    Wrestler Chris Benoit, Family Found Dead
    Pro Wrestler Chris Benoit, Wife, Son Found Dead; Police Investigate Deaths As Murder-Suicide
    By DEBBIE NEWBY
    The Associated Press
    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.

    WAGA-TV reported investigators believe the 40-year-old Benoit killed his wife, Nancy, and 7-year-old son, Daniel, over the weekend, then himself on Monday. The bodies were found in three rooms.

    World Wrestling Entertainment said on its Web site that it asked authorities to check on Benoit and his family after being alerted by friends who received "several curious text messages sent by Benoit early Sunday morning."

    Lead investigator Lt. Tommy Pope of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department told The Associated Press the deaths were being investigated as homicides, and that autopsies were to be performed 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 organization 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."

    Most wrestlers are insecure freaks with drug problems etc...

    Quite a few have commited suicide but not like this.

    I saw this program here about steroids concerning this guy Greg valentino who had the worlds largest biceps thanks to steroid abuse. He took so many his arm actually exploded as it turned into a giant spot basically full of pus.
    It was grim viewing as he performed self surgery on himself to get rid of the haematoma to be technical by using a syringe to get out all the blood and pus. He did it so many times the needle actually bent it woz sickening.

    But there was also a guy on the program who in the seventies used to enter bodybuilding competitions with arnold Schwarzenegger and thanks to steroid abuse then he now has the testosterone levels of a little girl and testicles the size of peanuts as he so eloquently put it.

    To get to the point just don't even contemplate doing them it will cause too many problems.
