Police now say a Greensburg man allegedly beat his elderly father to death before setting fire to his family home. Walking her dog along Court View Drive in Hempfield Township, Linda Fisher observed, “You think everything’s quiet and everything’s good, but then things like this happen and you just really aren’t prepared for them.” That was Fisher’s first reaction to the news that her neighbor Douglas Novak admitted to beating his 92-year-old father, Frank Novak, to death as well as setting his father’s home on fire to cover the killing up.
