On march 16, police were dispatched to the report of a possible death at an apartment in the Ballston-Virginia Square neighborhood. When they arrived, officers found John Giandoni dead from apparent gunshot wounds. A four-month investigation revealed information about Giandoni’s relationship to Patel which led to his arrest.
