INDIANAPOLIS (WXIN) -- Kristen Wolf, a 28-year-old former Indiana Department of Corrections employee, is charged with two counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, and one count of attempted battery by means of a deadly weapon in connection with a triple stabbing earlier this month.
Police say she killed two people and seriously injured a third person in a stabbing at a west side apartment complex on May 11.
Police say 24-year-old Victoria Cook was ambushed and stabbed to death by Wolf after answering a knock at her door. A second victim, 28-year-old Dylan Dickover, tried to stop the attack, but he died after Wolf stabbed him in the leg, severing a major artery.
Three other people inside the apartment survived. None of them knew the attacker.
Police tracked down Wolf because she lost her hat at the scene of the attack. The hat had Indiana Department of Corrections stitched on a patch, and her name was also written on the tag. Police picked Wolf up from work at the Madison Correctional Facility on May 22.
Police executed a search warrant of her home, and found a two-page note on her bedroom nightstand, wondering what it would be like to kill someone and how she took inspiration from serial killers. She also said she didn’t want to kill someone she knew.
