Chris Benoit Conspiracy Theories Already Circling the Web

Chris BenoitYou knew it was bound to happen. The toxicology reports are not even back yet on wrestling fixture Chris Benoit, his wife, and his son, who passed away tragically earlier last weekend and yet the rumor mill is running rampant with a virtual “whodunit”. Rather than asking why the wrestler would murder his wife and the seven year old child friends and family claim Benoit “held on a pedestal” before committing suicide, the net is abuzz with “who” could have possibly killed Benoit and his family…other than Benoit himself.

The theories run the gamut, from Chris Benoit’s wife, Nancy, having an affair, to her ex-husband Kevin Sullivan coming and killing all three. However, there is one common theme…Chris Benoit is the hero or victor in nearly every scenario. For some reason, people simply cannot accept that Benoit, one of the most popular wrestlers with the WWE, could be capable of such a heinous crime, and yet everything points to him being responsible for the deaths of all three of the Benoits.

In one theory, long time wrestling fans have Chris Benoit’s one time rival in the ring, Kevin Sullivan, coming up from his home in Florida, to murder Nancy. The theory is that if Kevin couldn’t have her, then nobody could. Jealous of the child Kevin never had with his ex-wife, the rage filled Sullivan, murdered the child. However, Benoit, who was not home during the first two killings, found his wife, and as he stood their in shock, the conspiracy theorists believe Kevin snuck up on Benoit, knocked him out, and hung him from his weight equipment…in another room in the house.

Not only is this theory slanderous towards former wrestling star Sullivan, the scenario is absolutely preposterous. Benoit was not a small guy and there would most certainly be some sign of struggle if there was someone else in the house. Further, Kevin Sullivan has his own life now, with his wife Linda and the gym he runs in Florida.

Why would something from the 1990’s, when he was married to Nancy Benoit, suddenly spark a violent rage after all these years have passed? This scenario just does not make sense, and is downright insulting to Kevin Sullivan. He may not have been the most liked wrestler, but that does not make him a murderer!

Another scenario sweeping the web is the possibility of Nancy Benoit’s “imaginary lover” (which theorists swear must exist) having a show down with Benoit. In some scenarios, Benoit gets mad because the lover kills his son, and so he kills Nancy and hangs himself. In other scenarios, the other man kills Nancy for not leaving Benoit for him, and kills the son because he isn’t his son. When Benoit arrives home to the grisly scene, he doesn’t call police or seek medical help for the two. He sits in the house shocked, and eventually commits suicide.

Once again, this theory is preposterous. At present, there is no sign of this mystery man that could have been Nancy Benoit’s secret lover. It also does not explain the weird text message that was sent to a few of Benoit’s close friends and a neighbor, or why Benoit would not have sought the police had he found his wife and child murdered. The theories all seem to have major holes in them as far as “what facts we know” are presented.

Regardless, the intent of these theories is to remove all of the responsibility for the murders from Benoit’s shoulders and place it on someone else, even if there is no evidence to support such claims. This is a current trend in pop culture. We’ve seen people try to do it with the Britney Spears and Paris Hiltons. Now the general public is doing it with Chris Benoit. With this in mind, I have no doubt, if it were possible, these theorists would find a way to say aliens came down from their home planet, killed the Benoit family and staged it to look like a murder-suicide. It would be an open and shut case, but nothing is ever black and white.

In truth, the Benoit family, including Chris Benoit’s father Michael, who was stunned at the unexpected deaths of his son, grandson, and daughter-in-law, have accepted the fact that there is a strong possibility Chris was responsible for killing Nancy Benoit and his seven year old son. While no one seemed to have seen this coming, the hope is that toxicology reports can shed some light on what kind of state Benoit was in when the murders were committed.

What facts are known at this time, point to a murder-suicide scenario with Chris Benoit at the heart of it all. The current release of information states:

1. The murders were committed at various times throughout the weekend. The suicide was nearly a day later. This shows signs of premeditation and a deliberate nature to the killings. People who go into a rage do not kill their wife on Friday, son on Saturday night, and themselves on Sunday or early Monday morning.

2. The bodies of Nancy and Daniel (the 7 year old son who suffered from Fragile X Syndrome – a hereditary disease which leads to mental retardation and possibly autism) had Bible’s next to them. Another sign of deliberate thought.

3. Daniel had needle marks and was believed to be taking growth hormones due to being “undersized”.

4. Benoit had several bottles of steroids in his home. WWE believes this find is insignificant since he passed a steroid test April 10 and “Roid Rage” is not typically spread out over a weekend.

5. Benoit used a pulley, cable, and weights on a weight machine to choke and hang himself to death.

6. Prior to the suicide, Benoit’s Wikipedia page changed mysteriously by someone with connections to the WWE’s headquarters. The changes stated that Benoit had missed an event with WWE due to his wife’s death. This was prior to the police finding the bodies.

