Officials: Man found dead with his daughter died of overdose
PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Officials say a Pittsfield man who was found dead in his apartment with his 11-year-old daughter died of a drug overdose— but the cause of the girl’s death remains unknown.
Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless’s office said Monday that medical examiner reports indicate 47-year-old Anthony Nazareth overdosed on heroin. The cause of death for Hannah Nazareth is listed as undetermined.
The two were found dead in their Pittsfield home in August. The bodies were found by police while they were conducting a well-being check.
Capeless’s office says Hannah Nazareth probably died “as much as a month before her father.”
The office says Anthony Nazareth had provided false and misleading information about her whereabouts to different agencies and people in July.
