Steroid abuse can have profound effects on the mind, causing temporary personality changes in some. Users may exhibit uncontrolled aggression and violent behavior called “roid rage,” in addition to severe mood swings, manic episodes, and depression. Moreover, users may suffer paranoid jealousy, extreme irritability, delusions, and impaired judgment from feelings of invincibility. During periods when they do not use, chronic users may experience withdrawal symptoms that intensify the psychological effects

According to wwe.com his actions were deliberate, and weren't actions from "rage." For instance, he had bound his wife's hands together, and left bibles nearby his kid and wife. I would assume a "rage" would have been more "uncontrolled" and sloppy.
The WWE has the story at www.wwe.com.
Whether he took steroids or not, I don't know.
According to some, steroids can be taken safely, when you use them properly. I personally haven't taken them, so I don't know.
Wrestling superstar CHRIS BENOIT allegedly gave his seven-year-old son steroids to boost his physical appearance.
The star, who police believe asphyxiated his wife Nancy and son Daniel on Friday (22Jun07) and Saturday (23Jun07) respectively, before hanging himself on Sunday (24Jun07), is reported to have administered the growth hormone to the child just before he killed him.
Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard alleges needle marks were found on Daniel's arms - and claims Benoit was unhappy with his son's build and height.
He says, "He was very small, even dwarfed." Anabolic steroids were found at the wrestler's Atlanta, Georgia, home.

One of the things from the story that trouble me is that he gave them to his son.
Perhaps this was a family issue that made possible for him to snap in the way he did.
Can anybody imagine what would have happen if the media has gotten hold of him giving steroids to his son with the genetic issue he had.
He was actually experimenting with his own son, but did his wife knew about it?

Sure, the steroids probably did create a rage state...
But in terms of desperation that could lead to such crimes,
there may be another explantion.
The other type of drug found at the house were painkillers...
he had become addicted years ago.
It is possible he had endured the withdrawal syndrome, which
can move a person to desperate acts. Perhaps he could not
break the addiction- which can be incredibly depressing
I lost my best friend to addiction. I know what it can do-
maybe general addiction is what drove this guy to do what he did...
