Tmz is lame    

Please, TMZ. Have the decency to stop reporting about this horrific tragedy on your celebrity gossip site.

It's sick.

It seems to me, from the text messages sent, he was delusional and not thinking clearly. "My physical address..." That looks like he was indicating his/their soul(s) were else where.

TMZ, I check your site out for Celeb gossip. This is over the top. Please stop.

A woman. A WIFE, A MOTHER was murdered. Strangled. Her 7 year old son had to live through it and was murdered by his FATHER the next day.

This is NOT gossip. Please stop.

Please, please, stop.

This is so sad and tragic... please don't post this story on your site and sensationalize it.... think about it and how completely wrong this is. I feel sick everytime I think about what the wife and little boy went though... what a sad way to die for all three of them. This is a light celebrity gossip site - please leave it at that!!

Obviousily he was crying for help and no one replied. This is too sick to be published.

But of course his suicide is "more likely premeditated, ..Helloooo? ...Any person who kill themselves will "premeditate" how to do it, a gun. a knife, pills, etc, etc....
Unless of course is an accident, but then it will not be a suicide, right? According to the call's time frame he had more than 2 hours to think about it. I'm glad he did it. That's the least he could do.

There is more to this than meets the eye. Like how someone with a Stamford CT IP addy could post on wikipedia--more than 18 hours BEFORE the bodies were found--that Benoit missed the match Sun b/c of his wife's death?

This isn't over, I promise. And I don't think it's as simple as a double-murder/suicide.

Such a tragedy should not be put in the same category as gossip. My condolenses to the families and the WWE.

Well Tmz, Are you done exploiting Benoit and his family's gruesome deaths by now? Haven't you had your kicks already.

Satan Owns Chris Benoit    

I want to personally thank Harvey and TMZ for having the balls to report this. Chris Benoit will forever be remembered as an incredible douche bag who lacked the courage to pay for his sins. He is a pussy. A coward. A putz.

I just heard that Benoit was injecting his son with hypodermic needles! It seems the kid was a dwarf and Benoit must have been injecting him with growth hormones. Not sure if it was by doctor's orders or just something Benoit decided to do since the kid, at 7, was "small".

Just how odd do you have to be to be in the WWE?

Yo don have to click into the artical if it is too sick for you that is your choice. You cant control what the site offers, by putting your stamp of approval on it or not. Just dont read it
.Dont turn on the news shows, the radio. It's all over the place and it's that simple to prevent yourself from being exposed to it.
