Police release 9-1-1 call of man allegedly confessing to murder

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have released a recording of the chilling words from a man who called 9-1-1 to confess to murdering an elderly woman at the nursing home where he worked.

Dispatch: what is your emergency?

Caller: I need to report a murder.

Dispatch: OK did it just happen?

Caller: No it happened in 2007.

Dispatch: Ok and you know who did it?

Caller: I did it.

Dispatch: And how did you murder them?

Caller: I injected them with insulin.

Dispatch: Was there a reason?

Caller: No.

Police say David Satterfield made the call six years after killing 86-year-old Marcelline Vale.

Satterfield worked as a medication technician at Parkway Nursing and Rehab Center on Eastern Parkway, though he is now in jail.

Police say he also confessed to injecting two other women with insulin, but they have not found sufficient evidence for additional charges.

No trial date has been set for Vale's murder, but his next court appearance is set for November.
