Psychiatrist: Bedell suffered from mental illness
Bedell was diagnosed as bipolar, or manic depressive, and had been in and out of treatment programs for years. His psychiatrist, J. Michael Nelson, said Bedell tried to self-medicate with marijuana, inadvertently making his symptoms more pronounced.
“Without the stabilizing medication, the symptoms of his disinhibition, agitation and fearfulness complicated the lack of treatment,” Nelson said.
