    Unhappy WWE Professional wrestler Chris Benoit and his entire family, found dead in their Atlanta home

    World Wrestling Entertainment is deeply saddened to report that today Chris Benoit and his family were found dead in their home. There are no further details at this time, other than the Benoit family residence is currently being investigated by local authorities.

    Tonight’s Raw on the USA Network will serve as a tribute to Chris Benoit and his family. WWE extends its sincerest thoughts and prayers to the Benoit family’s relatives and loved ones in this time of tragedy.

    Chris Benoit was unable to work Sunday night's Vengeance pay-per-view. The "Canadian Crippler" was replaced by Johnny Nitro, who ended up winning the ECW World Heavyweight Championship.

    WWE announcer Tazz briefly mentioned that Benoit was unable to make it due to "personal reasons." As reported earlier, Benoit had to fly home over the weekend to deal with a family emergency.

    hmm...there have been death story lines before..would be in VERY poor taste if this was a work
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

    This is NOT a work, unlike the current McMahon death storyline.

    Several of the Atlanta news sites are starting to post this information.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.

    The Atlanta Journal Constitution is now reporting it


    A 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 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.

    Benoit, 30, was a Canadian wrestler who most recently fought as part of the World Wrestling Entertainment.

    The organization said on its Web site said that Monday night's broadcast of "Raw" on the USA Network will "serve as a tribute to Chris Benoit and his family."

    Please let us know, Norm. I've temporarily changed my avatar to a pic of Chris Benoit. I've been a wrestling fan for 25 years (since I was 3 years old). Benoit was one of my favorites.

    I have a text in to a Fayette County Dispatcher and I am waiting her reply.

    They live about 15 minutes from me. I see them every once in a while.

    Norm357 has just sent me a PM. He is in the know on the details of the situation, and is awaiting the okay before he can disclose any information on LEF.

    Let me just say this whole thing is awful, and thanks to Norm for getting to the bottom of it.

    Fox 5 News is now reporting this as a triple homicide. This jibs with my info.

    From Fox 5 Atlanta...

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities said professional wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife and child were found slain Monday at their Fayette County home.

    Lieutenant Tommy Pope of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department said the three were found about 2:30 p.m., but he would release no other details.

    Pope said the deaths are being investigated as homicide, but the cause of death awaits autopsy results tomorrow.

    He would not say how the bodies were discovered, or who found them.

    The World Wrestling Entertainment said on its Website that the 40-year-old Benoit, his wife, Nancy, and his son Daniel were found dead but also had no other details.

    The WWE said that instead of its programming Monday night on USA Network, it would air a three-hour tribute to Benoit.
