Deeds Released From Hospital, Police Continue Investigation

Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds was released from the University of Virginia Medical Center this morning.

Deeds was airlifted from his home in Bath County Tuesday after police say his son stabbed him multiple times and then killed himself.

State police investigators are still attempting to understand what prompted the violent encounter between Deeds and his 24-year-old son, Gus.

An emergency custody order was reportedly issued for Gus Deeds, but he was released because mental health workers could not find him a psychiatric bed.

Shortly after being released, Deeds tweeted: "I am alive so must live. Some wounds won't heal. Your prayers and your friendship are important to me."
