Vigil for Senator Deeds

Where: University of Virginia, Amphitheater
When: Thursday November 21, 2013. at 7:00 P.M.

On Twitter, Democrats like Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe are crossing party lines and showing sympathy for Senator Deeds.

"Dorothy and I are praying for the Deeds family at this difficult time," said McAuliffe in a tweet.

An aid with E.W. Jackson (R) said Tuesday he also prayed for the Senator, privately among his staff.

Virginia State Police said Tuesday, the investigation into the events that unfolded are still ongoing.

"State police has determined that Senator Deeds and his son, Austin C. Deeds who also went by Gus, 24 years of age, had an altercation at the Deeds' residence. The motive and the absolute circumstances surrounding what led up to the altercation is still very much the focus of this investigation," said Corinne Geller, a Virginia State Police spokesperson.

On Thursday, College Republicans and Democrats from the University of Virginia will unite for a vigil to show their respect to Senator Deeds.
