This is creepy.

UPDATE: Wikipedia user claims it was a “terrible coincidence.

A user of the Web site Wikipedia has confessed to making edits to pro wrestler Chris Benoit’s profile mentioning the death of Benoit’s wife before authorities had found her body.

The anonymous user acknowledged in a lengthy post added to the Web site early Friday being “deeply sorry” and called the situation a “terrible coincidence.”

Fox News: Web Time Stamps Indicate Benoit Death Reported About 14 Hours Before Police Found Bodies

Employees at said the posting went live on their site on Monday at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. Police, however, said they found the bodies Monday at 2:30 p.m. EDT.’s computers are set to record Standard and Universal Time, a spokesman told

The posting reads: “Chris Benoit was replaced by [[Johnny Nitro]] for the ECW Championship match at Vengeance, as Benoit was not there due to personal issues, stemming from the death of his wife Nancy.”

The posting was apparently made in reference to Benoit’s scheduled appearance on Sunday night at an Extreme Championship Wrestling event in Texas, with the last phrase noted in red to indicate an edit made to the original entry.

    It’s odd that the posting was traced to the HQ of WWE. Did someone at the home office know more than has been told? Were those requests for a welfare visit actually due to some more info than just odd text messages? Inquiring minds want to know.
