Tormented wrestler Chris Benoit spent his last hellish hours agonizing over whether to kill his son, praying for salvation, drowning in grief and firing off bizarre text messages to pals.
An ENQUIRER investigative team uncovered the REAL story of what happened on the tragic weekend that superstar wrestler Benoit snapped — killing his family and then himself.
Guzzling beer and wine, the popular grappler made sad, slurred phone calls to friends as he prepared to snuff out his life.
"When he killed his wife, his life was over and he knew it," an insider told The ENQUIRER. "But he still had his beloved son, and who would take care of him? That’s why it all ended in the ultimate tragedy."
Investigators have reconstructed in detail how they believe the horror unfolded in the Benoits’ once-peaceful dream house — resulting in the death of Chris’ wife Nancy, 43, and son Daniel, 7.
