Investigators say that wrestler Benoits' 7-year-old son, Daniel, was sedated at the time he was murdered, because a high level of the anti-anxiety drug Xanax was found in the boy's system. It was also found that Chris had a steroid and other drugs in his system when he killed his wife and young son last month and hanged himself in the family's home.
Dr. Kris Sperry, chief medical examiner for the state with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, released the results of the toxicology report for the wrestler; his wife, Nancy; and son, Daniel. Benoit's body contained 10 times the normal level of testosterone, as well as amounts of the anti-anxiety drug Xanax and the painkiller hydrocodone.
"This level of testosterone indicates that he had been using testosterone at least within some reasonably short period of time prior to the time that he died." Although testosterone was found in Christopher Benoit's urine, there is no evidence of any other of the illegal types of steroids, or the whole laundry list of anabolic steroids that are out there to be used," Sperry said, adding, "the presence of the testosterone alone even could be an indicator that he was being treated for testicular insufficiency." The GBI said Benoit tested negative for blood alcohol.
"There's no reliable scientific data that says elevated levels of testosterone lead to psychotic rage," Sperry said. So nothing decisive could be said about Chriss state of mind before his death.
The investigation into the Benoits' deaths led to speculation that the wrestler may have been injecting steroids and had experienced what is called " 'roid rage," leading him to kill his wife and son.
The GBI said it could not perform tests for steroids or human growth hormones on the son because of a lack of urine.
Benoit's wife, Nancy, tested positive for Xanax, hydrocodone and the painkiller hydromorphone, but the decomposition process hindered the ability Page: 1 2 Related medicine news :1
