DEATH OF WRESTLER'S WIFE REPORTED ONLINE BEFORE BODIES DISCOVERED

June 28, 2007 -- An anonymous user operating a computer traced to Stamford, Conn. - home to World Wrestling Entertainment - posted an entry to pro wrestler Chris Benoit's biography on Wikipedia.org announcing the death of his wife Nancy at least 13 hours before police in suburban Atlanta said they found her body along with her husband's and that of their 7-year-old son, FOXNews.com has learned.

The posting reads: "Chris Benoit was replaced by for the ECW Championship match at Vengeance, as Benoit was not there due to personal issues, stemming from the death of his wife Nancy." According to a Wikipedia.org report published after FOXNews.com made inquiries, the edit was reversed just under one hour later with the comment:

"Need a reliable source. Saying that his wife died is a pretty big statement, you need to back it up with something."


Spooky as hell. If someone had information on his wife's death, why the hell would one of the first things they would think of to do be updating a Wiki?

Chris did it himself I think. They said that he killed his wife on the first day, his son on the second day, and himself on the third day. He was sending out weird text messages to his friends before he killed himself too. So, he had plenty of time to put stuff on wikipedia if he wanted to.
