This guy claims he ran out of medication. He couldn't have gotten his RX refilled? Was he self medicating? To kill your own daughter because you didn't want her raised by strangers. What a sorry excuse for a human.

He's just using the meds. as an excuse. It's b.s. This guy was a time bomb that finally went off. Everyone who knew him stayed away because they knew he was violent. He had a history that led up to the murders. The sad thing is nobody saw this coming. Here's a guy who had shot holes in the back door of the house where he lived in Norwell. He was evicted because he never paid his rent and when he moved to Brockton his in-laws were paying all his bills. His neighbor said he would go out at night and make wailing noises. This case isn't about missing meds. This guy should have been in an institution. He wasn't stable. Very sad.

******Benoit, 42, told investigators he was worried that police would think he was ‘‘scum’’ when he confessed to the slayings, authorities say.

I don't know about the police but I sure think he's lower than scum.

******He couldn’t get Prozac, the antidepressant he had been taking, and he didn’t want to live, according to court papers.

ODD THING IS.......... HE'S ALIVE

excuses comes in many form, this one beats all,
Let see how the court system handles this one,, The man did this because he knows he will get out eventually, he will do a little time where ever they send him, and then he gets out, where if he stayed in the marrige he stuck for life and he then dedcided to do it the easy way, by killing his wife and child, the system is not as strong as it once was, the wrong become the right, and the right becomes the wrong, let see how they handle this one, let watch the jugd and the jury let see how they favor the wrong,

he wasnt a time bomb, ive been friends with the family for over 8 years, joe is like my brother, and mark was a father to me, he was never once violent that i have seen, and i stayed with the family for weeks at a time, visited mark and cindy every weekend, i helped them out when they needed food or money, mark was by far one of the nicest guys ive met in my life, he was so loving to both cindy and sara, and to me. so who ever wrote this, your the time bomb, its people like you that cause all the problems,so get a life.

I have a life. His actions are proof that he was a time bomb and denial that there was a problem won't help anyone now.

No sane person could do what he did. Stories I read about his former girlfriend being afraid of his explosive temper don't cast him in a good light. We only see some of each person, not all.

THAT MARK THE NICE GUY YOU TALK ABOUT, WOW DID HE PULL ONE OVER ON YOU, THAT ALL AND ACT, YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE SEEN ANY ABUSE, BUT LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, HE WAS VERY ABUSIVE TO CINDY, VERBALLY MOSTLY, WE USED TO BEG HER TO LEAVE WITH THE KIDS, SHE WAS MORE AFRAID OF WHAT HE WOULD DO TO HER IF SHE LEFT, THOSE ARE HER OWN WORDS. I AM NOT SAYING THAT MARK DIDN'T LOVE HIS KIDS, I AM SURE THAT HE DID, THAT I DO BELIEVE. BUT WE AS A FAMILY, WANT THAT ASSHOLE TO BIT THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN JAIL, AND HOPE THAT HE SEES HIS WIFE CINDY AND PRECIOUS SARAHS FACE EVERY TIME HE CLOSES HIS EYES, BECAUSE I KNOW THAT IS WHAT JOEYS IS SEEING. THATS RIGHT, JOEY CINDY AND MARK SON LITTLE SARAHS BIG BROTHER, HOW DO YOU THINK HE FEELS, WELL LET ME TELL YOU GUILTY. THIS POOR KID IN A WAY BLAMES HIMSELF FOR WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS MOM AND BABY SISTER. ITS NOT JOES FAULT, DO YOU THINK MARK THOUGHT ABOUT THAT WHEN HE KILLED JOEYS MOM AND LIL SISTER ON HIS 18TH BIRTHDAY, NO I THINK NOT. WE DON'T WANT THE DEATH PENETLY FOR HIM THATS THE EASY WAY OUT, LET HIM SUFFER IN JAIL FOR THE REST OF HIS MISERABLE LIFE, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT HE HAS DONE TO THIS FAMILY.

ffs all of you are talking s**t his name was chris benoit,not mark benoit.

nothing has been proven ie: if he even did it rather than found them and then commited suicide because of it.

also it was his SON daniel benoit that was found dead and not his daughter.

his other son david and his daughter megan are fine.

also he was 40 years old,born in 1967 not 42...

this whole artical is BS

Hey, genius... The names are different because this is an entirely different story. I suppose it didn't occur to you that there might be more than one person in the states with the last name Benoit? Also, the posting on this topic began in March. I suppose you thought this was a message board for psychics??

Finally, why would anyone be arguing about whether Chris Benoit should face the death penalty when he's already deceased?

Try using some common sense before you go around accusing people of being pathetic.

There is a link to The Patriot Ledger dated March 24, 2007 that shows this article about Mark Benoit. It is also true that Chris Benoit killed his family as well over this past weekend. So here we have two similar incidents not related but the same last name. Please check out the link at the top of the comments pages so you can see for yourself, and realize there might be truth to some of the comments from family. This way, you can see why they say what they are saying.

well i was the dudes neighbor in massachusetts, he went out every night screaming and yelling, he made the weirdest noises, ive seen him have ceizures on my front lawn, he was crazy, and he used to always tell me i was the son he never had for some reason...my mom and i had debated on calling the cops for so long, he caught frogs from our pond then ate them, he went to an 80 year olds door who had given him free rent for 2 years and kicked it down screaming, and if matt is who i tihnk it is, i remember him too, hes the guy that helped kick down the door.
