Wrestler Chris Benoit, wife and child found dead
FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. - Pro wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife and 7-year-old son were found slain Monday at their Fayette County home, authorities said.
Sheriff's Lt. Tommy Pope said the three were found about 2:30 p.m., but he would release no other details about the deaths at the house near White Water Country Club.
Pope said the deaths were being investigated as homicides, but said the cause of death awaits autopsy results on Tuesday.
He would not say how the bodies were discovered, or who found them.
The World Wrestling Entertainment said on its Website that Benoit, 40, his wife, Nancy, and son, who was named Daniel, were found dead but also had no other details.
It still would have been scrutinized. Someone even thought that maybe the site had been hacked.Hollywood_mIRC said:This is exactly why you don't do a ****ing tasteless death storyline WWE. This is why.
Now while most wreslting fans can tell what is storyline and what isn't - looking at the first people who who came in who don't watch wrestling bashing this as fake can't tell the difference. WWE's storylines and bad taste have degenerated down to the point where the average Joe thinks a real death is a joke.
Snaku said:Anybody have a link to a video of Edge & Christian singing Benoit's theme on kazoos? I think that'd make me feel a little better, and put a smile on my face. Raw is really depressing me right now.
Darko said:havent watched wrestling in years but he was always one of my favorites, i hope tog god this isnt part of some ****ing storyline
Onix said:I've never seen him serious like that before. He directly referred to his own faked death as 'his character's' ... and directly called Chris's peers 'performers'.
He was about to cry at the end.
