Somebody knew about the death of Nancy Benoit and announced it on Wikipedia 14 hours before the police found her body!

The Wikipedia article on Chris Benoit was anonymously edited to read: "However, Chris Benoit was replaced… due to personal issues,…" to which the editor added " stemming from the death of his wife Nancy." What makes this editor such a mysterious character is that the edit was done fourteen hours before the dead body of Nancy Benoit was found by police on 25 June 2007.

The person who made the edit used IP address 69.120.111.23 using the Internet service provider Optimum Online. Further investigation revealed that the IP address used to make the edit is located in Connecticut. It is not linked to any computers or servers used by the WWE. Cary Bass, Volunteer Coordinator for the Wikimedia Foundation says the IP address matches a location in Stamford.

When Chris Benoit missed a live event on Sunday 24 June 2007, and the WWE couldn't get hold of him, they contacted the police and asked them to do a welfare check on Benoit. Police say that Benoit strangled his wife on Friday, smothered his seven year old son, Daniel, on late Friday or early Saturday, and then hanged himself inside his weight room on Sunday or Monday.

A hand written note by Chris was found in a Bible. It simply read: “I am planning to leave this earth.”
