Cops raid Chris
Benoit doctor's office after steroids found
After the police found
steroids and prescription drugs at Chris Benoit home, raid on
his doctor's office followed.
the latest reports, the office of Dr. Phil Astin, Chris Benoit
doctor and long-time friend, was conducted around midnight.
According to Fox News, state and federal drug agents staged a
late-night raid of the offices of pro wrestler Chris Benoit's
personal physician and met with the district attorney
investigating the Benoit murder-suicide on Thursday morning to
see if any charges should be filed.
The authorities say that the raid was
conducted after steroids and Schedule 2, 3, and 4 narcotic drugs
were found at Benoit's home during the investigation of his
murder-suicide. The exact names of the drugs were not released.
Dr. Phil Astin was present for the raid when officials ceased
computers and medical records from his office. He also admitted
prescribing testosterone for Chris Benoit in the past.
According to WWE attorney Jerry McDevitt,
although Benoit received deliveries from an Internet pharmacy
called MedXLife, and that company is under investigation with
more than 20 arrests of doctors and pharmacists taking place,
the drugs in Benoit's home were legitimately prescribed. The WWE
attorney also claims that none of the drugs found at Benoit's
home came from online pharmacies.
