The Arizona Republic has uncovered additional information about the recent months of Christopher Smith’s life:
Records show Smith moved out of the home he’d lived in with his wife and three daughters in March. His wife stated in court documents that at that time, there had been “at least six months of erratic, bizarre, unexplained behavior” from Smith that culminated with her finding him with glass pipes, other drug paraphernalia and a large amount of pornography in their home.
Court documents mention “severe drug dependency issues” and state that “wife believes husband is so withdrawn as a result of the substance abuse that he cannot make rational decisions.”
She filed for divorce in June and was granted an order of protection against Smith.