7. Chris Benoit sent strange text messages to friends, prompting the WWE to contact the police. In them, Chris supposedly told them both his wife and son were sick. By this point, they were dead.

8. Benoit text messaged a neighbor to let them know the pets were outside and the door was open. This was no doubt sent to let them know that authorities could come into the house.

9. Nancy Benoit had been bound and there were signs of a struggle as she fought for her life. It was believed she died by asphyxiation.

10. Daniel was found in his bed. By all signs, it appears he was choked to death.

11. The Benoits had filed for divorce in 2003 and Nancy Benoit wanted a restraining order due to “cruel treatment”. However, both the request for the order and divorce proceedings were dropped.

The facts of the case may still be unknown, but one thing that is known is three people are dead and one is a child. This bizarre and chilling case has reaffirmed my belief that you can’t truly know anyone in the public eye without knowing them personally (and even then you might not know them). So keep your loved ones close, and tell your children you love them one extra time. I’m just grateful I am in the state of mind where I know I could never harm my girlfriend or son…How many other men can say the same?

  1. Kristen says:

    First off, I would like to point out that to the public’s knowledge, the person who added the post about Nancy being dead 13 hours before the body’s were found is not connected to the WWE despite the location of the person’s home being in Stamford.

    Secondly, shouldn’t Kevin Sullivan at least have to provide an alibi for his whereabouts? Perhaps Benoit found his wife and kid dead and didn’t want to go on…

    I’m not saying that there’s no possibility that Benoit did it, but why is it crazy for anyone to question whether he actually did it or not?

    After all, revenge is a dish best served cold. Perhaps Kevin Sullivan waited until there was no way he would be suspected…just a thought.

    I just don’t understand why people can conclude that Chris Benoit is an asshole and snapped and killed his family, but other people can’t think that their idol maybe didn’t do it and someone else may be responsible.

    I know if someone killed my spouse and kids and I were depressed I wouldn’t want to go on either. Especially when I’d probably just be blamed anyways. And there was no suicide note. You wouldn’t want to have the last word in your life if you had just killed your wife and kid? You wouldn’t try to explain your actions? If indeed it was deliberate, he would have had a thought process and at least wanted to explain to family why it happened.

    Also, to place bibles beside their bodies? If he wanted them dead, he obviously didn’t want them around or respect them, so why would he worry about their immortal souls?

    All I’m saying is that there are other possible scenarios that could have occured and the police owe it to the families to look into every possibility before ruling anything out.

  2. Ashtyn says:

    Why should Sullivan need to supply an alibi? If the reasoning is that he once had a relationship with her, then we should go up looking for all the men who had relationships. They could have all done it.

    What’s next? Benoit’s old wife or ex-girlfriends did it to expose him for the heartless prick they feel he is?

    There is such a thing as common sense. Some people immortalize Charles Manson and feel he is an idol. It doesn’t make him any less guilty of his crimes.

    Benoit was a guy who gave his mentally/physically disabled son growth hormones. A 7-year old child had needle marks in his arms.

    Furthermore, if it was a crime of passion, people would have no reason to have stuck around and murdered the child, hours after the mother got it. Or is the new theory that the kid came home from the playground, found mommy dead, and decided to end it all, too.

    It was deliberate – The placing of the bibles showed some remorse, but it showed that he THOUGHT about the crimes prior to committing them. It showed that he didn’t want them to be blamed for the crimes that were committed to them.

    He killed himself with a cable weight and pulley in his weight room. I don’t know the exactly layout of his house, but if he walked in and saw them dead with the bibles, why would he move all the way through the house to hang himself there? Logical instinct, even emotional instinct would lead most people to run out of the house not all the way through it.

    The way he committed suicide also shows there was thought in his actions. Wrestling and physical activity was a huge and important part of his life. It showed in his career, in the inexcusable way he gave his son growth hormones, in how he took steroids, and in how he committed suicide. He went out the way he lived. The problem isn’t that he killed himself, it’s that he took his family with him.

  3. Dominick says:

    From what I am to understand of the crime, they did not initially say it was a murder-suicide until they had examined the scene. As such, with DNA evidence as high tech as it is, I’m pretty certain that investigators know the difference these days between a three person murder and a murder suicide.

    By the time they arrived, Nancy was already decomposing. The time line is too spread out to be a murder by anyone else. They are certain Nancy died sometime Friday evening. Daniel died Saturday Night/Sunday morning, and Chris died late Sunday Night/Early Monday. So, he sat in the house with the dead bodies.

    It is common for those who kill those they know, especially their wife or child to do something that shows “remorse” after the deed has been done. For some, this may mean covering the body. Out of sight, out of mind. For Benoit, I believe this was the Bible placing, as though he wanted them to go on to a better afterlife, despite their lives ending short.

