Chris Benoit, wife Nancy, and son Daniel had drugs in body

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

District Attorney Scott Ballard announced at a press conference the toxicology report findings in the bodies of Chris, Nancy, and Daniel Benoit.

Chris Benoit had a steroid (testosterone) and other drugs in his system when he killed his wife and young son last month and hanged himself afterwards. His body contained 10 times the normal level of testosterone, as well as the anti-anxiety drug Xanax and the painkiller hydrocodone. Benoit’s wife, Nancy, tested positive for Xanax, hydrocodone and the painkiller hydromorphone while their son Daniel Benoit had Xanax in his system.

Asked if the findings provide any insight into why Benoit acted as he did. “Specifically they do show that Daniel Benoit was sedated at the time he was murdered. Other than that, I don’t think they reveal anything at all,” said Dr. Kris Sperry, the chief medical examiner from the state of Georgia.

Federal authorities have charged Benoit’s personal physician, Dr. Phil Astin, with improperly prescribing painkillers and other drugs to two patients other than Benoit. He has pleaded not guilty.

    Nearly all of what you state happens to be astonishingly accurate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. Your article really did switch the light on for me as far as this particular topic goes. But at this time there is actually one point I am not too cozy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the main theme of the issue, permit me observe just what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.

    i think benoit did not kill his family and the text message is supposed to be a call for help
    first message is address and then the next is i think the killer and the co-worker shoud enter to the garage because he said the the dogs are in the enclosed pool area and then the adress again and again i bet his running out of time so he txt it again 3 times!!!
    as yo guys have said that there is a bible beside the dead body…. i think when he see his family dead he puts the bible and then killed himself because of depression!!!

    Well as a wrestling forum owner, me and my members has researched about this and it’s not roid rage. If you were a person that had roid rage at that time, would you leave a bible beside your dead son and wife? Concussions can affect your normal brain processes which Benoit I think suffered many concussions in his 22-year career. Yes, the allegations were true that Benoit used steroids but I gotta agree with you, “The only Person who could answer all our query is Benoit himself, but we could not get any answer from a dead man now can we? “.

  5. Could steroids be the only factor towards Chris Benoit’s action? I think, you, I, and the whole world have the same question, everybody wants to know, why Chris Benoit did what He did, unfortunately that question won’t be answered now not even tomorrow. The only Person who could answer all our query is Benoit himself, but we could not get any answer from a dead man now can we? Even his co-workers could not think that He is capable of doing those violent acts, but life yet made us believe things like that, hope the spirits of Nancy, Daniel would rest in peace…
