Steroids Were Found In Body Of Chris Benoit – cliff notes

Dr. Kris Sperry, Georgia’s chief medical examiner, has revealed that professional wrestler Chris Benoit, who killed his wife and son before hanging himself, injected anabolic steroids not long before he died. The medical examiner also said the son of Chris was sedated before his death.

The 40-year-old wrestler, who was nicknamed “The Rabid Wolverine” and “The Canadian Crippler,” as found dead with his wife, Nancy, and 7-year-old son, Daniel, on June 25, 2007 in their suburban Atlanta home.

Toxicology tests found drugs in all three Benoits, according to Dr. Sperry, who said elevated levels of steroid testosterone were found in the body of Chris Benoit and the anxiety drug Xanax was in the body of his 7-year-old son, Daniel.

The elevated level “is an indicator that he had been injecting testosterone, but how much, how frequently, how often and for how long is something that cannot be answered through this,” Dr. Sperry said.

According to investigators, anabolic steroids were among prescription drugs found in the home of Benoit. The urine of Benoit had about 10 times the normal level of testosterone, which is a form of doping in sports. The wrestler’s body also had traces of hydrocodone, a pain reliever, and Xanax and no other steroids were found.

Chris Benoit’s Last Match

The employer of Benoit, @World Wrestling Entertainment, made a statement that the professional wrestler had passed a random drug test in April.

The family physician, Phillippe Astin, M.D., who prescribed anabolic steroids to Chris Benoit in the year before the double murder-suicide went to trial on March 16, 2009 though there was not even a single charge related to anabolic steroids against him. The doctor faced charges of distributing and dispensing approximately one million dosage units of painkillers and stimulants classified as controlled substances, which included Percocet, Oxycontin, Demerol, Lorcet, Ritalin, Vicodin, Xanax, Klonipin, Methadone, Ritalin, Adderall, Dexedrine and Soma “for other than a legitimate medical purpose and not in the usual course of professional practice.”

Chris Benoit was identified by DEA Diversion Investigator Anissa Jones as an “excess purchaser of injectable steroids” during a federal investigation of Rx Weight Loss in Marietta, Georgia. Prescription records obtained from Jones Pharmacy in Fayetteville, Georgia suggested that Chris Benoit was prescribed 10-month supply of testosterone cypionate every 3-4 weeks from May 4, 2006 to May 9, 2007 on the prescription of Dr. Phil Astin.

In February 2006, Benoit received steroids from Signature, based on a prescription by Florida physician Gary Brandwein. The steroid pharmacy was also supplying anabolic steroids to top wrestlers Randy Orton, Charles Haas, Jr., Adam “Edge” Copeland, Robert “Booker T” Huffman, Shane Helms, Mike Bucci, Anthony Carelli, John “Johnny Nitro” Hennigan, Darren “William Regal” Matthews, Ken “Mr. Kennedy” Anderson, Eddie “Umaga” Fatu, Shoichi Funaki, and Chavo Guerrero.

Over a period of approximately 30 months between December 13, 2004 and June 22, 2007, Chris Benoit was prescribed 5,580 tablets of Lorcet (10mg), 3,600 tablets of Xanax (2mg), and 1380 tablets of Soma (350mg) while 3,690 tablets of Lorcet (10mg), 600 tablets of Xanax (2mg) and 240 tablets of Soma (350mg) between June 6, 2005 and May 30, 2007 to Nancy Benoit, his wife.

Benoit passed drug test in April, says WWEThe head of World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. has said that professional wrestling star Chris Benoit, who killed his wife and son before taking his own life earlier this week, passed a random drug test in April.

“The last test that Chris Benoit took of a random nature was in April which he was totally negative,” WWE Chairman Vince McMahon said on NBC’s “Today” morning program. “That doesn’t mean that he wasn’t taking prescription medication and perhaps even steroids when this happened. We don’t know.”

Investigators found anabolic steroids among prescription drugs in Benoit’s suburban Atlanta house where the three bodies were found.

Answer soon on use of steroids by gunmanTests of body fluids taking during autopsy of Jan Molenaar, the gunman, will soon be revealed to the world.

It is worth noting that Molenaar, a body builder, has been linked to steroid use by reports but the same has been vehemently denied by his brother, Peter.

Senate bid for the final steroid testEver since Barry Bonds entered a San Francisco courthouse to testify about the use of drugs by him, baseball fans and media have been a part of anguished debate in relation to use of drugs in sports.

The baseball world is all full of speculations whether two “cheaters”, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, will be excluded by the Hall of Fame voters for making use of steroids and performance enhancing drugs.

Linda McMahon who has been accused of doing little to nothing to curb steroid use may find respite in the fact that users of anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs such as Jesse Ventura and Arnold Schwarzenegger have been appointed as governors.

Linda McMahon's senate bid for the ultimate steroid testFans and media have engaged in an anguished debate about drugs in sports ever since Barry Bonds entered a San Francisco courthouse for testifying about the substances that had inflated his body and batting statistics.

The world of baseball is all full of speculations whether Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, two of the best hitter and pitchers of their eras, will be excluded by the Hall of Fame voters due to evidence that they made use of steroids and performance enhancing drugs.