    Murderers do not typically wait around for three days to kill three people. It’s usually wham, bam, thank you Ma’am. Neighbors didn’t see any suspicious individuals around the house. With a driveway that size, there would be evidence of another individual on the property.

    As for Kevin Sullivan, the fact that he lives hundreds of miles away in Florida and he insists he had not spoken to her since they broke up is believable. Why would he kill her? He had absolutely no motive…whatsoever.

  4. Michael Tabacchi says:

    How about to the fact that he said to Benoit “I will Kill YOU!” after he lost his job at WCW to Benoit for his termination and for stealing his wife. And the fact that there were ties to him and sensational sherri Martel who died just 2 weeks prior. I think a question and proof to his wearabouts isn’t much to ask. Also Georgia detectives are now saying that we shouldn’t assume its a murder murder suicide and not rule out a tripple homiside until all is unvailed.

  5. Michael Tabacchi says:

    He told Benoit openly 7 years ago he was going to kill him. Its been documented. And 2 ex’s in 2 weeks dead. And lost his high paying job with WCW because of Benoit. And lost his wife to Benoit. Yea that sounds like no motive to me.

  6. Dominick says:

    Michael,

    I guess next you’re going to tell me Kevin Sullivan killed Eddie Guerrero, too. I mean he quit when Benoit did, which led to Sullivan’s firing. Maybe he killed Bret Hart, too! Hell, let’s blame him for all the wrestling deaths.

    Sherri & Chris had ties to Vince McMahon (hell just about everyone in wrestling really)…but you don’t see him being accused. Perhaps it was the WWE “Gang Murder”. Vince has threatened to kill multiple people on the show…maybe he snapped and really “meant” it lol.

    Also, Sherri Martel’s death is unclear. It may be a drug overdose..or it may be a homicide…maybe her husband knocked her off. She hadn’t been feeling well lately…Could have been a “slow poisoning” for all anyone knows.

    Lots of people say “I’m going to kill you” in the heat of the moment. Nine out of ten times…its an open threat. Brothers & sisters say that stuff all the time in jest. It could have been a stupid wrestling “publicity” stunt anyway.

    If Kevin Sullivan did it…he is by far the most PATIENT murderer…biding his time for over 10 years then…BAM!

    Further, what did he do in the house for three days? Eat Peanut Butter & jelly sandwiches…as he sat amongst rotting corpses?

    He must have kept Benoit tied up and restrained for at least 3-4 days….so why? Think he fed him during that time? What about Sullivan’s wife? Did she think he was gone on a “fishing trip”?

    It would be easy to check an alibi on Kevin, considering he lives hundreds of miles from both Georgia & Alabama. Just check out his milage & gas records…besides going away on trips would be suspicious and he was apparently hanging out in his gym in Florida the entire time. So, unless he has a beam me “Scotty” platform….he’s probably not the murderer.

  7. Dominick says:

    I forgot to add “Benoit was SICK” anyway.

    He gave his seven year old “INJECTIONS” of illegal drugs. He gave his “mentally challenged” child drugs…The kid had track marks on him. His son was “too small” – a sign Benoit thought he wasn’t good enough.

    Him & his wife fought because she wanted Benoit home more. She needed help with her son’s care. Why didn’t he have a qualified nanny, nurse, or tutor? Lord knows they had the money! Perhaps he wanted to hide the track marks…or perhaps he was ashamed of his son’s disability. Perhaps he was so ashamed…killing his son was easier then bearing the burden of raising a disabled child.

    Furthermore, he didn’t kill himself because he was upset about his family. He committed suicide because he’s a quitter. The fights were about how his “fans” were most important…His wrestling came first…Wouldn’t want them to turn on him for “abandoning” his wife and mentally challenged child….No, killing them and himself would mean no judgment he’d have to deal with since he wouldn’t be alive to hear it.

    It’s pathetic & sad…that so many would look past all the clues pointing to him. They’d rather believe anything but that…Reminds me of OJ when everyone “swore” he was innocent. Come ten years later…most of them now believe he did it because common sense says he did.

  8. [...] by fanatical fans (turned conspiracy theorists) and I cannot say I disagree. You can read up on the conspiracy theories at Literary Illusions, and see just how many crazy fans have responded in favor of Benoit’s [...]

