Case Ref : 20070724, Benoit, Chris

Official Narrative

Christopher Michael Benoit was a Canadian professional wrestler. He worked for various pro-wrestling promotions during his 22-year career including most notably the World Wrestling Federation/World Wrestling Entertainment (WWF/WWE), World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) in the U.S. and for New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) in Japan. In a three-day double-murder and suicide, Benoit murdered his wife in their residence on June 22, 2007, killed his 7-year-old son on June 23, and committed suicide on June 24. Subsequent research undertaken by the Sports Legacy Institute (now the Concussion Legacy Foundation) suggested that depression and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a condition of brain damage, from numerous concussions that Benoit had sustained during his professional wrestling career were both likely contributing factors of the crimes.

There is a double murder suicide that has bug me and a lot of other people for years. The case is of an American Professional Wrestling Superstar called Chris Benoit who worked for Professional Wrestling company WWE. He reportedly killed his wife, then his son, then himself on 3 separate days. The story is suspicious in so many ways, from strange text messages to friends, his wife's death posted on the internet a day before the she was killed, the way he killed himself some believe not possible, also the police wrapped up the case pretty damn quick in a lot of peoples opinion. There is a lot more but this E-mail is already going to long. I do know that your a very busy man and its not maybe the most important case in the world but there is a lot about the official story that is very suspicious, even if you had researchers in America who could do a bit of digging (easier said than done i know) So i just wanted to run it by you anyway.

I would really love u to look into and talk about the Chris Benoit case it was stated as a double murder suicide but looking just below the surface u could quickly prove that wrong. Hope you do look into this case to hopefully bring justice/closure to his/her family.
