There is something already amiss about the Benoit family death, besides it being a full-on murder.

Canadian WWE pro wrestler Chris Benoit murdered his wife, Nancy, and son, Daniel, during a three day period in the summer of 2007. Afterwards, Benoit hanged himself in their Fayetteville, GA home. Local police discovered the bodies at 2:30 PM on June 25th. They then notified WWE of what had happened at 4:15 PM on that very same day.

However, this is where the story takes a strange turn...

Mysteriously, the following quote was added to Benoit's Wikipedia page:

"Chris Benoit was replaced by Johnny Nitro for the ECW World Championship match at Vengeance, as Benoit was not there due to personal issues, stemming from the death of his wife Nancy."

Although the Benoit family was found at 2:30 PM, this sentence had been added to his page at 12:01 AM on June 25th, a whole fourteen hours before Nancy's body was even discovered by police.

The IP address was later traced to Stamford, CT, which strangely is where the WWE headquarters is located. Coincidence? Or is something more sinister at play?

Is there an explanation?

After an investigation, the police concluded that it was merely a grave coincidence.

Or was it? Did an internal someone know that Benoit was dead half a day before police even knew? The possibilities are endless and it seems we will never know what really occurred.

Some claim that a young man had been writing random facts throughout a myriad of Wiki pages, and coincidentally wrote that Nancy had died. Others say this young man had heard about Benoit claiming his wife and son were sick from food poisoning, and therefore assumed Nancy was dead when Benoit didn't end up fighting in the PPV event.

However, Benoit was known as being insanely hardcore in the WWE world. He didn't seem like the kind of man who would miss a PPV, especially if his wife and son were solely ill from food upsetting their stomachs. In general, it is all too suspicious.
