KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — In audio tapes released to various media outlets from the 911 call of Florida triple-murder suspect David Eugene Smith to a Knox County dispatcher, Smith says the world is under evil control and speaks of demons and reptilian beings that eat souls.

Smith called 911 at 9:44 a.m. on May 27 from a Knox County motel room. He said his name was ‘David, from the Bible, Prince David,” and he was wanted for murder in Polk County, where he said he killed his sister and two others. He also said he had a .40-caliber rifle and was “attempting suicide by cop” because “this is what must be done.”
