There is an article in today’s edition of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution talking about the connection between Chris Benoit’s former physician Dr. Phil Astin and the late Michael “Johnny Grunge” Durham.

According to the paper, Astin wrote 32 of the final 36 prescriptions Durham received during the final year of his life. Austin, who refused comment, was one of eleven doctors that Durham used to get prescriptions from 1999 to the time he died in February 2006. Durham’s final prescription was for a bottle of 120 somas which was found empty the next day when Durham died.

Durham’s widow Penny supplied the pharmacy records.

Astin was indicted last summer for illegally dispensing medication to two patients and was charged in the wake of the Benoit family tragedy.
