PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A local woman is one step closer to getting some answers surrounding the death of her elderly father after his body was exhumed and an autopsy was performed today.

Aldo Giannini, 85, of Turtle Creek, was one of three patients who died on the same day back in November at Juniper Village in Forest Hills.

The family has hired forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht; and today, he performed an autopsy and removed tissue samples.

“I will also examine the records from the assisted living facility where Mr. Giannini was a patient and will correlate those findings,” said Dr. Wecht.

The doctor at Juniper Village listed the cause of Giannini’s death as a heart attack.
