Assault Report on Sen. Deeds Withheld as State Police Investigate

March 26, 2014

A state police investigation has delayed the public release of a report on an attack on Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds by his son.

The Office of the Inspector General investigated what happened to 24-year-old Austin "Gus" Deeds, who attacked his father, Sen. Deeds, with a knife on Nov. 19, 2013, at their home in Bath County and then killed himself.

The younger Deeds had been released the previous day from an emergency custody order (ECO) because a psychiatric bed could not be found for him.

The inspector general says the report was completed on March 10th, but it's being withheld until State Police finish their investigation.
