Posted September 13, 2018 04:59:37In a story published Sunday evening, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s editorial board published a statement that read, “We apologize to the families of the late Dr. Paul Nuttall, a prominent Pittsburgh physician, for our lack of transparency in his death.”
Nuttall’s parents were reported missing on June 14, 2018, after he was found unconscious in his apartment at the home of his father-in-law.
Nuttalls father-and-son team said Nuttall had a heart attack while in the process of leaving for a doctor’s appointment, but there was no indication he was suffering from an enlarged heart.
A physician’s official report found that Nuttall was suffering cardiac arrhythmias and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
The Post-News was among the media outlets that published a post from the Nuttall family asking for privacy in Nuttall’s death.
The statement added, “My son’s family and I have been working with police and with a forensic pathologist to try to piece together what happened to Paul.
It has become clear that we cannot yet say anything concrete about what happened that night.
However, we want to share with the public what we believe happened to him and the circumstances surrounding his death: that he was attacked while leaving the house, that he suffered cardiac arrhs, that his father and son knew what he was going through and that they tried to help him.”
The statement also said Nuttells parents had requested privacy in his memory.
