The Ottawa Sun has posted a story with new quotes from doctors claiming Chris Benoit’s brain was so badly damaged that he was “not responsible” for last year’s tragedy. Dr. Bennett Omalu told them, “Benoit’s brain looked like the brain of an individual suffering from a specific type of dementia normally seen in people in their 80s or 90s. We don’t think it (the murders) was steroid rage. We think it’s a different syndrome.”
