H.R. McMaster's father's death at a nursing home is being investigated as suspicious

Authorities in Philadelphia are investigating the suspicious death of former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster's father, H.R. McMaster Sr., several people told 6 ABC News.

The elder McMaster, 84, died April 13 at a nursing home where he was recuperating from a stroke. 6 ABC News reports that investigators are looking into allegations that McMaster fell and hit his head, then was put in a chair and died without receiving proper care. McMaster's family was also reportedly told by some staff members at the facility that records related to his death had been falsified.

The nursing home, Cathedral Village, told 6 ABC News on Wednesday that on the day McMaster died, they notified the Department of Health and started an investigation into the allegations. The Pennsylvania attorney general's office called the incident "tragic," and said its investigation is in the "very early stages."
