Chris Benoit

Sandra Toffoloni, the sister of Nancy Benoit, talked to about the tragedy that hit their family back in 2007, when her brother-in-law and former World Heavyweight champion Chris Benoit murdered her sister, nephew, and eventually killed himself as well.

She talked how Chris loved Nancy so much that he would never have hurt her that bad and something must have triggered his behavior and when he realized what he did, she thinks he thought he’d rather kill himself than live with the guilt.

An interesting point was raised saying that the medical examiner revealed to the family that Chris would have been dead within ten months anyway due to his enlarged heart, which was around three times the normal size.
