Katie-Nichols_3KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Police did not have to look long for a suspect wanted in a stabbing case earlier this week when a woman walked directly up to a news camera and confessed to stabbing her mother, claiming that her mother was a powerful leader in a Satanic cult and had to be stopped. Katie Nichols told WVLT-TV that she stabbed her 61-year-old mother, Lauri Nichols, multiple times early Tuesday morning. “The satanic cult in this city has been casting satanic spells on me for three, four days.

She was so powerful, I had no idea, I had no idea that my mother was that powerful,” Nichols said. More
