When a WLVT news crew arrived at the scene of a stabbing in Knoxville on Tuesday morning, they had no idea they were about to get the story of a lifetime.
Hilary Magacs was interviewing the neighbor of the victim, a 61-year old woman who had been stabbed several times, when another woman walked up to the cameras and identified herself as the victim's daughter. She then went into detail about how she had stabbed her own mother because of her involvement in a Satanic cult.
"The satanic cult in this city has been casting satanic spells on me for three, four days. I'm exhausted. I came home and found out my mom was the ringleader and was trying to kill my daughter," Katie Nichols said. "I had to kill her -she was going to kill both of us. She was so powerful, I had no idea - I had no idea that my mother was that powerful...when I left, she was still breathing. I stabbed her three times and she should have died. She was still breathing. I don't know what happened to her afterwards or where they took her, but she was the antichrist - she did not die. We went in my car, we ended up in a little rural area and just waited for the sign that it was safe to come back. She had symbolic representations of my death, my daughter's death, every nuclear explosion that was supposed to happen - that's not going to now. Because all of the satanic cult has been rounded up and killed now."
Nichols' mother was taken to the hospital with stab wounds to the neck, chest, and stomach and underwent surgery. The last update on her condition was that she was in ICU. Nichols was quickly arrested after the news crew called 911 and is now in jail on a first degree attempted murder charge, among others.
