In Virginia, a criminal investigation is delaying the release of a report on an attack on Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds by his son.
The Office of the Inspector General's report on the attack on state Sen. Deeds was completed on March 10, but the Virginia State Police asked the inspector general to withhold the report from the public until it can complete a criminal investigation to determine whether or not charges should be filed.
The senator was attacked with a knife by his 24-year-old son, who later killed himself. The son had been released the previous day from an emergency custody order because a psychiatric bed could not be found for him.
In the days after the incident, several facilities said they had not been contacted to see if a psychiatric bed was available for Deeds. Now prosecutors are reviewing the report to determine whether or not the events of that day constitute criminal wrongdoing.
