Police Investigating Benoit Family Deaths As Homicide

Ryan Clark

As you have noticed if you are watching RAW, the arena is empty tonight because WWE fans were turned away and tonight’s show was scrapped so that WWE could put on a 3 hour tribute to Chris Benoit.

This also allows several of the Superstars a chance to mourn. Very sad news in the wrestling world today. It is not known what will be done regarding tickets to tonight’s event.

News reports are quoting authorities as saying the death of Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy, and son Daniel, is being investigated as a homicide. Furthermore, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution altered the paragraph of their article on the Benoit family deaths. The third paragraph of the article originally read: “Officials would not say how the family died, other than to say they weren’t shot to death.” The third paragraph of the article has been changed to read: “Officials were investigating the deaths as a murder-suicide.” Furthermore, the lieutenant on the case, Lt. Tommy Pope, said the three were actually found at their home at around 2:30 p.m., not 4:00 p.m. like originally reported by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. The lieutenant said results of autopsies were expected Tuesday.
