    NC - Lauren Hugelmaier, 29, stabbed to death, Raleigh, 1 Sept 2017 *Arrest*

    I did not find a thread already started; if there is, please merge

    Married less than one year. Lauren Phelps (29) found stabbed, died at hospital; Husband, Matthew Phelps (29)arrested for murder, no bond, at Wake County Jail:

    RALEIGH The conversation between Matthew James Phelps and the 911 dispatcher he phoned just after 1:10 a.m. Friday sounded almost clinical.
    Phelps gives the dispatcher his northeast Raleigh address, name and phone number.
    “Tell me exactly what happened,” the dispatcher said to him.
    Phelps sighed and replied, “I think I killed my ..,” according to a 911 recording made public Friday afternoon.

    911 call: "I think I killed my ..."

    Murder suspect says he took too much cold medicine, then woke to find his wife dead

    With 911 call:

    The couple were married for less than a year. Both were devoted to their Christian faith. Matthew Phelps was studying to become a pastor and his wife a Sunday school teacher.

    "I had a dream, and then I turn on the lights and she's dead on the floor," Matthew Phelps told a 911 dispatcher. "I have blood all over me, and there's a bloody knife on the bed, and I think I did it."

    Yeah, no. Corididan does not cause violent behavior. I am guessing the authorities will find a motive. I was just thinking how often Raleigh is mentioned in murders lately. There was the couple who killed the guy's ex-wife and brought her body to Texas, the Google guy who may have been innocent in the murder of his wife, and the guy whose best friend since junior high killed his wife. Weird, because Raleigh isn't a gigantic city.

    This medication can be used to get high apparently. It can cause some serious side effects when misused. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3977765/

    Sounds like he was planning his defense right away.

    Well as far as that goes, he could have known all of this and used it as a cover up. I'm not defending him in the least, just saying those side effects are scary.

    well according to the 911 call, he awoke to find himself covered in dried blood. so his claim at least would be that he took too much medicine, woke up and stabbed his wife, got back into bed, slept, woke up later and found what he had done. Anyway my point is, he could have been "freaking out on cold meds" hours earlier but by the time of the call was in a different state.

    Yes, that 911 call is completely bizarre. Thanks for starting the thread, Spellbound! I searched awhile ago and was surprised that there wasn't one yet. This is going to be interesting.

    Sounds like he planned his defense in advance! Notice he doesn't know what happened, but had already figured out cause and effect. That's quick thinking for just having discovered your stabbed-to-death dead wife. I wonder if his computer and phone searches will find "coricidin" searches. Or was he sly enough to dispose of hard drives and history?

    Such a horrible tragedy. I get the feeling no one in his wife's family believes him. Lauren's obituary under her maiden name, no mention of her husband.

    RIP Lauren

    Lots of things will throw light on this story in the coming days- Autopsy coupled with blood analysis of accused, witness statements etc

    According to his Facebook page, Phelps worked at Dunlap Lawn Service. He graduated from Kentucky's Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in 2011 where he studied evangelism and mission.
