Public records show Stephen Wolf is a licensed physician and owns the house with his wife. Stephen Wolf was a defendant in a settled medical negligence suit in Oklahoma County last year. Oklahoma Medical Board records show Wolf has never been disciplined for a job-related infraction.
Crime scene tape blocked off the house this morning and wrapped around a basketball hoop in the driveway to the porch of a house next door.
A neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous, said she often saw the Wolf family gardening together and working outdoors. She also said the Wolfs recently had a large Halloween party and nothing seemed amiss with the family.
The neighbor described the family as "close" and the boy as "sweet."
A telephone answering service employee said Wolf's office at NW 63 and Santa Fe Avenue, which he shares with another physician, is closed today and scheduled to re-open Tuesday.
Online medical services directories list Wolf as an internal medicine specialist, and the state Medical Board lists him as a 1988 graduate of the University of Oklahoma's medical school.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation will aid local police, Mask said.
The incident is the second homicide in Nichols Hills this year. The first occurred one block east of the Wolf home in the 1600 block of Elmhurst Avenue on Sept. 7 when police Sgt. Joe Land fatally shot suspected burglar Dustin H. Edelin, 34.
