conclusion that Chris Benoit killed his wife Nancy Benoit and
their 7-year-old son Daniel at their home in Atlanta, Georgia.
Police found the bodies in three different rooms, and according
to the reconstructed scene of the murder-suicide, the following
took place at the Benoits home: Nancy Benoit was murdered first,
her husband had his knee in her back as he pulled on a cord that
was around her neck; Daniel appeared to have been killed in a
chokehold because he had internal neck injuries but no visible
bruises; Chris Benoit killed himself by wrapping a cord around
his neck that was attached to a weight machine.
