Wrestler Chris Benoit was identified by Drug Enforcement Administration agents as an 'excessive purchaser of injectable steroids' who, over the past year, was prescribed a 10-month supply of anabolic steroids every three to four weeks by a Georgia doctor who was indicted today on federal charges. 

Benoit, who last week murdered his wife and son before committing suicide, came to the attention of DEA agents probing RX Weight Loss, a Marietta company.

Is the DEA partially responsible for Chris Benoit`s murder-suicide, for not acting on their knowledge of his steroid abuse?

They just found out his doctor gave out 400,000 prescriptions in something like in a year. i wonder who sold him the crap.

If anyone's partially responsible, it's the doctor who gave it to him in the first place.

I'd blame the doctor and the man himself. The DEA has enough to do.

No, and that bit of news always makes me chuckle, I tend to invision him 'wrastling' them to death, complete with fake wrestling 'umphs', 'ftuhs' and the never connecting punches, elbows and stomps.

Partially is the only word here that keeps this question from being very one-sided. His high school wrestling coach probably "partially" affected this murder by telling him he needed to get bigger. These indirect causes don't help get to the main point. On this same premise, you could argue that his mother partially caused these murders by birthing him...

i agree but if the DEA knew what was going on and didn't do anything they have some responsibility in this to.

It's completely up to the person taking it to stop before someone gets hurt! Actually, he should have never started, it's common sense, he took drugs, did you really think nothing would come of it, duh.

he looks psycho in that picture and he doesnt even look like he took that large amount of steriods i woud think that all that would have made him bigger like that one dude whos arm were huge.

A lot of people take steroids and don't do things like that. Steroids should of course never be taken or given but they shouldn't be blamed for him commiting this act.
