• David Benoit Comments On Chris Benoit – Kevin Sullivan Conspiracy Theories
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, David Benoit, Chris Benoit’s son from his first marriage, talked about the conspiracy theories of Kevin Sullivan being involved in his father’s death.
Below is what David said:
“Conspiracy theories are just a joke. Kevin Sullivan didn’t do anything, you know? We looked into that and never had the police look into him, so yeah. I didn’t want to believe it.
I thought someone broke into the house or some sh*t and did it, but apparently there was a scuffle at the door. That’s what I heard.
It took me 7 months. I was sitting there thinking. I thought about it every day. Why? Couldn’t he have left a note or could he have called me?”
