Anyone Read This? Sad

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070626/.../wrestler_dead

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. - WWE wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife, and son were found dead Monday and police said they were investigating the deaths as a murder-suicide. Detective Bo Turner told television station WAGA that the case was being treated as a murder-suicide, but said that couldn't be confirmed until evidence was examined by a crime lab.

The station said that investigators believe the 40-year-old Benoit killed his wife, Nancy, and 7-year-old son, Daniel, over the weekend, then himself on Monday. A neighbor called police, and the bodies were found in three rooms.

Lead investigator Lt. Tommy Pope, of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department, told The Associated Press the deaths were being investigated as homicide, and that the causes of death awaited autopsy results on Tuesday. Pope said the bodies were discovered about 2:30 p.m., but refused to release details.

The house is in a secluded neighborhood set back about 60 yards off a gravel road, surrounded by stacked stone wall and a double-iron gate. On Monday night, the house was dark except for a few outside lights. There was a police car in front, along with two uniformed officers.

Benoit was a former world heavyweight and Intercontinental champion. He also held several tag-team titles during 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."

The native of Canada 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.

"My relationship with Chris has extended many years and I consider him a great friend," Carl DeMarco, the president of WWE Canada, said in a statement. "Chris was always first-class warm, friendly, caring and professional one of the best in our business."

not into wrestling since i was a kid but Benoit was a great guy. got to meet him once and he was one of the nicest people i ever met. I dont think he did steroids if you see pics of him when he was young he was always big like that even as a kid. be with the Benoit family!

almost seems unheard of that he did this. from what I have seen in the past of him and what others thought of him he has never been that type of person and it seems conspiquous. but I have been suprised by some close friends so who knows.

Ah yeah, I forgot he was married to her also. She was in the wrestling scene as well. I remember her back from the WCW days.

Crazy stuff. Things like this happen ALL the time but it's more of a shock when it's someone famous/popular like that.

I don't feel bad for him. I hope it's hot in . I feel bad for his wife and kid. She was bound before strangled, so it doesn't sound like they were fighting and he accidentally hurt her in a rage. Binding her wrists and ankles spells premeditation. As far as the kid goes... that me off. A 7 yr old is innoncent.

And of course, even though he's a crazy criminal, people are paying TRIBUTE to him. Apparently he wasn't a good guy people... stop acting like he's a big loss. It's just too bad he didn't off himself before he killed two people.

>:-(

RIP his wife and son. I never understood what would drive a person to this. If you are so miserable, take yourself out, not the ppl you love also. So sad. And what me off is that they are trying to cover up for him by saying it was the roids. Like that somehow makes it, not ok, but at least somewhat better.
