Creigh Deeds

Bath County Commonwealth’s Attorney John Singleton has determined there was “no criminal involvement” in stabbing of Senator Creigh Deeds — and the subsequent suicide by his son Gus — and as a result, he will not pursue any criminal charges. Police say Gus Deeds stabbed his dad multiple times in the head and torso November 19th before using a rifle to take his own life. State Police say since then, they had been investigating “all circumstances surrounding this incident, to include the actions of individuals employed by Rockbridge Area Community Services.”
