MCKEESPORT, Pa. — It has been more than two months since former Pittsburgh Steelers player Sam Davis was found dead inside a local personal care home.
Davis was reported missing in September and found hours later dead inside the New Life Personal Care Home in McKeesport.
The state of Pennsylvania just finished an investigation into the personal care home, but Davis’ family still wants answers.
“Thanksgiving was hard, I can’t even pretend like it wasn’t,” said Vanessa Davis, the victim’s daughter. “Literally just waiting is all I can say. We ask, we wait and then we ask again.”
The only information the Davis family really has is how he died. Investigators said it was a massive heart attack.

According to the violation report from the state’s investigation, an annual medical evaluation was not timely and a medication administration was missing information.
However, the inspection report makes no mention of all the time that passed before Davis’ body was found inside the facility. He was reported missing at 6:50 a.m., but he wasn’t found until about 14 hours later.
Channel 11 asked the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services if the personal care home would be held accountable for negligence since Davis was in there for so long before being found.