  9. Kerri says:

    1.) There was no suicide note, 2.) No domestic violence ever recorded, just divorce papers filed then dropped 3.) Chris Benoit took out a new life insurance policy, which listed his ex-wife and oldest child David, 14, and Megan, 10, as the beneficiaries. Nancy apparently confronted Chris about it and he refused to change it. Nancy also found out that Chris Benoit set up a new bank account in the name of his ex-wife in Edmonton. 4.) Hulk Hogan formally WCW star claims Chris Benoit’s deceased wife, Nancy. “She was into devil-worship stuff. It was part of her [wrestling] character, but [she was] somebody who gets so close to their character, someone who gets into their character too much. Sometimes these people believe their own publicity.” 5.) Chris Benoit recently had set up a second address for mailing purposes. 6.) Chris Benoit’s profile entry on the Wikipedia website was changed to note that he missed the WWE Vengeance pay-per-view, “due to personal issues, stemming from the death of his wife Nancy” 14 hours before the Benoit family was found dead. 7.) McMahon cautions against ‘rush to judgment’ in Benoit case. (Then why is he doing what he asked us not to do? by removing all benoit’s info off of WWE when he doesn’t know the truth either?) 8.) a year ago he became paranoid and believed he was being followed. He wouldn’t let Nancy leave the house because he believed “someone was out to get them.” (Could Kevin Sullivan been the someone?) 9.) a Bible was placed near each murder victim. (Could this be because Chris Benoit turned religious with Eddie, and Kevin Sullivan was Santanic?) 10.) no attempt to hide the bodies. (Could this be because someone wanted it to look like a murder suicide?) 11.) It is well known that Benoit was not a drinker of alcohol ( could the beer cans and wine bottle be props) 12.) “Roid Rage” doesn’t last 48-72 hours people. 13.) If Chris Benoit (or any person) was gonna kill his whole family and his self why wait 3 days? and look at the time periods? someone was there and did this as torture, and who else has a motive to do this … Kevin Sullivan… 14.) He was due to win the only title he had never won at the pay-per view, and he doesn’t show up? come on. Fayetteville police department need to get off there butts and do this properly… If it wasn’t Kevin Sullivan then it was someone else. But all of the proof is showing it was not Benoit. 15.) Isn’t it funny that Sensatial Sherri Martel died the same night as Nancy Benoit and she was hooked in with Kevin Sullivan (did she know something and had to be kept quite?) and the former tag team partner was found dead in his bed (Biff Wellington) these doen’t seem weird to anyone?
    16.) Chris Benoit was at the doctors office on friday… witnesses said he was polite, nice, friendly, smiling, soft spoken, posed for picture, signed autograph… this doesn’t sound like a man going home to kill his wife the same night…
    17.)It is well known he would always take a flight home if only for an hour or two just to spend time with his family before going on to the next show… this would give reason for him being there before the pay-per-view event also would go with the theory of him being peronoid that some one was out to get them….

    Chris Benoit was scheduled to appear at the WWE Smackdown/ ECW live event in Beaumont, Texas

    3:30pm
    A co-worker received a voice message from Benoit. The message from Benoit stated he missed his flight and over slept and would be late to the WWE Live Event. The co-worker called Benoit back, Benoit confirmed everything he said in his voice message and sounded tired and groggy. Benoit then stated, “I love you”. The co-worker stated that it was “out of context.” (Hmmm could he have been giving him a warning something was wrong, maybe someone was there killing them one by one)

    3:42pm
    The same co-worker was concerned with Benoit’s tone and demeanor and called Benoit for a second time. Benoit did not answer the call and the co-worker left a message stating “just call me back.” (Hmmm another sign somthing wasn’t right)

    3:44pm
    Benoit called the co-worker back stating he didn’t answer the call because he was on the phone with Delta changing his flight. Benoit stated he had a real stressful day due to Nancy and Daniel being sick with food poisoning. They discussed travel plans for the WWE Tour of Texas with Benoit still sounding groggy at this point according to the co-worker. ( hmmmm someone forcing him to call back so no one would call police so they can finish the job)

    4:30pm
    A co-worker who consistently travels with Benoit, called Benoit from outside Houston airport and Benoit answered. Benoit told the co-worker that Nancy was throwing up blood and that Daniel was also throwing up. Benoit thought they had food poisoning. Benoit stated he changed his flight and he would be arriving into Houston at 6:30pm. Benoit told the co-worker to drive onto the WWE event. (Hmmm and no one is still reading between the lines here)

    5:35pm
    Benoit called WWE Talent Relations stating that his son was throwing up and that he and Nancy were in the hospital with their son, and that Benoit would be taking a later flight into Houston, landing late, but would make the WWE live event in Beaumont. ( ok come on people … First it’s his wife and son then it’s just his son?)

    6:10pm
    A representative of Talent Relations called Benoit. The representative from Talent Relations asked Benoit what time Benoit was getting into Beaumont. Benoit responded he was leaving Atlanta at 9:20pm Eastern time arriving into Houston at 9:24pm Central time. The representative from Talent Relations advised Benoit that it would be too late to make the WWE live event in Beaumont. Benoit apologized citing he had a family emergency. The representative from Talent Relations suggested to Benoit that instead of going to the WWE live event in Beaumont, Benoit should take the flight to Houston, rest up and be ready for the Vengeance Pay-Per-View event. (Oh come on … obviously someone is there and he is trying to send a message something is wrong)

    6:13pm
    The representative from Talent Relations called Benoit to reconfirm the travel plans with no answer from Benoit. The representative from Talent Relations left a voice message to take the flight and rest up. (OMG this is the perfect time to call the police)

    WWE made several attempts to contact Benoit via phone and text messages, as well as, the local hospitals in the Atlanta area. As of 11:00 pm Sunday night there was no contact made with Benoit. ( Now they decide to start calling people… and if benoit did do this and these were his friends then why not say I am sorry or forgive me or something…..not his address that these people would have already known… NO! cause someone was there murdered them and sent the text messages so they would be found, to make it look like a double murder/ suicide, DUH!!!!!)

