For almost a month, authorities kept famed marine biologist and so-called "ocean doctor" David Guggenheim from seeing his wife after she was brutally attacked in the couple's Washington, D.C. apartment.
The Washington Post reported that police filed court documents claiming Svetlana Guggenheim let them know her husband had attacked her.
Now, she has no recollection of writing a note, holding her husband responsible for the beating. She still cannot speak because of feeding and breathing tubes. She communicates mostly through notes, according to the paper.
Though he's now able to see his wife, Guggenheim told the "Today" show that he believes police consider himself a suspect in the attack that left his wife with a fractured skull and left eye-socket and bruises on her arms.
The marine biologist, who has been featured on TV discussing the BP oil spill and other environmental topics, came home to find police searching his apartment on Tuesday.
Police have declined to comment on the ongoing investigation, according to the Post.
