â€œI've known him long enough to tell you there's no way in the world he would hurt anyone,â€ Cassil said.
â€œHe is one of the kindest people I've ever been around. If you needed $2,000 to keep your home or get kicked out, Teddy would have the money for you. He is one of the most wonderful people in the world.â€
Cassil said he is not officially representing Teddy Mitchell at this time. Instead, Cassil said he is speaking out as Mitchell's friend.
â€œHe is not a suspect. If there is a reason to represent him, I will, but there's no reason,â€ Cassil said.
Cassil said Teddy Mitchell has provided police everything they have asked for during the course of the investigation.
â€œHe hasn't withheld anything,â€ Cassil said. â€œHe has given them his computer, his cell phone, anything they have asked for, and he will continue to help them every way he can.â€
Cassil said he attended Julie Mitchell's funeral Wednesday at LifeChurch.tv in Edmond.
â€œThe service was beautiful,â€ Cassil said.
â€œTeddy and many of his relatives spoke. Everyone spoke beautiful things about Julie. How Teddy got up and spoke, I don't know. He loved her so much, and their daughter means so much to him.â€
