The Smoking Gun:
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.
Ok, Benoit used steroids ... duh. That still isn't the reason for the murders.
Astin, 52, was named today in a seven-count indictment charging him with the illegal distribution of substances like Percocet and Xanax between April 2004 and September 2005.
BINGO! Percocet and Xanax are what folks? Psychotropic drugs! It doesn't take a lot of research to find out that there is a freaky correlation between the use of psychotropic drugs and mental breakdowns leading to murder. If Benoit did in fact murder his family ... this would likely be the cause ... not steroids.
Police are also hypothesizing that Benoit used the Crippler Crossface to kill his son (picture below).
I also find that it is extremely suspicious that no one has addressed if Benoit was really at the hospital because of his family's throwing up. Remember, Benoit told a co-worker that he was at the hospital before the murders happened. Well, was he or not?
