    They found Chris Benoit, his wife and 7 yr old son dead in their home here is the artical that I just read:



    Wrestler Benoit, Wife and Son Found Dead
    By Associated Press
    2 hours ago


    In this March 29, 2004 file photo, provided by ...
    FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. - 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.

    I can't BELIEVE this. I turned it on to watch the "Memorial Service" for McMahon and kept seeing "remembering Chris Benoit" couldn't figure out for the life of me what was going on. Figured i'd check the website, and there was an email from my BIL Stating that Benoit and his family were found Dead. Went to the website and also saw the Article. This is SOO sad, i can't believe it. Can't believe the Whole family is gone..... Wonder if this is going to make McMahon give up his "Dead" Act. (yeah i DON'T believe that one)

    Update to the artical



    Wrestler Benoit, Wife and Son Found Dead
    By DEBBIE NEWBY, Associated Press Writer
    41 minutes ago


    In this undated photo released by World Wrestling Entertainment, ...
    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."

    So sad. If he did murder them it just goes to show how much pressure must be on the wrestlers. This is just such a sad event.

    So I guess McMahon isn't dead afterall? I figured it was just a publicity stunt when I didn't see anything in the "real" news- he should be ashamed of himself!

    This is a very sad story, I didn't know what was going on at first either, DH was flipping through the channels when we saw the memorial service and we both thought it was the McMahon thing too. Was shocked to hear this was a real tragedy. I don't follow wrestling but it is a sad situation...