    I am no CSI or Profiler But I am in College studing to become a Crime Scene Investigator so come on people it is right there in your face… A Victim being accused ….. The police need to do their jobs.

    Monday, June 25, 2007

    12:30pm
    WWE was notified of text messages sent to the two co-workers.

    12:45pm
    WWE contacted the Fayetteville County Sheriff’s office and requested them to go to Benoit’s
    residence

    4:00pm
    WWE received a call from the Fayetteville County Sheriff’s office, advising that they entered
    the house of Benoit and found 3 deceased bodies (a male, a female and a child). The Fayetteville Sheriff’s office has secured the house as a “major crime scene” and that the Fayetteville County Sheriff’s Office had no further information.

    There are a lot of People who also sees things the way I do… and I am sure there are many more people who also do… just not the right people…

  10. Ashtyn says:

    I studied Criminal Justice, too. One of the first rules is that if you are emotionally involved in a crime it becomes harder for you to investigate it. Wrestling fans do not WANT Benoit to have done it. Therefore, they let their emotions rule their judgment.

    He’s a physical guy that was taking ONE YEARS worth of steroids in a few months. I am not saying it was ‘roid rage. However, if he has this much shit pumped in his blood and he’s such a strong guy, where were the signs of struggle? Why wasn’t the house trashed? Why were there no scratch marks, blood trails, or anything that shows that someone came into that house and tried to hurt someone?

    As a mother I can tell you if someone walked into my house and tried to hurt me I’d fight back because logic would state that my kid would be next. Nancy and Chris though, they don’t do anything? Further, I find it REALLY hard to believe that Chris, who is such an upstanding guy according to all of you, would just sit there during this whole “torture” (of which none was documented or physically evident, by the way) session and just allowed the murderer to use his phone and played his communications and text messaging bitch.

    Not exactly the guy I remember from WWE.

    He killed his wife. Maybe that was roid rage. Maybe he was tired of her shit. Maybe there were a lot of issues. No one knows because he left some text messages, but not a note. I guess he wasn’t a literary genius.

    After killing his wife he realized the error of his ways and knew that he couldn’t raise his kid on his own. Maybe he was a coward. Any man willing to cause physical harm to a woman is a coward in my book, so I will buy that.

    Once the kid was dead he knew there was no way out of it. He knew that he fucked up and that a long life of prison and hatred from people that had liked him and didn’t, which would hate him more, was sitting before him. So, he did was cowards do best. He wrapped a cable around his neck and that ended the story.

    Well it should have. A part of me cannot help but think that Benoit knew his fans were loyal enough to look for a way to make sure he was revered no matter what he had done. Killing himself and not leaving a note was the perfect way for him to end it because that would leave people to come to their own conclusion.

    I will leave you with a more important question. If it was so impossible that he did it then why was he buried apart from his family? Apparently Nancy’s parents and Chris’ parents have less faith in him then you do. After all, I know if I died I would want to be laid to rest next to my husband..unless of course he murdered me.

  11. Dominick says:

    Additionally, evil murdering “torturers” don’t sedate the victims they are supposedly torturing with Xanax and a bunch of other drugs. They kill them when they can get pleasure off the raw, biting pain they can cause their victims and the fear they can see in their eyes.

    Daniel was believed to be sedated at the time of his death and Nancy had enough in her to make her “feel good”. With so much crap in Benoit’s system, I doubt he was tortured either…except perhaps by the crimes he obviously committed.

  12. Jim Dandy says:

    Umm, where is the evidence? I haven’t seen any DNA evidence made public. I haven’y seen any fingerprint evidence made public. Benoit had Testosterone, Xanex and Hydrocodone in his system, but no alcohol. Who drank all that beer? Who drank the wine that was in the bottle near his body? Who let the dogs out of the “gated pool area”? What is the story with the Wiki entry? Why the false claim of “Fragile X” in the young son? Why the statement of “Double mudrer/suicide” so quickly after the bodies were discovered when no forensic tests could have been completed in such a short amount of time? Was there any fiber evidence? Was there any hair evidence? Do the bruses on Nancy’s back match Chris’s back? I’m sorry, but there are just too many questions yet to be answered to just take a DA’s word for it that this was murder/suicide. Didn’t we all learn that lesson with the Duke Lacross case?

