Tony Allen Riddle (7365)



12/11/2012: Riddle became suicidal and drug-dependent after the suicide of his first wife, then relapsed severely after the death of his second wife years later. He threatened suicide. Deputies responded. They tried to reason with him for about 45 minutes. He pointed a gun at them. They fatally shot him. Riddle's mother, Teresa Barker, did not blame deputies for their handling of the situation. http://www.ktxs.com/news/Officer-shoots-kills-suicidal-man-in-Taylor-County/17741706
