Dad: Benoit Was Demented
 
Posted Sep 5th 2007 9:14AM by TMZ Staff
Filed under: TV, Talk Sports
The father of dead WWE star Chris Benoit says that it might have been the effect of multiple concussions, not steroids, that drove Chris to kill his wife and son and then hung himself.
 
Michael Benoit told Diane Sawyer on this morning’s “Good Morning America” that after the tragedy, he turned over part of his son’s brain to Julian Bailes, a neurologist at the Sports Legacy Institute. Tissue analysis, said Bailes, showed that Benoit’s brain tissue revealed damage similar to those of Alzheimer’s patients, suggesting that he was suffering from a form of dementia, which could have led him to snap.
 
Benoit’s dad told Sawyer that his son suffered “multiple concussions,” and Dr. Bailes said that just three could lead to serious consequences. Whatever the case, said Michael Benoit, “The person that did this is not the man we know and love.”

Benoit’s father, doctor speculate wrestler had brain damage
Autopsy showed effect of multiple concussions
 
By MIKE MORRIS
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 09/05/07
 
The father of Chris Benoit and a doctor who examined brain matter from the former pro wrestler said Wednesday that brain damage caused by multiple concussions might have contributed to the deaths of Benoit, his wife and his son.
 
Authorities say Benoit killed his wife, Nancy, on June 22 and then killed their son, Daniel, the next day before taking his own life at their Fayetteville home.
 
Dr. Julian Bailes, chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at West Virginia University and a founding member of the Sports Legacy Institute, told ABC’s Good Morning America Wednesday that damage to the wrestler’s brain was “striking and maybe shocking.”
 
Bailes showed images of Benoit’s brain matter, and said the images showed “dead brain cells” and damage that mimicked that found in Alzheimer’s patients.
 
He said his study had found brain damage that was “very abnormal and something you shouldn’t see in a 40-year-old.”
 
Asked whether previous concussions could have led to the damage, Bailes said, “We think we have great anatomical damage here from previous trauma,” Bailes said. “Whether it had a psychiatric or behavioral expression, we certainly think that’s most likely.”
 
Benoit’s father, Michael Benoit, said his son suffered “quite a number” of concussions during his wrestling career.
 
“Our research has shown that three major concussions may be the threshhold that serious later consequences may occur,” Bailes said.
 
The Sports Legacy Institute, a research group founded to study degenerative brain conditions caused by repetitive brain injuries, planned a late-morning press conference in New York to release the findings of the study on Benoit’s brain.
 
In July, a GBI toxicology report showed Benoit had highly elevated levels of testosterone. But medical experts warned against automatically assuming that steroids were responsible for Benoit’s alleged murder of his wife and son.

Doctor: Benoit had brain injury that may have led to killings
By HARRY R. WEBER – Associated Press Writer —
 
ATLANTA —
Pro wrestler Chris Benoit suffered brain damage from his years in the ring that could help explain why he killed his wife, son and himself in their suburban Atlanta home in June, a doctor who studied Benoit’s brain said Wednesday.
 
The Sports Legacy Institute, an organization that advances health and wellness of athletes, coordinated the testing using samples of Benoit’s brain tissue provided by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation with the permission of Benoit’s father.
 
Despite the results of the testing, Dr. Robert Cantu, a member of the institute and chief of neurosurgery service at Emerson Hospital in Concord, Mass., said there was no way to know for sure if the concussions Benoit suffered caused the murder-suicide.
 
“Whether it is the sole factor I believe is speculation and I will not go there,” Cantu said in a telephone interview.
 
Cantu did say that the brain injury Benoit suffered can cause depression and irrational behavior.
 
Benoit’s brain showed the same degenerative processes that doctors working for the institute found in the brains of three National Football League players who committed suicide, Cantu said. There were abnormal protein deposits caused by trauma to Benoit’s brain, Cantu said.
 
