(CNN) - Sheriff's deputies had been called to the home of Virginia state Sen. Creigh Deeds a day before the fight that left his son dead and the veteran politician with multiple stab wounds, investigators reported Wednesday.
Deputies responded to a "nonemergency call for assistance" at Deeds' home in Millboro, in the rural western part of the state, on Monday, Virginia State Police said. The deputies made no arrests, and no charges were filed, the agency said.
Great to hear Sen. Deeds will pull through this. Still such a sad story and highlights mental health in this country.
This was a very sad event. Sometimes you just don't know what pain and sorry someone carries until something this bad happens. God bless this family.
