Why would there have been Xanax found in the body of 7 year old Daniel Benoit? At the news conference they stated they found Xanex at11mg. Investigators seems to believe the drug was present in the 7 year old to use as a sedative prior to his death.

For Chris Benoit, they found Xanaz at 50 and hydrocordone at 45 mg/liter, both of Toxicologywhich were at therapeutic range and not toxic. Finally, they analyzed his urine for steroids and the only steroid drug they found was testosterone, a level of 207 mg/liter.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Tuesday that steroids and other drugs were found in the body of pro wrestler Chris Benoit, and prescription drugs were also found in the bodies of his wife and son.

Also found in Benoit were the drugs Xanax and hydrocodone, according to a statement from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The GBI said Benoit was negative for blood alcohol.

The statement said Nancy Benoit had Xanax, hydrocodone and hydromporphone in her body.

The son, Daniel Benoit had Xanax in his system, the statement said. The GBI said it could not perform tests for steroids or human growth hormones on the son because of lack of adequate amount of urine. (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

      This is just getting more bizarre. I am/was a big fan of Chris and just can’t understand why he would do this. A week or so ago on Larry King he had John Cena, Chris Jericho, Hulk Hogan (my favorite of all time) and a couple of other’s. All said that he (Benoit) would be the last person in the world that they would think of ever doing this. Jericho, who had known him the best said he still is having a hard time trying to figure why his friend would do this. He made mention that when another very good friend (Eddie Guerrero sp) died a few years back it seemed to take a lot out of Benoit. Why did this Happen, Jericho deadpanned! You’re not alone Jericho in feeling that! This is just a shame and I hope this doesn’t happen again. WWE is going to have a bullseye on it’s chest even moreso now. RIP Benoit family!

      #2 … Please stop drinking the wrestling Kool-Aide and read

      Finally, they analyzed his urine for steroids and the only steroid drug they found was testosterone, a level of 207 mg/liter.

      This is an abnormal amount. The articles that are being referenced are the ones that are referencing steroids. We reported testosterone.

      Maybe you should learn how to read instead of criticizing. Indentations and links would be what others are stating.

      Also he did have steroids in him accd to the dr. What was said that he did not have anabolic steroids.
      As per Dr. Badden, Benoit had 10x’s the normal ration of testosterone in his body. Steroids were found in the home.
      Yea, no steroids here. Now go back to your CT mansion Mr McMahon.

      “Although testosterone was found in Christopher Benoit’s urine, there is no evidence of any other of the illegal types of steroids, or the whole laundry list of anabolic steroids that are out there to be used,” Sperry said, adding, “the presence of the testosterone alone even could be an indicator that he was being treated for testicular insufficiency.”,2933,289649,00.html

      Bottom line; Steroids did NOT cause this to happen.

      Hey Hitman & Lee,

      I never said anything about steroids. And NO, I know they (streoids) didn’t cause this to happen. I was merely pointing out that this is a tragedy and like the rest of us I cannot figure out why this happened.

      WHO CARES? This man tortured and killed his wife and his special needs’ son! Talk an overarching need to PROVE his masculinity!

      I have very limited sympathy for Mr.Benoit. Yes, he was a troubled soul. May God have mercy on him. But that’s it – I’m done cry’in!!
