i am wondering if something was going on personally and maybe he killed his family and then himself. you would think someone like that would have a hi-tech security system in their home, which makes me believe it wasnt a robbery.

another article i read said that benoit pulled out of sundays pay per view match because of a "family emergency". when WWE people werent able to reach him, they were the ones who alerted police to search his home. it seems like those who worked with him seemed concerned something wrong may be going on. for whatever thats worth....

Quote:
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.

Maybe he was too lazy to use the security system?

EDIT:: Hmmm the above post came in right before I posted.... Perhaps there was a family issue.

i told my fiancee about this based on the WWE link i read in this thread and she didnt quite believe that it wasnt a typical WWE stunt, so i told her to google it and she read several things from legitimate newsites to me that make me wonder:

the only info that the police released was that they were not killed by gunfire, and something about possible carbon monoxide poisonning.

like i said, i hope for his fans and family he didnt "snap", but thats what it looks like to me with limited information. (im thinkingt he found out his wife was cheating on him and he went overboard but thats just speculation at this point)

More speculation... Perhaps his wife found out he was cheating on her while he's away at the Smackdown Raw Vengeance dohickey. Maybe she snapped.

very good points tony. but you know for some reason it seems that athletes tend to snap more than others. or maybe she did it, and not him. maybe he was cheating on her and she found out. but as you said its all speculation.

Police are treating this as a "possible double murder, suicide". WWE has reported this on their site as well.

Damn it. Chris was one of my favorite wrestlers and the only one besides Angle worth watching today. I don't want to speculate on what happened until all the facts are in but man...if Chris did do this, I have lost all respect for him.
