Virginia has launched an investigation of why state Sen. Creigh Deeds’ son was released from an emergency custody order 13 hours before he stabbed his father multiple times at their Bath County home Tuesday morning and then shot himself fatally.

The behavioral health division of the Office of the Inspector General opened an investigation Wednesday. In another development, Gov. Bob McDonnell directed Secretary of Health and Human Resources William A. Hazel Jr. to conduct “a full internal review of the events leading up to Tuesday’s tragic situation,” said McDonnell spokesman Tucker Martin.
