More details are coming about the Chris Benoit murder-suicide. He apparently sent five text messages early Sunday morning between 3:53 AM and 3:58 AM to WWE co-workers before committing suicide, even sending some from his dead wife’s cell phone. According to the WWE, the five text messages were:

(sent 6/24 at 3:53 a.m.) – Chris Benoit’s cell phone

“My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane, Fayetteville Georgia. 30215″

(sent 6/24 at 3:53 a.m.) – Chris Benoit’s cell phone
“The dogs are in the enclosed pool area. Garage side door is open”

(sent 6/24 at 3:54 a.m.) – Nancy Benoit’s cell phone
“My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane.
Fayetteville Georgia. 30215″

(sent 6/24 at 3:55 a.m.) – Nancy Benoit’s cell phone
“My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane.
Fayetteville Georgia. 30215″

(sent 6/24 at 3:58 a.m.) – Nancy Benoit’s cell phone
“My address is 130 Green Meadow Lane. Fayetteville Georgia. 30215″

The WWE is also dismissing any suggestions of ‘roid rage’ since Benoit was deliberate with the murders and left Bibles at the feet of his wife and son after killing them. A rep for the WWE says:

“The physical findings announced by authorities indicate deliberation, not rage. The wife’s feet and hands were bound and she was asphyxiated, not beaten to death. By the account of the authorities, there were substantial periods of time between the death of the wife and the death of the son, again suggesting deliberate thought, not rage. The presence of a Bible by each is also not an act of rage.”

This is just way too creepy to start off the morning. If you could see me, you’d see I was juggling kittens to try and alleviate the tension. You know, because kittens are cute. And super grisly murder is not.
