SPOKANE, Wash. - Timothy Suckow's criminal history goes back some 30 years, to 1982, in Spokane. But what might reveal more about him, his thought process and his actions, is his disturbing mental history. KHQ's Kelsey Watts poured over court documents from 1995 that detail Suckow's court history. They state he became "a competent adult and functional human being" around age 30, after being medicated for mental illness and bipolar manic-depression.

But before age 30, in 1982, Suckow burglarized what was Pieroni's restaurant on East Third in Spokane. He also burglarized a home on North Campbell in Otis Orchards. A year later a "violent psychotic disturbance" led him to destroy his apartment on North Colton Street.

He was then admitted to Sacred Heart, where medical staff made disturbing notes about his "history of devil worshipping, explosive anger, and paranoia," noting Suckow himself said "I'm always hearing voices, Satan talking to me." A year later, his condition only got worse, and he spoke of being possessed by a demon. The documents go on to say that Suckow attempted suicide a number of times, and has been admitted and discharged from Eastern State Hospital at least three times.

Suckow was under supervision by Washington's Department of Corrections until 1995. Since then he has had no documented arrests in Spokane.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - After Prince had to be revived from a drug overdose a week before his death, one friend told the musical superstar that he needed to stop taking painkillers. But Prince said he couldn’t — his hands hurt so much that if he quit, he’d have to stop performing. “This piano tour I think was getting to his hands,” singer Judith Hill told investigators, according to a transcript of her interview.
