I know I said I wouldn't bring this up again, but I ran across this today and had to post it.
Okay, it's the Globe. That doesn't exactly scream " I was right!" But hey, now days I trust the Globe about as much as Fox News.
One thing further though....
In the Press Conference done by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation at 2:30 p.m. EDT on July 17, 2007, it was announced that three different drugs were found in Nancy Benoit's system, those being hydrocodone, hydromorphone and xanax. A blood-alcohol level was found at 0.184, which could be due to the decompositional process. Dr. Sperry added it was impossible to say whether any of the blood findings was due to ingestion of alcohol or the post-mortem process. It was also ruled out that Nancy was sedated by Chris before she was murdered.
Xanax was found in Daniel Benoit's system. Scott Ballard noted this was not a drug that would be given to a child under normal circumstances. It is believed that Daniel was sedated prior to being murdered, with Dr. Sperry ruling out that Daniel died of a drug overdose. However, The GBI said in the Press Conference that it could not perform tests for steroids or human growth hormones on Daniel because of a lack of urine.
Xanax was also found in Chris Benoit's system, along with hydrocodone and elevated levels of testosterone found in his urine. No artificial steroids were found in Chris' urine, and no evidence of GHB was found either. Benoit also tested negative for blood alcohol.
Ummmm.....why is there no alcohol in Chris?
"In other developments Thursday, Ballard told the AP that 10 empty beer cans were found in a trash can in the Benoit home. An empty wine bottle was found a few feet from where Benoit hanged himself, Ballard said."
I'm no CSI expert. Does alcohol leave the bloodstream too quickly to be found in toxicology reports?
HeadlinePlanet.com stated that after the death of his friend Johnny Grunge in 2006, Chris Benoit refused to attend his funeral and he would not attend church anymore due to a hatred of religion. He would not let Nancy Benoit go out past 6 p.m. and he would not let Daniel Benoit go outside because he felt that someone was watching his family and paranoid that someone was stalking him.