  13. Dominick says:

    Perhaps he drank the beer and wine on Friday. By Monday it most likely would have been out of his system. If he was so suicidal I doubt he’d have cleaned up the weekend mess!

    Also, couldn’t Chris have let the dogs out before he killed himself? He did say the dogs were outside on a text message he supposedly sent. That would lead me to believe that Chris let them out and they spent all that time outside.

    The Duke Lacrosse case was racially motivated. A bunch of kids lives were ruined over a hooker. They were alive to defend themselves. Chris Benoit took the “pussy” way out and killed himself. The only defense he has, is his rabid fans who want to believe he’s a good guy, but all evidence that has become available is pointing to the fact that he’s not.

    Again I implore, why shoot your kid up with growth hormones? Even if he didn’t have Fragile X that is still sick. Further, where is the sign of struggle? According to police, there was no sign of a struggle. Chris Benoit was huge and had raging testosterone in his system….he’d be even harder to “fight”. So, you’re saying Kevin Sullivan (who is much older then Benoit) out “powered” him? Ya’ll are nuts to believe that Benoit is innocent…

    If comparing this case to anything…. I’d compare it to OJ. Maybe from beyond the grave Benoit will publish a book…”If I Did it 2″.

  14. Amber says:

    Sorry, but all the stuff coming out now only points in Chris’s favor. If people are so stupid as to believe everything they are told than we know how smart they are.
    Daniel didn’t have Fragile X, the WWE made it up, was PROVEN false on many accounts. Chris was being treated for testicular failure and the amount in him was normal for someone being treated for that and high blood pressure. His heart was perfectly normal, Dr. Kris Sperry confirmed all this.
    The address in the text was wrong, his zip code was incorrect, proving he didn’t send them and how can 2 texts be sent at the same time, on the same phone? simple they can’t… hmmm
    Dave Taylor knew Benoit’s neighbor Holly McFague and called her prior to Rich Herring calling the Benoit residence, why would they be in such contact with this neighbor of Chris’s. McFague stated that she didn’t really care much for Chris. She made up the story of Nancy talking to her about Daniel Benoit’s problems. As I stated earlier, Daniel did not have any pre-existing mental or physical impairment
    I would be suspicious of her possibly being involved afterwards.

  15. Kaz says:

    First off, I’d say there’s a bloody HUGE difference between Charles Manson and this guy.

    Second, there’s no proof that it was Benoit giving his son the hormones, or even that that’s what he was being injected with. No one’s proven what the child was being given, and no one’s proven who administered them to him. People will automatically point the finger at Benoit, despite the fact that Nancy spent a HELL of a lot more time with the child in privacy than he did, while hubby’s on the road 90% of the year.

    Third, it’s impossible for outsiders like us to say the “logical instinct” recation when you walk in on your dead family is to do a certain thing. Have you been there, in that exact situation? We’re amongst the living, and spectators in this. It’s way too easy to say what’s “logical” and what’s not, when we’re the ones viewing the aftermath, and not actually caught up in the heat of the moment.

  16. Ashtyn says:

    You’re right about Manson. After all, he was convicted on murders that he didn’t actually commit. No similarity there at all.

    There is no proof that he was giving his son hormones. There were proof of track marks that were not fresh and there was proof of Benoit taking steroids. In my book, 2+2=4. He would be the most likely suspect because he was the most obsessed with that sort of thing. As for Nancy, maybe she allowed it. Maybe she was in on it. Who knows? However, I would rather not speak ill of a victim, even one who had bad taste in men.

    As for logical instinct, I am a Psychology major and a former Criminal Justice (forensics) major. I know quite a little bit about crime scenes and logical instinct. I know if I walked in on my dead family the reaction (and the reaction of most) would be to flee. It would not be to head to a far away room or basement and decide to commit suicide. The average person would not feel the overwhelming grief that would come from this event. They would be in shock first and I am guessing that someone like Benoit (especially being on as many drugs as he was on) would have become enraged and wanted to find who did this to his family.

    His suicide is an admittance of guilt.

  17. Vince says:

    Excuse me, but Nancy Benoit and Sherri did not die on the same night, dummy. Furthermore, Sherri’s death has been ruled an accident. As far as Vince saying not to rush to judgment, he was referring to whether or not Benoit’s actions were roid rage, not whether or not Benoit committed murder. It’s 100% definite that Benoit committed two acts of murder. Kevin Sullivan is NOT a Satanist, and what Hulk Hogan says should be taken with a grain of salt. Hulk has also said in shoot interviews that Andre the Giant weighed 700 lbs. Your statement #13 is total conjecture. Benoit likely murdered his wife in a fit of rage and then thought for a while about what to do next. That explains why it was a while before he murdered his son and then committed suicide. Furthermore, Chris Benoit was not a religious person. NO SIGNS OF STRUGGLE were found on Benoit’s body. He wasn’t murdered. He committed suicide. This proves that there was no one else involved. As for what Benoit said at 5:35, it proves that he’s a LIAR, not that someone was telling him what to say over a phone. Seriously, your sleuthing skills are pathetic. You’re not studying to be a Crime Scene Investigator, and those text messages were sent while Benoit was still alive. He sent them. Seriously, you’re an idiot, and you’ve embarrassed yourself here. You lose. Benoit did it.

