Chris Benoit's house

This is Chris Benoit's former house.

It is situated at 130 Green Meadow Lane in Fayetteville, Georgia.

On June 25th, 2007, WWE CEO Vince McMahon announced that Benoit, his wife Nancy, and their seven-year-old son Daniel had been found dead at their home.

Although the WWE paid tribute to "The Rabid Wolverine" and dedicated an entire show to his legacy, it wasn't long before the company realized that it needed to distance itself from him.

Within days, it became clear that it was a murder-suicide, not a tragic accident.

The truth was unthinkable: Benoit had murdered his wife and son before hanging himself from a weight machine in his personal gym.

On June 22nd, he knelt on Nancy's back and strangled her to death with a cord. Not long afterwards, he sedated his son Daniel with Xanax and then suffocated him to death.

After murdering his wife and son, he placed copies of the Bible beside their bodies.

The following day, Benoit contacted a colleague at the WWE and told them that he would be late for a show because Nancy and Daniel had food poisoning.

However, he never showed up.

After missing the event, Benoit contacted his colleague again and stated that he would fly out to Houston the following morning.

In the early hours of June 24th, the wrestler sent several text messages to people that he knew. These messages contained his address and details about how to enter the house.

Later that morning, Benoit did not arrive at the airport. However, he managed to allay suspicions by contacting the WWE and telling them that he would take a later flight.

That night, he failed to appear yet again. He also stopped answering his phone.

The next day, on June 25th, 2007, officials at the WWE started worrying about the fact that one of their biggest superstars had gone silent. They also learned about the strange text messages that he had sent.

Fearing that something was wrong, they contacted the police in Fayetteville and asked them to carry out a welfare check.

After the police breached the residence, they discovered the bodies of Benoit, his wife, and their son in separate rooms. Although the police informed the WWE that three bodies had been found and that it was now a "major crime scene," they did not provide specific details.

When news of the deaths first broke, Benoit's colleagues initially believed that it was a tragic accident or that someone else had murdered the family.

They could not imagine him committing such a horrific crime, as he was a quiet and friendly guy who got along with everyone. Furthermore, he had recently claimed that Nancy and Daniel were suffering from food poisoning.

As a result, they felt completely blindsided when the truth finally came to light.

Benoit and Nancy had been dating since 1997. Their son, Daniel, was born in February 2000. Nine months later, the couple decided to tie the knot.

In 2003, Nancy filed for divorce against her husband, citing "cruel treatment". She also filed for a restraining order. However, these filings were both dropped later that year.

When Benoit failed to show up on June 25th, 2007, the head of WWE's security team decided to call the Fayetteville Police Department.

The following is a partial transcript of that phone call:

"Yesterday, he was supposed to show up at a Pay-Per-View. He never got on the plane, never showed up. They tried to reach his wife, Nancy. She didn't answer. They tried to call his house. It's out of character for him."

When the police broke into the house, they discovered Nancy's body in an upstairs room. She had been tied up, strangled to death, and then wrapped in a towel. Her body was bloated due to the effects of decomposition.

In another room, they found the remains of seven-year-old Daniel.

After entering the gym, they were met with the gruesome sight of Benoit hanging from a weight machine.
