(Newser) – "Oh God, I'm going to kill myself," unhinged octuplet mom Nadya Suleman repeatedly told a police dispather last year as she frantically searched for a missing son, according to emergency phone call tapes. Suleman called 911 after her 5-year-old son went missing from the front yard, only to find him a few minutes later after he returned from a walk, AP reports.

Suleman's repeated threats of suicide prompted a chiding from the dispatcher. "Don't say that in front of your other child, OK?" the dispatcher tells Suleman. "Keep yourself under control for your other child." The call ended with Suleman sobbing hysterically upon finding the child, saying: "He went on a walk and came back by himself."
