Death of Chris Benoit's wife posted on Wikipedia 14 hours prior to body being found

Death of Nancy Benoit rumour posted on Wikipedia hours prior to body being found

I was reading around Wikinews last night and noticed a comment placed on the article Professional wrestler Chris Benoit and family found dead that was showing an edit made to Wikipedia on the death of Chris Benoit's wife.

After an investigation, Wikinews learned that anonymous edits on the Wikipedia article Chris Benoit were added about the death of his wife Nancy Benoit 14 hours before police entered the Benoit home to find the former professional World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Canadian wrestler and his family dead.

The first sign that it was possible that the WWE had leaked, or attempted to leak the information was by an anonymous edit from IP address 69.120.111.23 using the Internet service provider Optimum Online which is located in Connecticut, the world headquarters of the WWE. A second edit was made just under one hour later by 125.63.148.173 using unwiredAustralia.com.au, a wireless Internet service provider in Australia.

Both edits were made at least 13-14 hours prior to police finding the bodies and being called to the Benoit residence by the WWE. However; the investigation cannot confirm that the first edit was made using a WWE computer or network. Both edits were reversed and later added once the information was confirmed.

I must point out that this is not the first time Benoit's article has been edited to show false or unsourced information, as the article's edit history indicates a long history of promotional spam and vandalism.

Soon after the edits were made, the authorities, according to WIkipedia, were notified of this information, but it is not yet known if authorities looked into these claims or investigated them.

At the moment, Wikinews is unable to conclude whether the anonymous editors had inside information about the death of Nancy Benoit, and it is not known if the edits were made by a WWE employee or someone closely affiliated with the WWE or the murder investigation.

The investigation is on going.

Perhaps it was a setup? As a fan of Benoit's wrestling career, I'd really prefer to believe that these deaths were the result of some sinister conspiracy rather than Chris just losing it.

How could the WWE have known about the deaths on Sunday night before the police discovered the bodies? Fishy indeed. Reminds me of the Kurt Cobain "suicide."

OK This is just plain CREEPY at this time.

Very strange Coincidence???

Could it be as simple as the difference in time zones?

I'd be more likely to suspect that someone else was in that house...unless someone in the WWE had a hand in it. I don't believe the events surrounding the issue are as simple as they are being made out to be. I personally think there's alot more to this than they are letting on and that they are simply trying to keep anyone who may know something about the issue from knowing they are being looked at. You don't just snap at your wife and kill your mentally handicapped child in the process. It doesn't play out to me.

you know... maybe, just maybe, it was Chris Benoit who did the editing?

Anonymous said...

For those who are fans of conspiracy theories, it was Chavo who was the last known person to have seen Eddie alive, and he was the last person outside of the three people who are now dead to see Chris alive. (Chavo stated on his goodbye to Chris on Monday nights RAW that he stayed at the Benoit household Friday night... wasn't that the same night Benoit allegedly killed his wife?

Anonymous said...

why is it so hard to believe that even someone like Chris could be pushed over the edge and loose it? He was only a man, and it happens everyday, marriage troubles, a son with issues, a job in the big time, it is quite possible he just was drove over the edge.

Anonymous said...

I've been wondering about Chavo too.

What if it is all just another WWE story-line ??

FOX News http://www.foxnews.com is now reporting that IT broke this story, when in all actuality, Wikinews did.

please to those people who are still mad at chris benoit and to those who are still blaming him,please stop it chris is now already dead,let him rest in peace

Maybe they where killed by WWE when threatening to expose wrestling as fake.

Anonymous said...

Call it a hunch, but I say Chris killed his wife, then called WWE to tell them she died (obviously NOT that he killed her), and that he would not be performing for some time. They then made the edit.

Once the truth came out, they reversed the edits to cover up the fact that they knew. Why? Who knows?

Police did say that Chris was in the house for over a day after he killed them before hanging himself.

Anonymous said...

maybe its a new serial killer that watches wikipedia for fake death stories and then makes them happen

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry but as far as Chris being able to post the link to Wikkipedia & make edits (Let's not forget Chris Benoit lived in Fayetteville,GA) Not Stamford Conn. Not to mention the likelyhood of his being able to do so under such a state of mind frame would seem totally impossible! May as well say Owen hart edited it or why not just say Elvis Presley did it & be done with it? It makes as much sense to me!About as much sense as believing the fact "he was fine father's day in state of mind etc." According to Michael Benoit his father & then days later kills himself & his entire family??Calls were made repeatedly from the Benoit home stating the address & that dogs were in the back pool area but..it's not a distress call & kidnapping is not an option or a possiblity?? Afterall doesn't a muscular type such as even "Chris Benoit" feel threatened by guns or bombs etc? Or are some types immune to & totally indestructable? I myself have never met such a person! Or does the fact of the WWE's wealth& power as well as the Mcmahon familys' scare even the press & authorities? I think it is all very possible! Afterall look at the blank links now found online which did contain "Benoit" information. One has to wonder who & why they were removed!

Anonymous said...

My opinion is that dead people can't talk but then again anything could have happened.I personally think that wrestler's during the year's are dying like if there was this type of mafia or organization. I'm a wrestling fan & it's so weird seen are wrestlers mysteriously dying at their prime & there death even chris to me don't make any sense, so i think their should be an investigation on wwe wrestlers who have passed away & if it's possible reopen every single case.

this doesnt add up something strange is going on here i just hope they uncover the truth not some cover up

The future of HipHop said...

I would like to first state that if Chris Benoit indeed has killed his family, i am ashamed. A mans legacy can easily be tainted by one event. Chris was an amazing man with amazing talent. His friends considered him one of the most respected men they have ever known, his fans see him as the best professional wrestler to ever have lived, but now the world sees him as a man too weak to deal with his demons, a man who wasn't strong enough to cope with family problems. If Chris is guilty of murder, his career deserves the negative publicity and his life will be overshadowed by his death.

The WWE dispises internet blogging and many wrestlers have lashed out at internet reporters in the past. perhaps because internet reporters dont know what they are talking about? Perhaps, the know all too well. Many "facts" seem out of place with the Benoit Murder investigation. Chavo Guerrero is being said to have been the last person to have seen both Eddie Guerrero and Benoit before their tragic deaths. A very hard coincidence to accept. Another thing that seems to raise eyebrows is how the internet "leaked" the murder before police even found the bodies. Also, the text messages seemed anonymous and very impersonal, almost as if the location was only sent out in order to find the bodies. If Benoit did indeed kill his family, then himself, why wouldn't he sent a meaningful goodbye?

This entire post is 100% my personal opinion. This is not based on fact as I have no part in the media, or the investigation and did not know chris personally.

I wouldn't be surprised if there is much more to this story, i do feel others are involved and know more than the media does about this very unfortunate event.

viagra said...

Disaster is likely to wreak havoc in the life of an individual as soon as he becomes victim to erectile dysfunction and the most significant dreadful consequence of erectile dysfunction is that the afflicted man becomes incapable of facilitating erections required for sexual intercourse. The sexual vacuum resulted from erectile dysfunction prompts the sufferer to opt for anti-impotency pills, most especially the viagra medication that was approved by FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) as a clinically effective drug to cure erectile dysfunction in men. Viagra is meant to be administered by patients only after availing of viagra prescription from the doctor. The prescription for Viagra provided by the doctor spells out that the patient suffering from erectile dysfunction seriously need Viagra to treat his disorder and further authorizes the patient to avail of Viagra from the pharmacist.