The fact that users of anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs such as Jesse Ventura and Arnold Schwarzenegger have been considered good enough by the general public to be governors may offer respite to Linda McMahon to pursue her grand ambitions without worries.

  EXPERT’S ADVICE: MCMAHON SHOULD PREPARE TO FACE MEDIA

EXPERT’S ADVICE: MCMAHON SHOULD PREPARE TO FACE MEDIAAutopsy results for Andrew “the Test” Martin’s death will be released two weeks from now and Vince McMahon receives advice on how to handle the possible media onslaught. Martin’s demise is the latest in the series of steroids-related deaths in the WWE. Wrestler Chris Benoit murdered his wife and son then he took his own life. Eddie Guerrero, died of a heart attack which was also attributed to his long term use of steroids. With Martin’s death happening at the height of steroid scandal in the world of professional sports, McMahon can only do so much to keep the media mayhem at bay which could probably be worse than what he had gone through with Benoit.

McMahon and WWE should start planning on some damage control especially since Martin’s death would definitely put them on the center ring. Media vs. McMahon and WWE. And this time the WWE can’t rely on their muscles to knockout the opponent. When it comes to the steroid issue, the media can be pretty vicious.

  ASTIN MIGHT ADMIT TO CHARGES SOON

astin-steroidsIt was just on mid-2007 when the world of professional wrestling was rocked by a shocking new about one of their colleagues. WWE star Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy and their son Daniel were found dead in their Fayetteville home. The suspect for the gruesome murder was no other than Chris himself.

Dr. Phil Astin, Chris Benoit’s personal doctor was allegedly giving the wrestler anabolic steroids. During his investigation, Astin’s lawyer, Manny Arora, claimed that the search of his clinic exceeded what was authorized by the warrant and asked the judge to throw out any evidence seized during the raid after Benoit’s death. While the medical examiner to the Benoit case couldn’t determine whether the increase in aggression caused by steroids played a role in the crime, Astin has been charged of over-prescription of medication involving 17 patients other than the wrestler. At present, Astin is planning to change his plea in the drug case.

It is still unknown why Astin opted for the change in plea and what effect this would have in court. What is sure is that even if the Benoit case investigation is still indeterminate, Astin’s involvement with other steroid cases would assure that we’ll be hearing more about the doctor and the late wrestler.

  Deceased MMA fighter Justin Levens was addicted to painkillers not steroids

levens-steroidsUFC mixed martial arts fighter Justin Levens was found dead along with his wife in their Laguna Niguel condominium in California. Authorities believed it was a case of murder-suicide although investigation is still ongoing to determine exactly the nature of the crime.

“Nothing has been ruled out,” said Orange Country Sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino.

The bodies of Levens, 28 and his wife Sara McLean-Levens, 25, were discovered around 2:30 pm Wednesday by the mother of McLean-Levens, saying she got worried when she had not heard from her daughter for five days. When she saw the bodies, the woman dialed 911 for help. The bodies were believed to be in the home for at least a few days.

Orange County Superior Court records indicated that Levens was convicted in 2003 of spousal injury.

His last fight was scheduled July this year, but he was banned before the fight for testing positive for oxymorphone, an opioid analgesic.

This case has spawned suspicions that the crime was caused by roid rage, a term used to refer to aggressive and violent behavior of anabolic steroid users. However, there has been no concrete indication that Levens was abusing steroids.

According to the report of LA Times, no suicide note was found but authorities recovered a handgun at the scene. Police also found huge amounts of pain killers and anti-depressants at the condo but not anabolic steroids.

It has been compared with the Chris Benoit double murder-suicide which was alleged to have been caused also by roid rage. However, people who are involved in the case, including Benoit’s father, linked the wrestler’s murderous behavior to dementia which was believed to be caused by repetitive head concussions

  WWE and Steroids: Chris Benoit story

wwe steroids Chris BenoitThere has been a lot of speculation since Chris Benoit as to why he killing himself and his family. Well, the steroid fuel roid-rage claimed by the media is not what killed Chris Benoit, not by a long short. Chris Benoit was a victim of a physical condition brought on by years of undiagnosed concussions. As a WWE wrestler he had a lot of head injuries which caused long term psychological damage. On top of brain injury, Chris Benoit was a heavy abuser of pain killers (vicodin), anti-depressants, and psychoactive drugs such as cocaine. Anabolic Steroids played a role of NOTHING in his death and the death of his family.

The truth is that after Chris Benoit died, the University of West Virginia took his brain under intense study. They discovered a huge problem with his brain due to past injuries related to his professional wrestling in WWE. It turns out that a ton of professional football players (NFL) commit suicide all the time, so University of West Virginia has been studying the phenomenon. Doctors at UofWV found that the brain tissue of pro football players had a protein usually seen in the brans of elderly people with dementia. This protein is almost NEVER seen in normal average age men. The real conclusion came to a point when it was clear that Chris Benoit went crazy because he had brain damage not because some guy (his doctor) allowed him to buy steroids. Anabolic Steroids and testosterone had nothing to do with the death of WWE superstar Chris Benoit.

[University of West Virginia] already studied the brains of professional football players who had committed suicide and discovered the physical evidence needed to reach a ground-breaking conclusion: that football players are at great risk of profound behaviour changes due to repeated head injury. By examining Chris Benoit’s brain, they believed, they could open the door to include wrestlers