  18. Vince says:

    Benoit probably drank the beer a long time before he committesd suicide. The Wikipedia entry is nothing. A fan from Stamford, CT (not someone at WWE headquarters; the edit was not traced to WWE) made the edit based on rumors that he read on wrestling websites. People make silly edits all the time on Wikipedia.

  19. Vince says:

    Nothing points in Chris’ favor, Amber. Daniel not having Fragile X is totally irrelevant to the fact that Chris murdered his wife and son. WWE said that what Benoit did was an act of deliberation, not roid rage, so I don’t know how his testosterone levels “proves WWE wrong.” The address in the text was NOT wrong, moron. The zip code was correct. The text messages were not sent at the same time. They were sent seconds apart but on the same minute, MORON. Benoit is not innocent. You lose. Seriously, you just whored yourself.

  20. Vince says:

    You lose.

  21. Amber says:

    You’re just gonna sit there and say, oh well the DA said he did it that must mean he did, ok well fine
    Yes the zip was wrong idiot, his correct zip is 30214, NOT 30125, you get that by just typing his address
    Some were sent after he’d already died, what, did he just magically come back to life and send it? I don’t think so
    Again, where is this mysterious proof he fucking did it, huh, why is it so wrong to question the cops and news, ANOTHER THING, they are still waiting on the BLOOD AND DNA samples found by ALL 3 OF THE BENOIT’S BODIES, they still aren’t all completely sure he did this, I have proof straight from their mouths saying that!! on video AND on the Fayetteville news site. Everyone acts like they were fucking paid off to say “oh he did it, burn in hell murderer” WTF!
    FUCKING MEDIA SHEEP

  22. Amber says:

    You’re an idiot and you’ll believe everything the media says. How come Terry Funk or Mick Foley or someone else who’s had concussions and head injuries kill anyone yet? THERE IS NO FUCKING PROOF GEEZUS FUCKING CHRIST

  23. Dominick says:

    I can’t believe this is still being disputed. Amber, your link doesn’t work since your profile is set to private.

    Furthermore, where is this evidence (other than circumstantial BS that conspiracy theorists are using to stir up the idea Benoit is innocent on the web) that shows he didn’t kill his family?

    There is no proof someone else was in that home. As you said, the police “might be withholding evidence” that says he’s innocent. We’ll then how do you supposedly have this proof he is? Furthermore, who would kill a loser wrestler and his family? No offense…but Chris Benoit had known “mental” issues. He was pretty damn lame.

    What does it matter now? He’s dead anyway. It’s over. Nothing can be done to bring him back. Why is his death so much more important than all the truly “good” people in the world, who have their investigations shafted, because celebrities like Paris Hilton and -coughs- Chris Benoit are more “fun” to investigate for their crimes, deaths, & misdeeds?

  24. BizzyMomma says:

    OK, you’ve all had your say on this, BUT the one thing you are all forgetting is that Chris still has 2 living children, plus family who are all struggling to come to terms with this.

    Do you really think his kids want to see people saying some of the awful things they are about their father? Don’t you think these kids are tormented enough? How do you know they haven’t found all these horrendous comments about their father? No matter what you think of Chris, no matter what happened that truly awful week-end, and only Chris, Nancy and Daniel really will ever know, don’t you think you could show some compassion for the children left behind?? They are most likely having all sorts of problems themselves right now and certainly do not need to have the potential to read any of this, and let’s face it all these theories of yours are so easy to find merely by typing Chris Benoit into a search engine!

    Religous or not, Chris will have his judgement from his maker, for me there are way too many holes in this, and it is still an ongoing case anyway, the truth will out, eventually then there will be some of you who can say “Told You so!” and others who will have egg on their faces!!

  25. Just Curious says:

    Benoit Case is still open, DNA found near the bodies and sent out of state, +tampering evidence+. 3 months later from July 31, still no info on DNA-meaning the DNA didn’t match the any of the Benoits, meaning triple murder. If the Dna was from any of the Benoits, DNA info. would be shown to the public already.

  26. Just Curious says:

    testosterone was found in his system but for normal testosterone count go up. It’s not for body building, producing muscle. Next Steroid is pain antiflammation-cortisone–example.
    Next Steriod is for body building, producing muscle ect. Example-DECA
    http://www.steroid.com/ This site for body building
    So the media blowing things out of proportion once again to get ratings up, not researching for themselves.
    For I never done roids, never will. I studied on the subject long time, not for me at all. I want kids, keep my organs healthy.

