“Finally, we know that the Fayette County sheriff’s report airbrushed several aspects of the Benoit telephonic record. And we know that Georgia and Connecticut law enforcement authorities, collectively, bobbed and weaved like a heel tag team trying to run out the time limit, before the latter finally obeyed the law and released to me the Stamford police videotaped interrogation of Matthew Greenberg, the ‘Benoit Wikipedia hacker.'” To read the full story, visit Slam Wrestling.
