August 15, 2019


GET INSIDE AND COULD ONLY ATTACK FROM OUTSIDE. THEY SAY THE HOUSE WAS VACANT. A FAMILY IS SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS TONIGHT AFTER THEIR LOVED ONE WAS FOUND DEAD. STEVEN O’BRIEN’S BODY WAS DISCOVERED NEAR SOME RAILROAD TRACKS ON THE SOUTH SIDE LAST WEEK. RACHELE MONGIOVI REPORTS HIS FAMILY HADN’T HEARD FROM HIM IN MONTHS AND THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. Reporter: IT’S BEEN ONE WEEK SINCE 38-YEAR-OLD STEVEN O’BRIEN’S BODY WAS FOUND NEAR RAILROAD TRACKS OFF OF EAST CARSON STREET. HE WAS SPOTTED NEAR A FENCE AROUND 8 A.M. LAST FRIDAY. POLICE SAY THE DEATH, HOWEVER, WASN’T RECENT. O’BRIEN’S FAMILY LIVES IN BOSTON. TONIGHT THEY’RE SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS. THE LAST PERSON THAT SMOKE TO HIM WAS HIS WIFE. WE’RE TRYING TO WRAP OUR HEADS AROUND WHY SHE DIDN’T REPORT HIM MISSING. YOU KNOW, WE’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR HIM FOR TWO MONTHS. Reporter: DANIELLE BORDESANO IS O’BRIEN’S NIECE. SHE SAID THE FAMILY HAD BEEN CALLING AREA JAILS AND POLICE DEPARTMENTS LOOKING FOR O’BRIEN, BUT NOTHING LED TO HIM. THE LAST SHE KNEW O’BRIEN WAS LIVING IN TENT CITY AND WAS ON THE PATH TO STARTING A NEW LIFE. IT’S REALLY HARD THAT WE LOST A LOVED ONE, SOMEONE THAT WE CARE ABOUT. HE’S ALL THE WAY IN ANOTHER STATE AND LIKE NOBODY KNOWS HIM. SO WE KNOW THAT NOBODY IN PITTSBURGH IS, YOU KNOW, GOING TO CALL THE POLICE OR THE NEWS AND SAY HEY, I KNOW THIS MAN, LIKE I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM. Reporter: DETECTIVES BELIEVE O’BRIEN MAY HAVE BEEN DEAD SINCE JANUARY. AUTOPSY RESULTS WILL TAKE BETWEEN 12 TO 20 WEEKS TO COME BACK. AS THE FAMILY TRIES TO PIECE TOGETHER WHAT HAPPENED FROM 600 MILES AWAY, THEY’RE HOPING FOR SOME TYPE OF CLOSURE. WE WANT EVERYBODY TO KNOW LIKE HE HAD A FAMILY. HE WAS A HUSBAND. HE HAS TWO KIDS. HE COMES FROM A REALLY BIG FAMILY. HE HAS A LOT OF FRIENDS. Reporter: RACHELE MONGIOVI, KDKA NEWS. A GOFUNDME PAGE WAS SET UP TO HELP THE FAMILY WITH FUNERAL EXPENSES. IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION
