Chris Benoit had sent several “curious” messages to co-workers over the weekend which the WWE released on Tuesday. The first message was that Saturday at 3:30 PM when A co-worker received a voice message from Benoit. The message from Benoit stated he missed his flight and over slept and would be late to the WWE Live Event. The co-worker called Benoit back, Benoit confirmed everything he said in his voice message and sounded tired and groggy. Benoit then stated, “I love you”. The co-worker stated that it was “out of context.” Shortly thereafter at 3:42 PM, the co-worker, concerned with Benoit’s tone and demeanor, called Benoit for a second time. Benoit did not answer the call and the co-worker left a message stating “just call me back.” Minutes later at 3:44 PM, Benoit called the co-worker back stating he didn’t answer the call because he was on the phone with Delta changing his flight. Benoit stated he had a real stressful day due to Nancy and Daniel being sick with food poisoning. They discussed travel plans for the WWE Tour of Texas with Benoit still sounding groggy at this point according to the co-worker. About 45 minutes later at 4:30 PM, a co-worker who consistently travels with Benoit, called Benoit from an airport outside of Houston. Benoit told the co-worker that Nancy was throwing up blood and that Daniel was also throwing up. Benoit thought they had food poisoning. Benoit stated he changed his flight and he would be arriving into Houston at 6:30pm. Benoit told the co-worker to drive onto the WWE event.
About an hour later at 5:35 PM, Benoit called WWE Talent Relations stating that his son was throwing up and that he and Nancy were in the hospital with their son, and that Benoit would be taking a later flight into Houston, landing late, but would make the WWE live event in Beaumont.
A representative of Talent Relations later called Benoit at 6:10 PM. The representative from Talent Relations asked Benoit what time Benoit was getting into Beaumont. Benoit responded he was leaving Atlanta at 9:20pm Eastern time arriving into Houston at 9:24pm Central time. The representative from Talent Relations advised Benoit that it would be too late to make the WWE live event in Beaumont. Benoit apologized citing he had a family emergency. The representative from Talent Relations suggested to Benoit that instead of going to the WWE live event in Beaumont, Benoit should take the flight to Houston, rest up and be ready for the Vengeance Pay-Per-View event. The representative called back minutes later at 6:13 PM to reconfirm the travel plans with no answer from Benoit. The representative from Talent Relations left a voice message to take the flight and rest up.
On Sunday, Benoit sent several text messages from his phone and Nancy’s phone. The first was sent to two co-workers (the same who had spoken to Benoit the day before) at 3:53 AM from his phone: “C, S. My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane. Fayetteville Georgia. 30215”. A minute later he sent the same two the following text message: “The dogs are in the enclosed pool area. Garage side door is open”. Another minute later to the same two co-workers, this time from Nancy’s phone: “C, S. My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane. Fayetteville Georgia. 30215”. Again from Nancy’s phone a minute later to the same two co-workers: ” C, S. My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane. Fayetteville Georgia. 30215”. A few minutes later at 3:58 AM, he sent a text message to a co-worker (believed to be Chavo Guerrero) who consistently traveled with Benoit from Nancy’s phone: “My address is 130 Green Meadow Lane. Fayetteville Georgia. 30215”.
