Oregon State Police (OSP) Lieutenant David MacManiman confirmed that with the help of St. Paul, Minnesota police, Glendive, Montana local law enforcement and many others, next of kin for DAVID SCVOIL PINOTTI, age 49, were located and notified of his death. PINOTTI died May 29, 2010 in eastern Oregon when he was struck by a commercial truck as he walked in an eastbound lane of Interstate 84 east of Baker City. After exhausting all available leads to notify next of kin over a three week period since the fatal crash, OSP released his name and photograph Wednesday in Oregon, Montana and Minnesota.
"I personally appreciate the assistance of the law enforcement agencies and all the people, including three geneologists, who called in with information to help us find David Pinotti's next of kin. They were all very helpful," said MacManiman.
