6:36 pm
file that it does not appear to actually be a work-related accident. reporter: how did jessica decide that? according to a report, she only talked to one person on the phone about steve's death. it was a hospital nurse who told her steve had a prior heart attack, almost two decades ago. but can provide in more recent records, just one year before, steve's cardiologist said his heart function was rocksolid. there's is really no reason for concern. >> he had heart issues in the past, the sheriff's decided to call off all investigation. >> he was not working during the time? >> he was. but the injury was not in relation to an accident he suffered from work. it appears his death was caused by natural causes. reporter: the report said she sent event to the hospital to pick up steve's body and bring him to the morgue.

6:38 pm
before the autopsy was done. reporter: steve's body was allowed to go on that journey before it came back here to the morgue for the official autopsy. in part two of this story, that had fatal consequences for the investigation. it does not add up. >> it doesn't. reporter: evidence of injuries to steve that never made it in to his autopsy. >> the autopsy starts at the scene. reporter: you details about the damage to steve's trunk. >> something happened. no one is telling me. reporter: details investigators may not have known. >> someone hit it with a tree. reporter: but pg&e did. >> maybe it did get damaged up here. >> who is policing them? dan: investigative reporter brendan, he says it is only part one of the story, we will have

6:41 pm
fever, rash, itching, or flushing. these are not all the possible side effects. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions including immune system problems, or if you've had an organ transplant, had or plan to have a stem cell transplant or have had radiation to your chest area or a nervous system condition. it feels good to be here for them. living longer is possible. it's tru. keytruda from merck. ask your doctor about keytruda.
