((denise valdez)) >> george knapp of the i-team has the first public look -- at how the husband answered tough questions. (( ))
11:14 pm
use---subjects he knows well, according to what he revealed during a sworn deposition earlier this year. question: were you using any drugs after your wife passed away in that next week? dr. brent dennis: i can't say for certainty. question, ok, so do you engage--did you engage in the use of controlled substances at or around the time of your wife's death? dennis: occasionally. question: what is your controlled substance of choice? brent dennis: not sure i have one. the reason for the grilling by former district attorney david is a civil lawsuit filed in connection with the january 2015 death of susan winters, the doctor's wife. susan was an energetic 48 year old attorney and part-time judge, mother of two teenage girls. the marriage was stormy at times and susan had undergone counseling. still, her parents could hardly believe it when they got the phone call from brent dennis. dan winters: he called and said susan has hurt herself. she tried to commit suicide, and i said brent are you sure? and he said, my god, dan, she drank
11:15 pm
george knapp: but you didn't believe it from the beginning? avis winters: no. i didn't no. no. dan winters: she had two daughters. she loved them more than anything. if she was going to commit suicide, she certainly wouldn't have done it in front of those girls, and she certainly wouldn't have done it where it when paramedics arrived at her henderson home the morning of january 3rd, susan had no pulse, but the emt's got her heart beating again. she died hours later from a deadly combination of anti-freeze and pain pills. henderson police did a cursory investigation, interviewed the husband, and declared it a suicide. but susan's parents say they got a weird vibe from brent dennis. dan winters: he called, he was telling julie, he said, i just got interviewed by one of the
11:16 pm
think i passed. gk i think i passed? dan yeah that's what he said. the family reached out to former fbi agent jim perry who quickly discovered dark secrets about brent dennis. three to four times per week, for a period of about a year, dr. dennis made trips to visit someone at the orleans hotel. each time----bank records show-- he withdrew hundreds of dollars from an atm machine at the hotel in order to buy cocaine and other drugs. depositon. tony sgro: you purchased cocaine from him. do you ingest it right there on the spot instead of taking it with you to ingest later? brent dennis: it varied. so sometimes you did it on the spot? yes. tony sgro/attorney for winters family: it's cocaine, it's alcohol. it's oxycodone. it''s methamphetamine. it's valium. it''s a whole menu of stuff...... the atm withdrawals are pretty much in line with what he made
11:17 pm
why focus on the doctor's drug use? because of what sgro found once he subpoenaed the family's phone records. those records show that two days before susan died, she repeatedly tried to contact her husband's drug dealer, possibly to warn him to stop. and sgro says, she also confronted her husband and threatened to report him to the medical board. sgro: when susan says to her husba you to the board, things quickly unravel from that point. they start fighting, they start arguing, and susan would be dead within two to three days. sgro says the phone records also show that on the last night of susan winters life, as she lay unconscious and in pain, her husband called his drug dealer in the wee hours, then traveled to the orleans.
