Senator Creigh Deeds is suing the state of Virginia. From the Washington Post,Â
State Sen. R. Creigh Deeds has filed a $6 million wrongful death lawsuit against the state of Virginia, a mental health evaluator and an agency that did not find a hospital bed for his mentally ill son, who in 2013 stabbed the senator before killing himself…..
â€œVirginiaâ€™s mental health care system failed my son, Gus,â€ Deeds said in a statement. â€œI am committed that my sonâ€™s needless death shall not be in vain, and that no other Virginia family suffer this tragedy.â€
