-Dave gave a description of the common profile of men who kill their whole families and it was eerily similar to Benoit (hard working, driven, experienced a loss, a few friends but no real support system, anxiety, etc."
this all makes a hell of a lot more sense than the theory that benoit went on some prolonged roid rage fueled killing spree.

but of course it isn't sexy, so the media won't play it up like they have with the juice.

I agree with this theory to a certain extent. Chris did have a support system, but he didn't wish to fully utilize it. Chris's major problem was that he was an extremely private man, so he didn't really let too many of his close friends in on his troubles at home with Nancy and with Daniel's condtion.
Also, if you mix enough drugs together, bad things are going to happen. The police found empty beer bottles, an empty wine bottle, bottles of prescription painkillers as well as legally prescribed steriods.
I agree, you can't just blow this whole thing off and say it was 'roid rage. Chris had other problems as well.

While this may not be a case of "rage" steroids most certainly still could have contributed. ( the paranoia, depression, etc.) It strikes me as strange that so many want to write off steroid abuse, even though they were "prescribed", in this case. This man obviously had a litany of problems he was attempting to deal with. While this profile from Dave, whoever he is, seems to fit Benoit, wouldn't it be irresponsible not to look into the combination of medication he was on? To me, this isn't a matter of "sexy" or not sexy. What was that quack doctor prescribing for this guy and how did it affect his already unstable state of mind?

Haven't they backed off the steroid theory yet? I haven't been watching any news segments on this story in the past few days. It sure seems like the more details and background that comes out tends to negate the "roid rage" thing.

Although yeah, it's the news channels we're talking about, so I should be surprised if they HAVE backed away from that angle.

is it possible that his use of steroids created a chemical imbalance that aided in this whole episode? yes... just like it's possible that the xanax he was supposedly taking did the same thing, or that the combination of a variety of drugs he was taking... but the media has been portraying this as just about steroids... that he snapped because of roid rage... which is clearly not the case.

he was taking a number of prescribed medications, any one of which could have lead to the imbalance that, when combined with the stress of his job and the very real issues between him and his wife regarding their son, caused him to go off the deep end. what the media should have done is waited for the toxicology reports to come back before they jumped to their usual conclusions... but, of course, by the time the toxicology report comes back, they'll have moved on to something else... regardless of what it says.

Thanks for the link. I didn't know if he was a doctor, psychologist, or what. I guess he qualifies as an "or what."

Steroids have been associated with professional wrestling for as long as I can remember. Vince McMahon jumped the gun by issuing his statement about this incident having nothing to do with steroids. My point was not to suggest that the only drug that could have caused this was a steroid but that to exclude steroids from this case would be irresponsible. While the media seemed to be focusing on "roid rage" at first they now have acknowledged that there were other serious issues in Benoits life. Who knows what combining other medication will do. Not to mention serious emotional distress. The shady doctor business really bothers me.

That's a lot of steroids.

Quote:
Wrestler Chris Benoit was identified by Drug Enforcement Administration agents as an "excessive purchaser of injectable steroids" who, over the past year, was prescribed a 10-month supply of anabolic steroids every three to four weeks by a Georgia doctor who was indicted today on federal charges.

I don't want to say one way or the other. I understand that the actions that took place were possibly too pre-meditated or whatever.

However, could it possibly be that the placing of the bible etc. were all done after the "rage" took place. Perhaps as in, he did what he did enraged, and then the guilt came on?

I am not on either side. I'm just thinking on both sides. To me, you cannot discount either as a possibility. I hate that this is my first post on this. It is such a sad story and I don't want to start an argument. I just see a possibility. But we probably will never know.

I heard today that his wife had done the same thing Nicole Simpson did. Put photos of her beaten body somewhere safe, and left a note saying if something happened to her, go straight to Chris.

Sounds like more than 'roids to me.

Maybe it's time to start castrating males. We are truly a disgusting lot, sad to say.

^Agreed. And I still can't get over the fact that he allegedly gave his 7-year-old the Crippler Crossface, which was his submission hold.

When I read that my heart just sank. I literally felt sick to my stomach.

I didn't mean my post to imply that I think it was roid rage. I just found it shocking that he was prescribed that much. The first thought that came to my mind was that he was the middle man in some distribution scheme.

So apparently his son did not have Fragile X:

Quote:
ATLANTA (AP) — A prosecutor investigating pro wrestler Chris Benoit, who killed his wife and son and committed suicide, is questioning World Wrestling Entertainment's early assertion that the boy had a form of mental retardation called Fragile X syndrome.
A spokesperson for WWE — which shortly after the killings deflected speculation about steroids by saying the Benoits had argued over whether the wrestler should stay home more to take care of the 7-year-old son — also backed away Tuesday from its statements about the boy's diagnosis.

Fayette County prosecutor Scott Ballard said in a news release Tuesday that some of the boy's medical records have been reviewed and "they do not mention any pre-existing mental or physical impairment."

Authorities to release toxicology results in Benoit case

The Associated Press - ATLANTA

The results of toxicology tests conducted on the body of former pro wrestler Chris Benoit will be revealed at a press conference Tuesday at 2:30 p.m., Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead said.

The test results are expected to shed more light on Benoit's last moments. Authorities said Benoit killed his wife and seven-year-old son in their metro Atlanta home last month, placed Bibles next to their bodies and then hanged himself on the cable of a weight machine.

Anabolic steroids were found in the Benoits' gated home, leading officials to wonder if the drugs played a role in the killings. Some experts believe steroids can cause paranoia, depression and violent outbursts known as "roid rage."

Toxicology tests have been conducted on Benoit's body to determine if steroids or other drugs were present. Blood-alcohol tests also were conducted on his body, and chemical tests were conducted on the bodies of the wife and son.

The results of the test will released by Dr. Kris Sperry, the state's chief medical examiner, said Bankhead.

Fueling the speculation that steroids may have been involved in the deaths, federal authorities charged Benoit's personal physician, Dr. Phil Astin, with improperly prescribing painkillers and other drugs to two patients other than Benoit. He has pleaded not guilty.

Investigators office has also been raided Astin's office several times since the deaths, seizing prescription records and other medical documents.

Before he was charged, Astin told the AP he prescribed testosterone for Benoit, a longtime friend, in the past. He would not say what, if any, medications he prescribed when Benoit visited his office June 22, the day authorities believe Benoit killed his wife.

Hopefully we should know soon.

They just had the press conference and the only "steroid" of any sort found on Benoit was testosterone. No other steroids were found. Hydrocodone was found in both Chris and Nancy, but only in moderate levels. Xanex was found in Chris, Nancy and Daniel. It is believed that Chris sedated Daniel before he killed him. Nancy's BAC was measured at .184, so she is the one who had been drinking, not Chris. So this whole "roid rage" thing is hogwash. Chris Benoit simply snapped and killed his family and himself.