Since the killings at Benoit’s Fayetteville home, the question of whether steroid use contributed to the deaths has lingered. Anabolic steroids were found in Benoit’s home, and tests conducted by authorities showed Benoit had roughly 10 times the normal level of testosterone in his system when he died.
 
Cantu said “there’s no evidence so far” whether steroid use causes the protein deposits found in Benoit’s brain, though he noted the issue has not been exhaustively studied.
 
Benoit’s family has been looking for answers since the tragedy.
 
Days after the killings, Benoit’s father, Michael Benoit, who lives near Edmonton in Ardrossan, Alberta, said his son seemed fine when they spoke on Father’s Day, and had even said he regretted having to work instead of spending the day with his family.
 
“That really wouldn’t give you an indication of someone who would do what he did a week later,” the father said at the time.
 
In an interview Wednesday on ABC’s Good Morning America, Michael Benoit said, “It was important for us to investigate, to see if there was a possibility that something went terribly wrong.”
 
The father was expected to speak at a news conference later Wednesday in New York to discuss the brain test results.
 
Christopher Nowinski, a former pro wrestler who now is president of the Sports Legacy Institute, said concussions can happen in the World Wrestling Entertainment league even though many of the moves are staged.
 
“I got four concussions in three years as a professional wrestler,” said Nowinski, who works as an independent contractor for the WWE. “A lot of concussions happen from mistakes.”
 
The district attorney overseeing the death investigation has said Benoit strangled his wife with a cord, used a choke hold to strangle his 7-year-old son, then placed Bibles next to the bodies and hanged himself on a piece of exercise equipment in his home the weekend of June 22.
 
Authorities have said that Chris Benoit’s personal doctor, Phil Astin, prescribed a 10-month supply of anabolic steroids to Benoit every three to four weeks between May 2006 and May 2007.
 
Testosterone can be used as part of hormone replacement therapy. Some athletes also have been known to use steroids to enhance their performance.
 
Astin has pleaded not guilty to federal charges of improperly prescribing painkillers and other drugs to two patients other than Benoit. Federal prosecutors plan a superseding indictment with new charges, but haven’t said when they will act.
 
The GBI conducted an autopsy and toxicology tests on the bodies, but analyzing Benoit’s brain was not part of the examination, spokesman John Bankhead said Wednesday.

Benoit’s Brain Showed Severe Damage From Multiple Concussions, Doctor and Dad Say
Researchers Say Test Results on the Pro Wrestler’s Brain May Help Explain His Suicide, Murder of Son and Wife
 
Sept. 5, 2007 —
 
The family of Chris Benoit has been searching for answers since late June, when the professional wrestler killed his wife, 7-year-old son and then himself.
 
At the crime scene, police found anabolic steroids prompting many to suspect that “roid rage” had accounted for Benoit’s behavior, which his family found out of character for the 40-year-old.
 
His family now believes that new test results on Benoit’s brain explain his vicious actions.
 
The tests, conducted by Julian Bailes of the Sports Legacy Institute, show that Benoit’s brain was so severely damaged it resembled the brain of an 85-year-old Alzheimer’s patient.
 
Bailes and his research team say that this damage was the result of a lifetime of chronic concussions and head trauma suffered while Benoit was in the wrestling ring.
 
Benoit’s father, Michael Benoit, is speaking out in order to warn other athletes, both professional and student.
 
Dementia Caused by Multiple Concussions, Doctor Says
 
After hearing the news that his son had murdered his 7-year-old son, Daniel, and wife Nancy and then killed himself, Michael Benoit struggled to understand how it could have happened.
 
Michael says Benoit was a “kind and gentle” man who volunteered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and visited U.S. troops overseas in Iraq.
 
“First we needed an understanding. The person that did this is not the man we know and love,” Michael said today on “Good Morning America.”
 
After the suicide and murders, Michael was contacted by a former wrestler, who suggested he investigate whether years of trauma to Benoit’s brain could have contributed to his actions.
 
