INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. (CBS 12) — Nine days ago, a 62-year-old woman was shot and killed by an Indian River County deputy after that deputy said Susan Teel lunged at him with a knife.
Friday, Teel’s husband expressed what happened that night. Dr. Dudley Teel said his wife was cutting her wrists with a knife and had been on anti-depressants for a while.
Dr. Teel struggled to talk at first but then opened up about his relationship with his wife.
“She was wonderful and we had just recently moved into this house and I switched my job so I didn't have to work as much and we just spent lots of time together. We'd sit on the back porch in the morning and we'd have coffee and watch the birds, I know it sounds dumb, but that's what we did. She would go to the gym and workout and I would go walk and we'd get back around 1:30 and then we'd go play golf,” said Dr. Teel.
