FOX News reports that Chris Benoit and family found dead...

I don't believe it. I saw this story via a FOX News alert email.

For those of you who don't know Chris Benoit was a superstar currently in the WWE and was a wrestler in the defunct WCW. Tonight there will be a three hour tribute to the man known variously as the Canadian Crippler or the Rabid Wolverine.

Now I want to know what happened to them. Here's a piece of the story...
Professional wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy and their young son Daniel were found dead in their Georgia home Monday, according to a statement on the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Web site.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office is on the scene and, "an investigation is ongoing," a spokesperson told FOX News.

Benoit, 40, was supposed to appear on a pay-per-view event last night, but didn't. The WWE said there was a "family emergency" that prevented the former world heavyweight champ from attending.

The WWE said it was "deeply saddened," and that instead of its announced programming for tonight on USA Network, it will air a three-hour tribute to Benoit.

I guess we will have to wait for the details to come out, but do you think Benoit did this to his family?

To be honest that was my first though. Then again who knows. I look forward to the details.
