Chris BenoitIt keeps getting more bizarre with every detail ...

Chris Benoit sent a series of text messages to WWE co-workers, some from his dead wife's cell phone. According to WWE.com, all five text messages were sent between 3:53 AM and 3:58 AM on June 24. He then committed suicide.

The messages revealed that Benoit distributed information on where to find his remains, and the enclosed location of his attack dogs.

Below are the times and content of text messages Benoit sent to co-workers, as first reported by WWE:

  • 3:53 AM - Chris Benoit's cell phone: "My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane, Fayeteville Georgia. 30215"
  • 3:53 AM - Chris Benoit's cell phone: "The dogs are in the enclosed pool area. Garage side door is open."
  • 3:54 AM - Nancy Benoit's cell phone: "My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane. Fayeteville Georgia. 30215"
  • 3:55 AM - Nancy Benoit's cell phone: "My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane, Fayeteville Georgia. 30215"

There is something strange about using the word "Physical" .

Why type the exact same words into two different phones?

Who got these texts?

This was a sad and tragic event.

I want to speak to all of those who are getting ticked off that TMZ.com is reporting and creating posts about this event. Just remember these things:

1. You do not have to read what the owners of this site post.
2. They can post anything they want. It's call "Freedom of speech"
3. If you watch the news and read newspapers, you know that more than likely you are going to see more and more about what happened.
4. I don't think that it is fair for those to judge this website because of one article. It's not just strickly a gossip site. I have been coming here for a while, and the people that run this site are not bad people.

Please stop trying to hate the people who work hard to even bring this information to you. You know that they don't have to do this, and you know that you don't have to read it. Just keep in mind that everyone is entitled to their opinion and everyone is entitled to ignore something that they don't like. There is no need post your anger for everyone to see. In my opinion if you are concerned with the content or anything else that you see on this site. Just take it up with the owners of the website. There's a pretty blue link down at the bottom of the page that says "Contact".

Well that's my 2 cents for the evening.

MLD and Miller, there is no more to this story. The medical examiner or coroner did autopsies. The coroner can tell who died when by the conditions of the bodies.(rigor mortis,livor mortis,body temp,etc) So unless someone broke into his house,(that person would have to stay for the weekend) killed his wife(wouldnt you notice if someone was in your house killing your family members?) then killed his son,then convinced a very large man to hang himself ,this theory is impossible.And I do not believe someone drugged him and then hung him because Im sure with him being a wrestler he could defend himself.Plus it would have to be a fast action poison or drug to render him unconscious.Also you can rule out chloroform because he would have been able to fight whoever was trying to chloroform him.So its simple,he killed his wife and kid then hung himself.

I agree with you 100. I am just afraid the steroids use may over shadow the domestic violence. If he was not useing them he would not have done this? I have my doubts about that. His wife was leaveing, he could not allow that to happen. I am interested in knowing how much he had in his system at the time of his death.

I cant believe some folks are still in denial about this...they probably still think Elvis is alive,too.
Nancy Benoit feared for her life in the past,in '03 she filed for a restraining order and for a divorce,then retracted both.She said she feared for her lif and for the life of her son.
Chris was an abuser and very often,sadly,they end up killing their spouses.The warning signs were all there,but its too late now.Maybe for someone else in a similar situation though...
WWE has taken off all tributes to Benoit,as it should be.

There are tons of conspiracy theorists (whackos) on IMDB.com talking about this... There are SEVERAL who do not believe he did it. One even had the nerve to say the wife did it.. She was what---5'5" and 120 lbs..and he was 6' and 240 lbs of pure steroid-induced muscle.

Like she could get him to hang himself. The whole thing is ridiculous.

come to grips with it all. people kill their families all the time. It doesn't make sense for ANYONE to kill a 7 year old child... but someone did..and that someone was Chris Benoit!

Nance is a Dumb Ass    

If you don't like the story don't click on it, much less post something. Do you read over every friggin' word in the newspaper or a gossip magazine? No, you don't. You skip over the parts you are not interested in. Stop whining. You'll be bitching about something else tomorrow.

You can't say 'someone would' or 'wouldn't do this or that' because you watched them on tv!

For the last time, you knew his tv character...not him!

Soooo, he played a good guy on tv...big deal!

Personally, I judge others by how they really are.

This is real life, the real him!

As a huge Chris Benoit wrestling fan i think that it is ridiculous the way people keep going on about what he had done or all the condolences to him. What about the wife and the son? His wife was a part of wrestling too. Why dont we start think about those who are alive and suffering. Like his other kids knowing that 1 thier dad is now dead 2 their dad murdered their step mom and little brother. i think we should all stop crying about what he had done cause no one knows what had happened in the house or in his head and let the wife and the innocent CHILD that both suffered as well as lost their lives for only God knows why rest in peace. cause his wrestling legacy will not bring any of them back.

#65, terry.. you are right. The steroids might get more coverage-- but that might be a totally bad thing. People need to know the dangers of steroids, also. I can not believe people are actually on here telling TMZ what to write about. How insane!

Of course this is an unpleasant subject-- people are dead. But, there is a bigger message here--- domestic violence/abuse and drug abuse/steroid abuse.... Plus, WWE's continued "curse" of wrestlers dying YOUNG-- mostly due to suicide OR drug overdose.

There are bigger messages out there..and he IS a celebrity-- so this IS celebrity news.

If you do not like what TMZ blogs about-- start your own blog, and report stupid, irrelevent crap like what Paris Hilton wore when she left jail... or what she ate while in jail.

Hey #19 spoon smith! Save the Hell's Fires for tomorrow.

That was just on the news - that hypodermic needle marks were found in the son's arm and its believed that Chris Benoit was giving his son some sort of growth hormone because its believed that the boy had some form of dwarfism.

I only report this stuff.

These WWE murderer guys are too weird on their own to have to make up stuff!
