CHRIS BENOIT WWE MURDERS 8 YEARS LATER!
BENOIT MURDER SUICIDE CASE CLOSED
San Francisco, CA– When people are murdered, I don’t consider that day of the year an anniversary. Although I remember November 22, 1963 for that was the day President John Kennedy was killed in a coup, it is not a day of celebration. But last month, June 25th to be exact, means it had been eight years since professional wrestler Chris Benoit, wife Nancy and their son Daniel were found dead in their Fayetteville County, GA mini-mansion.
PEOPLE SAY “CHRIS WAS FRAMED”
These are a group of people that have followed this case and came up with absurd theories. One quack had Nancy’s ex-husband Kevin Sullivan involved, another said it was “home invasion.” I think I’ve laid out all the facts in the case, having perused police reports, toxicology tests, autopsy reports, I left no stone unturned. This case is closed, I’d stake my Private Investigator’s license on that.
CHOKED NANCY BENOIT PROBABLY FRIDAY
Actually, Benoit had killed his wife Nancy first, drugged his son before takinghis life, and then hung himself on a weight machine on the ground floor of the house. A forensic examination indicated that Nancy had been dead at least 2-3 days. She was found tied up. her feet and wrists bound before dying of asphyxiation some time on Friday. Daniel had expired probably June 23, before Benoit did himself in June 24, as neighbors and police did not enter the house until 2:30 PM ET on Monday, June 25, 2007.
BLOGGER HAD NANCY DEAD BEFORE ANYBODY KNEW!
Although something weird preceded the murders, again there is NO DOUBT that Benoit was the man who killed his family before committing suicide. The conspiracy talk began when Nancy Benoit’s death was reported on a blog prior to anybody having any knowledge of the homicides and suicide. It was a joke that just happened to turn out to be real.WAS DANIEL RETARDED AS SOME THINK?
Daniel Benoit, Chris and Nancy’s only child was just seven years old when his father killed him. He had internal injuries to the throat area. Not your normal kid per se, Daniel was afflicted with a mental illness called “Fragile X Syndrome,” even though Chris Benoit denied it. Fragile X syndrome is a genetic condition involving changes in part of the X chromosome. It is the most common form of inherited intellectual disability (mental retardation) in boys.
BENOIT KID RECEIVED “HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE” SHOTS
The coroner also mentioned in the autopsy of Daniel Benoit, that he had several “injection marks” on his body, where it is believed his father gave him illegal Human Growth Hormone, in what seemed like an attempt by Chris to aid his son as HGH was not prescribed.
PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUGS DUDN’T HELP!
While talking with an MD about this a while back, he told me that because of Benoit’s abuse of Steroids, among other drugs, that Daniel’s condition may have been the result of the decades of steroid use. Another clinician told me that NFL players seem to have a greater tendency to have Autistic children, possibly due to the use of performance enhancing drugs. When the pathologist conducted the autopsy on Chris Benoit, they found his Testosterone level to be 59-1 ratio. A couple of years ago, UFC fighter Alistair Overeem was suspended for testing out at 14-1. Normal is circa 4-1.
NEVADA BANS TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
After first approving, the Nevada State Athletic Commission has banned Testosterone Replacement Therapy for boxing and MMA. They do not sanction wrestling as it is entertainment and not a sport.
BRAIN DAMAGE FROM WRESTLING & STEROIDS
Benoit’s brain was examined and found to be like an 85-year old man suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. To that, WWE chairman Vince McMahon scoffed and said that Benoit could not have been in such a state as he made appointments, was on time for matches, could remember scripts, etc. It’s saying crap like that has made McMahon a despised individual by a good number of people in and out of wrestling.
CHRIS NOT MUCH OF A TALKER!
But if you remember, Benoit was never a good guy with the microphone. The brain trauma that Benoit endured in his 22 years of professional wrestling which is “worked” or prearranged, meaning the winners and losers are determined before the match takes place. But Benoit used as his finishing move for many years a dive off the corner of the ring from the top rope to head butt a prone opponent.
SOME TIMES THINGS GO WRONG IN WRESTLING
Speculation has it that Chris suffered so many concussions with the move that damaged his brain, which led, in the minds of experts to slaughtering his family. Nancy, who was married to the “booker” of talent in the now defunct World Championship Wrestling, Kevin Sullivan was dubbed “Woman” as she was a valet for various wrestlers.
KEVIN WROTE HIS OWN DIVORCE SCRIPT!
Sullivan, who was a fair wrestler at best with modest success with a Goth look, wrote a script where his wife Nancy would “fake” an affair with Benoit. Before you knew it, Nancy and Chris were no longer acting and in fact sleeping together. It is probably one of the few times in history where a man designed his own divorce.
CHRIS BENOIT DID IT PERIOD!
Some eight years later and nobody mentions Benoit on television or anywhere else. What I found so weird about these deaths is that Benoit, known as “The Crippler,” a name used by one of the greats in wrestling Ray Stevens in the 60s, 70s and 80s, is thought by the coroner to have killed a drugged out Daniel with his famous finishing move, the “Crippler Crossface” choke hold.
NEXT TIME YOU SEE SOMEBODY GET KNOCKED OUT!
Recently we are learning that a percentage of NFL players suffering from head trauma received in their gridiron days are Clinically Depressed, suffering from dementia, or as Junior Seau did, killed himself from the effects of repetitive concussions. Take that into consideration next time you watch a boxing or MMA match!
