LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified three people killed at a home in northwest Las Vegas this week as a couple and their troubled son who sent police and media a detailed accounting of his plans to kill his parents and himself.

Arthur Wulf, 69, was shot multiple times, and Jan Morgan-Wulf, 66, was beaten, stabbed and shot to death in a home where Aaron Wulf, 36, was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the Clark County coroner said Friday. The parents’ deaths were ruled homicides. The son’s death was ruled a suicide.

The bodies were found Wednesday at the house in a gated Summerlin community after a relative in Illinois called police in Las Vegas to report receiving a disturbing email and hearing screams and other sounds on an open telephone line, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported (https://bit.ly/1O7V9Jt ).

Aaron Wulf was an actor who had bit parts on the TV shows “Monk” and “Girlfriends” more than a decade ago.

The Chicago Tribune reported (https://trib.in/1r4HoA8 ) that Arthur Wulf was a lawyer and former school trustee in suburban Glenview, Illinois, and that Jan Morgan-Wulf was a former Chicago schools speech pathologist and real estate agent in Northbrook, Illinois.

Police in Las Vegas said Aaron Wulf had a history of mental illness, but no criminal record, the Review-Journal said, and the department on Wednesday received mailed documents about the slayings and his death.

KLAS-TV in Las Vegas reported (https://bit.ly/1t6o87r ) it later also received from Wulf what it called a 585-page manifesto and voice recording that claimed he had been abused as a child.

“If you are listening to this that means I am dead,” Wulf said on the recording. It says he begged for help, but no one would listen.

“In any murder case, we’re asked, ‘Why?’” Las Vegas police Sgt. Jeff Clark, a department spokesman, told the Review-Journal. “When it’s a murder-suicide, we don’t have a chance to really get an idea. Hopefully this will give us some more insight into that, but it might give us more questions than answers.”
