Chris Benoit was a professional wrestler, with some of his peers calling him one of the best wrestlers of all time. On June 25th, 2007, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office responded to a welfare check requested by World Wrestling Entertainment. Police officers entered the home of Chris Benoit and found the pro wrestler, his wife, and his son dead in what looked like a murder-suicide.
Join Mike and Gibby for episode 2 on Chris Benoit. Although it seemed like Chris had everything: money, fame, and a beautiful family, he was struggling with intense grief, steroid abuse, and a volatile relationship with his wife. It was also discovered that Chris suffered from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, or CTE, and it was most likely caused by the numerous concussions he had while wrestling. The autopsy results, Chris's brain examination, and details uncovered through the investigation reveal quite a bit about this case.
