling star's father said, speaking softly on the phone. "We have no understanding why it happened. It's going to take us a long time to come to terms with this, and we may never come to terms with it."

    Nancy Benoit's parents, Paul and Maureen Toffoloni, live in Daytona Beach, Fla., where services for Nancy Benoit and Daniel probably will be held, Benoit said.

    The plan is to cremate the mother and child in Georgia, according to Bee Huddleston of Carl J. Mowell and Sons Funeral Home in Peachtree City, which is assisting the families.

    Mowell and Sons was scheduled to pick up the bodies of the mother and son late Thursday from the G.B.I. medical examiner's office in Decatur.

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with Nancy's family," Benoit said. "We're very concerned about the long-term affects on her family.

    "There are no words to describe the loss we feel."

    Wow. He handled himself incredibly well in that interview... alot better than I would have. My blood was boiling just watching that nonsense (maybe it was roid rage).

    My sister's boyfriend is a wrestler with ECW, who's identity I won't disclose, and I'm sure he is hearing all kinds of stupid bullsh1t. I can't wait to hear what some of my judgemental family members have to say. There are some family members who in the past have queried as to whether or not I use steroids and tell me of all the horrors associated but have never done one iota of research on the nature of the compounds. All these people that are on their soapbox have no clue and don't even make an effort to obtain a clue prior to opening thier stupid ignorant mouths.

    This whole situation is a goddomn shame.

He will re-emerge from the rafters during the first Raw of next year. The wife and kid are dead though. McMahon couldn't fit them into the storyline.

    In the long term all things become the subject of humor. Therefore those of us who laugh now are actually ahead of our time.

    BAH, I give kudos to anyone who finds humor in tragedy. It's healthier. Why stress and feel like crap when you can laugh about it instead?

    Oh dear, I've been cursed and called a name on the internet! I feel so, so, so, Oh I don't know, unimpressed.

    If you want to insult me, could you at least open a seperate thread? I'd like this one to remain open to discuss the topic and not see it closed because someone can't read and abide by the rules. And I never laughed harder than at my father's funeral, remembering good times with my brother and some of his friends. And he didn't exactly die pretty. That's how I am. If it offends you, I'm not the least bit sorry. Humor in the face of tragedy is indicative of strength.

    I have to say giving them Bibles after their death is counterproductive. It was after all too late to cram for finals at that point.

    I agree with that, so long as it isn't tactless. I'm sure your laughter at your father's funeral wasn't the response of a disrespectful or offensive joke which compromised or defamed his integrity or charactor.

    Of course it was. Humor is cruel by nature.

    Wow this thread deteriorated quickly..It's obvious he was suffering some severe stress from his sons illness and his wife wanting him home more which probably caused depression and could of been enhanced by steroid use..There are no excuses for what he did but he just didnt wake up and everything was fine and a little voice in his head said kill your family and yourself today..You cant blame it on just steroids,but that is the hot button issue today look at major league baseball,balco,olympics ect so there fore the media will key on that...Alot of other wrestlers died from past steroid ABUSE and that is the key word abuse..If this was a family of someone here i dont think you would see the kind of insensitive post's...This is a very sad situation and i think you will find depression will play a huge factor when all is said and done and it's nothing to laugh about and believe me I would know..

    You say deteriorated, I say the ability to laugh and maintain an even keal in the face of tragedy is what makes people strong. Public blubbering is something I can't stand. And some of us just have different views of what death means and its context in our lives.

    making distastefull jokes at someone else's expense doesnt make you strong it just lets everyone else see your insecurity, weakness, lack of understanding, lack of respect, lack of integrity, lack of courtesy...i can go on and on.
    If it was your family that you are making fun of it might be different.

    you think laughing in the face of tragedy makes a person strong... I'd hate to be you

    To me in indicative of coping in a way that allows you to stay sane but it should still be done in a manner that fits the surroundings. Remembering that others mourn in different ways is just being respectful even if you do it in a much different way.

    Yeah, he did. I especially like the part where he said," I don't know if any of that is true..... and neither do you."

    I likely wouldn't make jokes in front of his family out of respect for this very fact. The AM message board might be considered a little looser venue.

    Espn has a new cover story on this, and it is still somewhat surreal. Just from a parents perspective, it seems odd. The more they discuss Benoits suicide it seems very well thought out. Basically using a lat pull down and tying it, then releasing 240lbs. I wonder if he had thought this out more than we know?

    Wow. I kinda expected to see some bad responses. Seems CDB took the fall rather than me. CDB and I have similiar views i think. I pity and mourned the situation but im not gonna sit here and stay all sad about a tragic situation when tragedies happen all the time. So another famous person gets his story out there and everyone follows in closely like its some kind of sitcom. So i guess i cracked a 'tasteless' joke on a sad matter....im so heartless. So if you see a homeless person begging for food, do you feed him? you dont take him to a buffet? youre heartless!!!! lol. come on boys...whats done is done i dont feel like i should take the statement back or apologize, I know where i stand. Its a unfortunate event simple as that. Ive been laughed at in my miserable moments as well, no biggie. Im still breathing and it makes me stronger to be pushed passed the norm, by me, and by others.

    what you just said makes sense, i just dont see how CDB thinks you become a stronger person when you make fun of someone else's misfortunes. There is nothing good about making fun of a mom and her kid geting murdered. Doing something like that and thinking your cool just brings out your trashy character. Facing tragedy and not letting it have a negative affect on you.. that is strength. Laughing and making distastfull jokes about a tragedy is cowardly. There is a thing called RESPECT,
    sure this is a forum and people say what they want and thats fine.. i just come from a background where respect is a big thing and it just irritates me when i see someone show utter disrespect about something then try to convince people that disrespect = strength and people actually believeing that garbage!

    i never said i feared death.... i dont know where you got that from, i guess you couldnt thing of anything to say because i called you out and now you have to make up more silly comments.


