Benoit and Son

6/28/2007 12:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is the adorable child Chris Benoit suffocated before killing himself. This picture of Benoit and son Daniel was taken at a 2004 event honoring Chris.

Daniel Benoit suffered from Fragile X Syndrome, a chromosomal defect that causes autism-like behaviors, language delays and other physical/sensory problems, afflicting 1 in 3600 males and 1 in 4-6 thousand females.

The media needs to stop trying to find an excuse for what this monster did and making excuses for his behavior. This was a sick twisted man who performed in the ring. He was a character in the ring.

This makes me sick. I'm glad he killed himself. Too bad he took two other innocent people with him.

I'm so sick of hearing about this. I see this picture and it fills me not only with revulsion for what Benoit did, but for the fact that people won't just leave it alone. Let the friends and family grieve, for crying out loud. This being brought up over and over is torture and it needs to come to a close.

Please - when will it stop????

He couldn't just off himself? Killing an innocent baby is horrendous.

its a sad outcome....but most of us make decisions that wont put us in a situation like that in the first place. Its not news to anyone with a head on their shoulders that steroids will alter you physically AND mentally. He knew that, he decided that vanity and greed were more important....its a terrible shame his family had to pay the ultimate price for this guys lack of integrity

good work again tmz as always , as for finding excuses to see why he did it.. i think thats the only important thing left in this sad tale. Once recognized the people in power should do all they can to make sure it happens as rarely as possible

Being a parent, I had to try to explain this to my 9 year old son how it is someone he saw on television, who did cool things in a wrestling ring, and seemed to have it "all" could be capable of such an act. The bottom line is Mr.Benoit crossed aline somewhere in his mind that found this act to be acceptable. The reporting of this incident is like many others dating back to the Jeffrey Dahmer case in which America wasn't interested in how many people Mr. Dahmer killed but if he actually ate them or not. I feel that we need to keep in mind that Mr. Benoit was sick and probably had been for sometime.

I think it's disgusting to even post this photo and article. Let this child rest in peace and don't use photos of him for your own gain. I'm extremely disappointed in TMZ for stooping this low and even more disappointed in myself for frequenting a site that chooses to exploit the tragic murder of an innocent child.