“I was grasping for anything,” Michael told ABC News’ Bob Woodruff. “The world was very black. I mean, we didn’t even know how to deal with this.”
 
So Michael turned over part of his son’s brain to Bailes, the head of neurosurgery at West Virginia University and former Pittsburgh Steelers team physician.
 
Bailes and his research team had also analyzed the brains of former NFL players such as Andre Waters and Terry Long, who both committed suicide. Bailes and his colleagues theorize that repeated concussions can lead to dementia, which can contribute to severe behavioral problems.
 
“There is a constant theme in the failure of their personal lives, their business lives, depression and then ultimately suicide,” Bailes said.
 
Similar Brain Damage Found in Other Athletes
 
Bailes and his research team took samples from Benoit’s brain postmortem and compared these microscopic brain scans to those of a healthy brain.
 
They found that Benoit’s brain showed an advanced form of dementia that appears on the brain scan as brown clumps or tangles. These brown spots are actually dead brain cells, killed off as a result of head trauma, said Bailes.
 
In Benoit’s case, the damage was found in every section of the brain all four lobes and deep into the brain stem.
 
“It was extensive throughout Chris’ brain,” Bailes said. “This is something you should never see in a 40-year-old.”
 
The damage is proof, Bailes said, that Benoit suffered multiple, probably chronic, concussions over the course of many years.
 
Benoit, in fact, told friends he had suffered “more concussions than he could count.”
 
Benoit’s brain showed the same kind of damage Bailes and his team found in four retired NFL players who also suffered multiple concussions and later sank into deep depressions and harmed themselves or others.
 
Perhaps most disturbing, a person doesn’t need to have sustained dozens of concussions to see problems later in life.
 
“Our research shows that three concussions may be the threshold for lasting damage,” Bailes said.
 
This kind of brain damage isn’t new to athletes, but doctors and researchers are starting to understand it better. As far back as the 1920s, career boxers were diagnosed with “punch drunk syndrome,” which is now known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
 
Bailes said that while he can’t be certain that the brain damage caused Benoit’s actions, he believes it is the leading cause.
 
“We think these changes are not due to steroids,” Bailes said. “That has never really been studied, but it’s never been in the medical literature or any research that shows steroids do this to the brain. These changes [in the brain] were found in the 1920s before steroids were even invented.”
 
For Michael Benoit and the family, these test results provide a small amount of comfort.
 
“Bascially, once the findings came out and I had the opportunity to talk to the doctors, we certainly had an understanding of what could have contributed to the tragedy that took place that day,” Michael said.
 
The message Michael would like Benoit’s surviving children to take away is that “their dad loved [them] dearly and what happened wasn’t his fault.”
 
More on this story tonight on “Nightline” at 11:35 p.m. EDT.

Brain Damage May Have Caused Wrestler Chris Benoit to Kill Family, Doctor Says
 
Wednesday, September 05, 2007
 
AP

ATLANTA —
A doctor who examined brain matter from former pro wrestler Chris Benoit is saying the wrestler had brain damage from multiple concussions that was consistent with what’s seen in Alzheimer’s patients.
 
Dr. Julian Bailes told ABC’s Good Morning America that the “striking and maybe shocking” damage may have been a leading cause for Benoit killing his wife, children and himself at their Atlanta-area home in June.
 
Bailes showed the show’s hosts images of a healthy brain and of part of Benoit’s brain — which had large brown spots he said were dead brain cells and their connecting tissue. He said such damage is not caused by steroid use.

The first person in the order can only tag the second. The second person can only tag the third, and so on.  Eliminations can occur via pinfall, submission, disqualification or knockout. Cibernetico rules also allow for an elimination to occur if the next person in the batting order fails to tag or refuses a tag.  Only one person can win the Cibernetico. If all the members of one team are eliminated, the members of the surviving team must wrestle each other until just one remains.