    The only thing i fear is God and thats it.

    The fact is you have no balls, all the steroids you take shrunk them and now your living in denial.

    I wonder if he entered it into his workout log first.

    Exactly. It used to be a quintissential trait of Americans that no matter how bad things got they could laugh and crack a joke. Now everyone's all serious all the time. Life is not that serious. Wacky and tragic **** happens. If you have to sit there and mourn each event as if your mother just got axed, you'll go nuts.

    You fear it because you can't laugh at it. Everyone dies, some worse than others.

    The only thing i fear is God and thats it.
    God is a *****,

    The fact is you have no balls, all the steroids you take shrunk them and now your living in denial.
    Nope, they're full and active, happy to tell you. I'm just not looking to throw on a black suit and mournful face for every fly that gets swatted in this world. Sue me. I'm with George Carlin, you can joke about anything. And public mourning is fake BS in my opinion. The world has to stop while everyone who experiences a loss plants a white cross on the road and then goes on Oprah to get 'closure'. Nobody takes the punch anymore and just moves on with their life. To me that's a lot more of a loss than anything a few tasteless jokes might add up to.

    Update on Benoit tragedy

    Tox reports came in today:

    Credit - Richard Gray, WrestlingNewsWorld.com

    The press conference begins with District Attorney Scott Ballard briefing the public on the case. He says that today we are here to talk about one component of the investigation and that is the toxicology results.

    Ballard hands the podium over to a doctor who says that they found Hydrocodone and Xanax in the system of Nancy Benoit. The doctor says that the levels were at therapeutic levels and she had a 0.184 blood alcohol level. However, he says that they are unable to tell if she had drank alcohol because the blood alcohol level was due to the decomposition process of her body.

    Daniel Benoit had Xanax at elevated levels in his system. It is their opinion that Daniel was sedated prior to the time he was murdered.

    Chris Benoit's system was positive for Xanax and Hydrocodone. Both were at therapeutic levels. The only steroid found in Benoit's system was testosterone. It was found in elevated levels which indicate that he was taking it prior to his death.

    No evidence of GHB in any of the three bodies.

    Very interesting... I wonder if they're gonna demonize testosterone in the same light as the were "steroids" (now that we know it was just test and not something a little more taboo like tren, anadrol or the likes)

    DECATUR, Ga. - Pro wrestler Chris Benoit had a steroid and other drugs in his system when he killed his wife and young son last month and hanged himself in the family's home, investigators said Tuesday.

    Benoit's body contained 10 times the normal level of testosterone, as well as the anti-anxiety drug Xanax and the painkiller hydrocodone, authorities said.

    The testosterone, a synthetic version of the primary male sex hormone, is considered an anabolic steroid. The state's top medical examiner said it appeared to have been injected shortly before Benoit died.

    Dr. Kris Sperry said there was no evidence of any other steroids in the wrestler's body, and nothing to show that steroids played a role in the death of Nancy and Daniel Benoit. He also said the boy appeared to have been sedated when he was asphyxiated, and Benoit's wife had a "therapeutic" level of sedatives in her body.

    Sperry said there is no consensus that the use of testosterone can contribute to paranoia, depression and violent outbursts known as "roid rage."

    "This a question that basically no one knows the answer to," Sperry said. "There is conflicting scientific data as to whether or not testosterone creates mental disorders or leads to outbursts of rage," he said. "There's data that suggests it and other data that refute it."

    The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Benoit tested negative for alcohol.

    Benoit killed his wife and 7-year-old son, placed Bibles next to their bodies and then hanged himself on the cable of a weight machine. After the slayings, prescription anabolic steroids were found in the family's home, raising questions about whether the drugs played a role in the killings.

    Benoit's wife, Nancy, tested positive for Xanax, hydrocodone and the painkiller hydromorphone. Daniel Benoit had Xanax in his system, authorities said.

    The GBI said it could not perform tests for steroids or human growth hormones on the boy because of a lack of urine.

    Federal authorities have charged Benoit's personal physician, Dr. Phil Astin, with improperly prescribing painkillers and other drugs to two patients other than Benoit. He has pleaded not guilty.

    Investigators have also raided Astin's office several times since the deaths, seizing prescription records and other documents.

    Before he was charged, Astin told the AP he prescribed testosterone for Benoit, a longtime friend, in the past. He would not say what, if any, medications he prescribed when Benoit visited his office June 22, the day authorities believe Benoit killed his wife.

    World Wrestling Entertainment last screened Benoit for steroids in April. It said the results released Tuesday were proof Benoit did not test positive for illegal substances.

    "All it means is that scientifically, it's now known that sometime between April 10 and when he died, he had treatment with testosterone," said Jerry McDevitt, a WWE attorney. "That's all it establishes."
