Alligator ‘God told me he was a lizard’: Seattle man accused of killing his brother with sword

A Seattle man who prosecutors say may be mentally ill was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder, accused of killing his brother with a four-foot-long sword.

Buckey Wolfe called 911 at 6:40 p.m. on Sunday and told a dispatcher he’d killed his brother because he thought his brother was a lizard, the charges say. He continued to ramble, saying “Kill me, kill me, I can’t live in this reality,” and “God told me he was a lizard,” according to charging papers.

It actually seems to be about as weird (but even more disturbing) than it sounds.

The story seems to be missing one key detail: was his brother actually a lizard or not?

I’m not sure of the cladistics of it all, but he was definitely a fish. Cladistically speaking, I mean.

If he was, the authorities are not in on it as he was charged with homicide, not lacerticide.

PS. The article also does not inform us if he was out of bubblegum.

No.

Necropsy reports show that the brother was, in fact, a Rhynchocephalid.
