NICHOLS HILLS, Okla. -- The 911 call to Nichols Hills Police was frantic and confusing on the morning of November 16, 2009.

As Nichols Hills Sergeant Michael Puckett entered the house of Dr. Stephen Wolf, he interrupted a deadly knife attack.

"My son is dead. My son is dead," Dr. Wolf's wife, Mary Wolf, can be heard screaming to the 911 operator. "Send an ambulance, hurry!"

Nine-year-old Tommy Wolf had been asleep in his bed before his father started stabbing him with multiple kitchen knives.

"The only thing he kept repeating over and over is that he's got the devil inside him. 'He's got the devil inside him. I've got to get it out.' That's all he really said," said Sgt. Puckett.

The investigation would reveal a bloody, psychotic episode where an apparently loving father stabbed his only son to death.

"Talk about the greatest betrayal," said Nichols Hills Police Chief, Richard Mask. "What Tommy must have been thinking about while he was being murdered by the person he loved and trusted the most on the planet. (That's) tough to deal with."
