Nursing home 911 call on behalf of Steven Cole’s mother.
Steven Cole also called his mother, who is being treated for cancer in an extended care facility. The nursing staff called 911 on behalf of Steven Cole’s mother, Barbara Cole, at 12:08:26 a.m. Tuesday, June 14, 2011.
Nursing staff at an extended care facility relayed information to Northwest Central Dispatch System (911 center) in Arlington Heights about a phone call that their patient received. Barbara Cole’s son Steven M. Cole called his mother to tell her that he killed his father. A male staff member at the facility called 911 to inform the police about the telephone call and to request that police check on the well-being of the father at his home in the 2600 block of North Stratford Road.
A third 911 call was received at 12:20:17 a.m. Tuesday, June 14, 2011.
Steven M. Cole’s sister called 911 to report details that her brother gave her when he called her at home after midnight Monday/Tuesday (June 13, 2011/June 14, 2011). She apparently called 911 while Steven M. Cole was sitting at the kitchen table near the murder scene in the home on Stratford Road. He was waiting on hold on another phone line with his sister. She told police that her brother told her that he stabbed his father in the heart and eyes, and hit him in the head with a crowbar. Cole’s sister was also aware that her brother had called their mother at the nursing home. She also informed the 911 center that her husband was going to check the scene and check in with police.
Steven Cole’s sister also gave helpful information about the murder scene and the location of the body — describing the steps to a lower level living room where she said her brother jumped on top of their father and started hitting him with a crowbar. When the 911 calltaker asked if she could relay the condition of the father, such as whether he was breathing, the sister replied that Steven Cole said their father was dead.
A fourth 911 call (audio not available) was received about 12:33 a.m. from Steven Cole, during which police were trying to get Cole to come out of the house and surrender with his hands up. Cole told the calltaker “All of a sudden since my mom’s out of the house, he turned on me.” Cole told a 911 calltaker that he told his father that his mother would be calling the next day to talk to him about their relationship. His father then told him to shut up and that it was 11:30. Steven Cole told his father that he was feeling suicidal, and said his father, Stuart Cole told him, “I don’t care if you’re suicidal, go kill yourself.” The son then told the 911 calltaker, “How do you tell your son that?” Cole said he confronted his father with a crowbar, and that he told his father that he would stab him. Cole said his father offered his car while reaching for a fireplace poker. Steven Cole then abruptly stopped talking. Steven Cole then started making his way toward the front of the house about 12:52 a.m. Tuesday. At 12:55 a.m. police announced on radio that Steven Cole was face down on the driveway. Police logged that Cole was in custody at “zero-zero-5-5.”
While in custody, Steven Cole made similar utterances — talking about suicide and his father’s abuse — while he was walked in handcuffs from the house to the rescue ambulance that was waiting in a staging area near the crime scene.
