This is sad.
A well-known professional wrestler and his family were found dead inside their house in Fayette County Monday afternoon.Authorities confirmed that Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy and their 7-year-old son, Daniel, were found dead at the home on Quarters and Redwine roads in Fayetteville about 4 p.m.
Officials would not say how the family died, other than to say they weren’t shot to death.
I’m not a wrestling fan, but when I was little, we used to have the WWF wrestlers over for supper — Jimmy Snuka, Tony Garea, Tito Santana, “Playboy” Buddy Rose, Rowdy Ronnie Piper, etc.
[Update by Jeff] According to DA Scott Ballard, it was a murder-suicide. Benoit apparently “killed his wife and son over the weekend and then himself sometime Monday.”
