Why Did Michael Miller Murder His Family? Wife, Family, Documentary

I just killed my family with the knife; This isn’t a joke!

On May 30, 2009, a Gelanda police dispatcher received a shocking phone call from Michael Miller claiming that. 

“I just killed My Family with the knife, all of them, all three of them.”

Miller stabbed his wife and two children to death after screaming Eminem lyrics; Miller told the police officers that he was being possessed and visualized his own wife as a demon. 


Miller was 29 years old at the time of this incident, working at a pizza shop and living a happy life in Gelanda, Arizona. With his wife and two children, a 10-year-old -a daughter and a 5year old son, whom he loved the most.


Miller was bipolar and schizophrenic, believing in both the “Devil and God.”

Miller told the police investigators that a night before this incident, he tucked his son into the bed, and they said the prayer together, asking God to keep them safe.


On May 30, early in the morning, Micheal killed his two children after they woke up to their mother screaming and killed his wife. Miller said that he threatened his wife with a kitchen knife during the dispute when his kids arrived because of their mother screaming.

I was threatening my wife and kids to come out, and I killed my wife and killed both my kids.”

He claimed that God and Lucifer told him to kill, and he was possessed by satan. 

He also stated that he stabbed his 4-year-old son 11 times because he loved him the most, but surprisingly his four-year-old son survived.


On audio with the dispatcher, Michae said that he hasn’t been sleeping lately and is having a hard time sleeping.

He was asked by the dispatcher if he had ever had any type of thought of doing this before which he responded, never, never, never ever; it just hit me like a brick in the face, and I did not know why I did it, I don’t even have a reason.

When cops arrived at the scene, they found out Michael was right and hadn’t been dreaming; his wife and ten-year-old daughter were dead, while his four-year-old son was severely injured. 


Miller pleaded guilty to using a kitchen knife to stab his wife and daughter to death and was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing them; additionally, he was given a ten-and-a-half-year imprisonment for attempting to murder his four-year-old son.
