Cops eye 'roid rage in wrestler's murder-suicide

Ex-star Benoit killed wife, son, self in grisly crime spread out over weekend

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. - Pro wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife, suffocated his 7-year-old son and placed a Bible next to their bodies before hanging himself with a weight-machine pulley, authorities said Tuesday.
Investigators found anabolic steroids in the house and want to know whether the muscle man nicknamed “The Canadian Crippler” was unhinged by the bodybuilding drugs, which can cause paranoia, depression and explosive outbursts known as “roid rage.”

This is just so sad. My thoughts and prayers go out to those left behind in this tragedy.

Hi Billy,
great to see you - it's been a long time! This is really very sad, especially if they do find that it was due to the steroids. Way to much pressure to perform and be so pumped all the time. Yes,some Candadians have done very well in wrestling. Thank you Billy for visiting and taking the time to comment.