  27. Amber says:

    Exactly, that is what I keep telling people, but no matter what it just doesn’t get through people’s thick heads.

  28. Amber says:

    100% agree, there is no evidence.

  29. Just Curious says:

    The murder conspiracy will be open to the public in two weeks by the authorities at local area. Plus more info, that authorities not given out. They are sticking to they’re guns its double murder, suicide. Heres the latest news from Fox Atlanta News.

  30. JUST COURIOUS says:

    Well its been 4 weeks no new info. on the Benoit Case.
    Meaning there was 3rd party involvement. 2 weeks ago I was told the Case open to the public short while then dissappeared, there was 3rd party involvement, plus the DNA matched the Sullivans, but all hearsay. No proof. But the Case is still OPEN… Sullivan Brothers dissappeared 2weeks ago also.

  31. Janice says:

    Studies prove that Kevin Sullivan is a satanist…he is a high ranking member of the Satanic Church. This was stated by Johnny Lee Angel (former pro wrestling champion) Now he is known as Rev. Johnny Lee Clary, world wide Evangelist. Vince, if you would actually read a lot of the evidence and piece everything together…you might then believe the way that we do. I am searching for the truth! yes, we are not crime scene investigators but, it doesn’t take a idiot to figure out clues or cries for help…text messages to people he don’t talk to everyday…why would he send his address to people he knows that they know where he lives with the wrong zip? Nancy had normal medication levels and had alcohol (0.184) in her system…alcohol enhances prescription drugs. Chris had high testosterone levels in his system 59:1 normal is 6:1, tests show just taken before he supposedly hung himself. Now you could down Chris all you want, but that is not going to change the way that we feel about him and we are not going to stop finding out the real truth. seriously, Vince I would love for you to say all the shit you’re telling us to Dean Malenko.

  32. Janice says:

    Vince, if you done your research before you accuse of people not knowing what the hell they are talking about…you might know that Kevin Sullivan is a high ranking member of a Satanic Church. Evidence shows that Nancy had percription drugs in her system (normal dosage level) and alcohol level of 0.184 (above normal level)…drinking alcohol while taking prescription drug increases it levels. Chris’s testosterone level was 59:1 normal levels are suppose to be 6:1. scientists stated that he injected this before he supposedly hung himself. His sending out his address to people he really didn’t talk to everyday also with the wrong zip code. Now, if you had evidence like this maybe I would believe you…but as I could tell you are stating just a opinion…opinios, that if you stated to Dean Malenko you would probably get your ass kicked

  33. JUST CURIOUS says:

    Chris Benoit case offically closed on Feb. 12 2008
    This case supposed to be closed around Nov. 22 2008, why the case wasn’t closed at that time, finding more evidence, still sticking thier guns it was double murder and suicide. Make me sick, they can’t tell the truth, Benoit was injected with testosterone before supposedly hung himself. Wrong Zip codes.. so on, so on

  34. Buhmbarsetic says:

    Why are some people this thick? Michael, from where I am standing, is merely entertaining the possibility that there might be more to it than they eye and ear see and hear from the media. If you are too thick to entertain any other option than suicide that is pretty worrying, cuz that pretty much means you are extremely opinionated and unfortunately very gullible as the media can not be trusted, never has been and probably never will.

    Could Benoit have done it? I suppose yes
    could it be a different story? I suppose yes.

    Keep an open mind without telling people (also the writer of this article has a very annoying way of bringing his opinion to the table, is that journalism nowadays? opinions?

    I want to see facts, bloodtests, maybe a CCTV camera round the corner that could see inside the house or perhaps even just the street, I want to see forensics looking at marks on the floor, tests on the kid in terms of the “steroid-marks” etcetc. Then I’ll have my say about it!

  35. Moo says:

    Chirs Benoit killed himself and his kid. All you homers that say he didn’t do it, or Kevin Sullivan did it are completely bonkers. Get help. Look around you, concussions, head trauma, etc. are causing HUGE problems in sports and entertainment and are finally just now getting the proper evaluation and treatment. Chris Benoit’s brain was that of an 80 year old man. He had beginning signs of dementia and Alzheimer’s. Chris Benoit and ONLY Chris Benoit killed his wife and young son. All the conspiracy theory nuts out there are just that – NUTS.

  36. Charles says:

    I feel bad for Kevin Sullivan. All these dumb retards saying he committed the crime. If you’re going to blame someone for something as heinous as this crime then you better get some good evidence.

  37. Andy says:

    Vince Mcmahon Is The muderer technically if you go back to when WCW ended Mcmahon changed his finishing move to the ” Diving headbutt” which caused this severe brain damage but we can all agree on one thing the benoit case is unsolved and it is too late for another hearing
