What caused Dr. Stephen Wolf to kill his son?
Dr. Stephen Wolf, 51, faces first-degree murder charges in Oklahoma City. According to this story on CNN, Dr. Wolf is being charged for killing his 9-year-old son. We have very few details at this time, but this is a very sad and troubling story. My heart goes out to his family and to all those affected by this tragic loss.
Doctors are often held to a higher standing so when something shocking like this occurs, we all struggle to understand what could have caused this person do act in such a way. The human mind is complex and mysterious and it's something that we will never fully understand in our lifetime. Advances in medical technology will never unravel the inner workings of the complex human mind.
