CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- Detective David White was gunned down Feb. 6, 2012, as deputies approached a suspected meth house in Middleburg.

In a newly released interview conducted by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Lt. Barry Abramowitz said, "The intention of going there was to do a "knock-and-talk."

Newly released photos taken inside the home show the all the ingredients needed for making meth. The cook, investigators say, was Ted Tilley. The 36-year-old ex-con was killed that night during a shootout with deputies, but not before they say he fired the bullet that killed White.

When the FDLE told Tilley's father what happened, happened and that his son was dead, he didn't feel sorry for himself or his son. He felt sympathy for Det. White's family.

Frank Glen Tilley said, "Between you and me, I grieve for the deputy's family, not my son."

Those who knew Tilley say he was in the throes of drug addiction.

Debbie Tilley said, "When we saw him in June, his behavior was definitely different than it had been prior to that."

Suspect Jerry Daniels told investigators Tilley had been "pretty paranoid" in the time leading to the shooting.

Daniels, 16, was living in the home where the shootout occurred, along with his mother, Chastity Prescott, and two other friends, Jennifer Alder and Ryan Wilder.

It was a home with a sign that read, "Danger: Many illegal activities in progress."

And while they didn't actually fire the shot that killed White, they all face murder charges.

The remaining suspects in the case are still awaiting trial.

Detective Matt Hanlin was also shot that night. He survived and is back on the force.
