Brother of slain Albany doctor mourns his death

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The brother of a former Albany pediatrician killed in his home this week says "the real murder" happened 26 years ago.

Investigators are still working to determine if 60-year old Tommy Paschal committed suicide or was murdered in his home Tuesday.

In 1988 Paschal was permanently disabled when investigators say his wife tried to kill him by injecting him with a powerful paralyzing drug.

Dean Paschal says his brother was never the same person after that attack.

"I consider the real murder occurred in 1988. That's when a magnificent human being was pretty much destroyed for all time," said Dean Paschal.   "This , whatever happened here. Suicide or murder, was the end of a nightmare."

Dean Paschal says his brother will be cremated.

He plans to hold a memorial service for Tommy Paschal in the future.
