They're saying that the Benoit autopsy revealed massive brain damage to Benoit which they believe played a part in the murder-suicide. The damage was done due to all those headbutts he did over the years.

Here's the story:

The brain of an 85 year old? If this is what led to what happened then it does kinda restore some of Benoit's legacy and puts a halt on the whole "Roid Rage" story.

It might have been a combo of the roids and concussions..Even with the brain of an 85 year old, caused by concussions, it is really weird to think that that reason alone would cause him to murder 2 people and then kill himself.

Well if the damage was so severe, steroids may have only played the part of giving him the ability to kill them. It could have got to the point where he couldn't tell right from wrong sometimes.

The NFL needs to look at this report and then lets see if they can try to deny there is no long lasting effects of concussions.

between this and the roids it seems people are really looking for an explaination to it all beyond this guy was a piece of shit. maybe he just hid it well for whatever amount of time he spent out in the public eye.

ATLANTA (AP) -- Journal entries written by wrestler Chris Benoit show he was wracked with grief and preoccupied with death after his best friend died in 2005, according to a lawyer representing Benoit's father.

Benoit, who killed his wife and 7-year-old son and committed suicide in June, wrote the diary as a series of letters to the friend, fellow wrestler Eddie Guerrero, according to lawyer Cary Ichter, who represents the wrestler's father in estate litigation.

Benoit's father, Michael Benoit, referred to the diary earlier this month, saying it was "written by someone who was extremely disturbed at the time." The father has said murder-suicide was out of character for his son and supported medical tests that recently showed Chris Benoit suffered brain damage that could have caused depression and irrational behavior.

Authorities say anabolic steroids were found in the home and Chris Benoit had a high amount of synthetic testosterone in his body when he died, leading to some speculation that steroid-induced rage sparked the killings.

Ichter, who said he knew Benoit for years, described what he said were Benoit's writings but he did not make copies of the journal available for review.

Ichter noted that at one point Benoit wrote to his friend, "I will be with you soon," an apparent nod to his own mortality.

"It showed that he was very depressed," Ichter said of the entries.

Benoit also wrote warmly about his son, Daniel, and his wife, Nancy, who had given him the journal as a way to cope with Guerrero's death, the lawyer said.

Prosecutors have said Benoit, 40, strangled his wife with a cord, used a choke hold to strangle his son placed Bibles next to the bodies and hanged himself on exercise equipment the weekend of June 22.

Ichter said a neighbor of the Benoits found the journal in the trash after the police and family had left the Benoits' house, and the neighbor gave it to Michael Benoit. He is permanent administrator to Chris Benoit's estate, and Ichter said the journal could become evidence in the estate litigation.

Authorities have said it could be months before the court determines the heirs, since neither Chris nor Nancy Benoit had a will. Whether Nancy Benoit died before Daniel will determine whether control of millions of dollars goes to Chris Benoit's two children from a previous marriage or to relatives on Nancy Benoit's side.

That makes sense. Still remember the Raw tribute to Guerrero. Benoit seemed to be one of the wrestlers to take it the worst.

This diary they are talking about should be an interesting read if it ever gets public

I completely buy the theory that brain damage caused Benoit's actions. But why was he doing those diving headbuts again and again all those years when his fans would have been just as happy with an armbar??
