Update: Mysteriöses um Benoits Tod

nancy-sullivan.jpgRätsel um Wikipedia Eintrag um den Tod von Nancy

Ein aufmerksamer Wikipedia – User hat einen Eintrag bei Wikipedia entdeckt, worin der Tod von Nancy Benoit bekannt gegeben wurde.


Das Merkwürdige ist jedoch, dass dieser Eintrag von einem Computer in Connecticut, dem Hauptsitz der WWE, bei Wikipedia gemacht wurde. Klar, dass Chris diesen Eintragt nicht selbst gemacht haben kann, da Benoit in Atlanta, Georgia, wohnte.

Wikipedia controversy

News of Nancy Benoit’s death was posted on Wikipedia 14 hours before the police discovered the bodies. This was initially reported on Wikinews and later on FOXNews.com. The original posting read: “Chris Benoit was replaced by Johnny Nitro for the ECW World Championship match at Vengeance, as Benoit was not there due to personal issues, stemming from the death of his wife Nancy.” The phrase „stemming from the death of his wife Nancy“ [1] was added to the English Wikipedia’s „Chris Benoit“ article at 12:01 a.m. EDT on June 25,[102][103] whereas the Fayette County police reportedly discovered the bodies of the Benoit family at 2:30 p.m. EDT (14 hours, 29 minutes later). The IP address of the editor was traced to Stamford, Connecticut, which is also the location of WWE headquarters.[104] After news of the early death notice reached mainstream media, the anonymous poster accessed Wikinews to explain his seemingly prescient comments as a „huge coincidence and nothing more.“[105] Police have „seized computer equipment from the person responsible for the postings,“ and have called the confession an „unbelievable hindrance.“ It’s also reported that „if the person had knowledge of the death before police discovered the body, he or she could face criminal charges.“ [106]
