Suspect in double murder-suicide claims he was abused; manifesto, voice recording released

LAS VEGAS - Startling new details have emerged about a man who police say shot and killed his parents before turning the gun on himself.

Aaron Wulf, the alleged killer, mailed 8 News NOW a 585 page manifesto and voice recording before the double murder-suicide that arrived at the 8 News NOW station one day after the incident. 

Metro Police says the 36-year-old suffered from mental illness.

In his nearly 600 page note, Wulf said he had to kill his mom and dad and himself because he had dealt with so much abuse in his life and it had to stop.

"If you are listening to this that means I am dead," Wulf said on the recording.

In the chilling audio from Wulf, he says he was physically and sexually abused as a child.

"I remember going to kindergarten with bruises so bad I couldn't sit down," he said.

In the manifesto, Wulf said he killed his parents, Arthur Wulf and Jan Morgan-Wulf because they had instilled pain on him his whole life.
   
8 News NOW also learned Wulf was a child actor who went on to appear on TV shows like Monk and Girlfriends as an adult.

However, Wulf said his parents took everything he earned.

"Ok fine so I survived to 18 -- great!  Get out of the house away and never see those assholes again.  And what happened?  They took all that money I made equivalent to $250,000 I made in today's earnings and they used it," Wulf said on the recording.

In the audio recording, Wulf said he begged for help, but no one would listen.

"Now I'm dead because no one would listen to me," Wulf said. 
"The police wouldn't listen to me; the teachers and coaches who know about it wouldn't listen, and they didn't report it."

Wulf called his well-thought out suicide manifesto "Justice for Aaron."
He said he wrote it because he knew his parents would discredit him.

"The Wulfs will say he was crazy; he was evil, he was a terrible man," he said.

So what pushed Wulf over the edge to the point that he killed his parents in their vacation home in Summerlin?

It was the death of his fiance.   

"I begged her to come back," Wulf said.  "I begged for things to be different.  It's been the same way my whole life -- I begged for things to be different."

At the end of his voice recording, Wulf said this (the double murder-suicide) could have been stopped.  

It should not have happened to me. I gave people hundreds of chances to make this better," Wulf said.

The Clark County Coroner's Office has not officially identified the shooter in this murder-suicide.  In the meantime, 8 News NOW has reached out to Metro Police to turn over the manifesto and recording to them as evidence.
