State Senator Creigh Deeds might sue a community services board over the treatment his son Gus received shortly before he took his own life. Deeds’ lawyer says the state lawmaker has filed a notice of intent to sue to four local governments that are served by the Rockbridge Area Community Services Board, along with the board itself. Gus Deeds stabbed his father 13 times and later committed suicide at their Bath County home November 19th. One day before those incidents, employees of the community services board said they couldn’t locate a psychiatric bed for Gus Deeds. A state agency later found that several nearby beds were available. Attorney Monica Mroz says Senator Deeds has not made a decision yet, but he’s preserving his right to file a lawsuit.
