 According to the latest reports, Chris Benoit son may have been suffering from "Fragile X Syndrome". The Fragile X Syndrome is the most common inherited form of mental impairment, it can lead to autistic-like behavior, and there is no known cure. Lawyers with the World Wrestling Entertainment claim that just days before the death of the Benoits, the couple was arguing over carrying for their mentally disabled child.

 The lawyers also claim that after Nancy Benoit undergone surgery on her neck and was in pain, she wanted Chris to stay more home more often, but not to quit wrestling.

 About the killings

 According to Scott Ballard, district attorney for Fayette County:

 Daniel appeared to have been killed in a chokehold because he had internal neck injuries but no visible bruises.

 Nancy Benoit, 43, had bruises on her back and stomach, indicating her husband had his knee in her back as he pulled on a cord that was around her neck.

 Benoit killed himself by wrapping a cord around his neck that was attached to a weight machine. He released the almost 240 pounds of weights to cause strangulation, Ballard said.
During the weekend, Benoit made groggy calls to co-workers and left text messages, according to the WWE. In other calls, Benoit said his wife and son were sick with food poisoning and that they had gone to the hospital.

 Roid Rage

 World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon on Thursday urged people not to assume that steroids played a role in the murder-suicide of pro-wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy Daus and their 7-year-old son Daniel.

 McMahon, speaking on NBC's "Today" show, said toxicology results were needed to answer questions surrounding the death of Benoit. On Monday, the WWE said in the press release that the murders were not an act of "roid rage," because "the physical findings announced by authorities indicate deliberation." But when asked how could the WWE claim that steroid were not the cause of the murder-suicide in the press release, McMahon said they were just reacting to the hysteria of the media, and attempted to prevent speculation that "roid rage" was a factor in the killings, until proven by the lab results.

 Toxicology test results may not be available for weeks or even months, District Attorney Scott Ballard has said.
