“I run security for World Wrestling,” Dennis Fagan says at the beginning of the recording of his call to Fayette County 911 on June 25, 2007 – the call that prompted the discovery of the dead bodies of Chris, Nancy, and Daniel Benoit.
But when I asked WWE spokesman Gary Davis about Fagan’s mistaken statement to 911 that Chris Benoit had left a peculiar message “to another wrestler” early “this morning” (he had sent a handful of text messages to.two other wrestlers early the previous morning), Fagan got demoted. “Dennis Fagan is employed by a security firm utilized by WWE. He assisted us in trying to contact Chris Benoit on the weekend in question, Davis said.
That firm is Andrews International, which is self-described as “a full service provider of security and risk mitigation services, and one of the ten largest private security service providers in the United States.”
Fagan is Andrews International’s “Executive Director, East Coast Anti-Piracy & Special Events.” His bio is at http://www.andrewsinternational.com/organization/biographies/executives/fagan_dennis.html.
