I eluded to this a little yesterday when the story broke. Unfortunately, it was confirmed (except the religious part) today. Benoit did, in fact, murder his family before killing himself.
They are looking into steroids as a cause, but that is crap. Benoit has been wrestling for a very long time, and has maintained a similar physic for years. Yet he still has a great reputation as a very friendly guy ... both to fans, and his fellow wrestlers alike.
Steroids aren't responsible for this at all, and I'm saddened that this tragedy will be exploited by the anti-steroid lobby to lie to the public about the side effects of steroids. Some steroids do have roid rage symptoms, but they are well known, and often avoided by athletes. Other steroids will give you the same results without the side effects.
