Toxicology Results Of Chris, Nancy, & Daniel Benoit Revealed

Written by Richard Gray on Jul 17, 2007 - 2:28:30 PM

- Earlier this afternoon a press conference was held to reveal the toxicology results of the bodies of Chris, Nancy, and Daniel Benoit. Below are the highlights that came from the conference.

It is confirmed that doctors found Hydrocodone and Xanax in the system of Nancy Benoit. The levels were of therapeutic proportions. Nancy had a 0.184 blood alcohol level; however, they are unable to tell if she had drunk alcohol because the blood alcohol level could have been due to the decomposition process of her body.

Daniel Benoit had Xanax at elevated levels in his system. It is their opinion that Daniel was sedated prior to the time he was murdered.

Chris Benoit’s system was positive for Xanax and Hydrocodone. Both were at therapeutic levels. The only steroid found in Benoit’s system was testosterone. It was found in elevated levels which indicate that he was taking it prior to his death.

No evidence of GHB was found in any of the three bodies.

GBI's Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Kris Sperry said that no one really knows if higher levels of testosterone could have caused the erratic behavior. The abnormal range of testosterone in Benoit’s system indicates that he was injecting it.

Daniel’s body was just starting to show signs of decomposition. Due to the small amount of urine they were able to get from his body, they were unable to test for levels of Human Growth Hormone.

The doctor says that the drugs in Nancy Benoit’s body were at therapeutic levels, however, they could have been lower due to the decomposition process. Dr. Sperry said that he would not be surprised if she was taking the medications because of previous surgeries and pain. Sperry said that he had no evidence that Nancy was sedated.

Dr. Sperry confirmed that there was clear evidence Daniel Benoit was sedated before his killing.

He says that there was no evidence of any other illegal steroids in Chris Benoit's body other than testosterone. The testosterone could reveal Chris Benoit was being treated for testicular inefficiency. It was made very clear that they know conclusively that there were no other substances found in Chris Benoit’s body that could have been used for body building purposes.

The most common use for testosterone amongst males in the United States is for testicular inefficiency, Dr. Sperry confirms. He says there is no scientific evidence that high levels of testosterone lead to fits of rage.

Dr. Sperry re-iterates it would be erroneous to suggest that Nancy’s blood alcohol level was all due to drinking alcohol or due to the body’s decomposition process. It is impossible to tell.
