OKLAHOMA CITY, Ok. (WTVO) — The trial of 23-year-old Brian Michael Rini, who is accused of impersonating a long-missing Aurora boy, is on hold after a U.S. District Judge canceled a pre-trial hearing on Monday.
Back in April 2019, Rini allegedly told police in Kentucky he was Timmothy Pitzen, who went missing at age 6 in 2011 after his mother was found dead in a Rockford motel room.
The FBI said Rini admitted to investigators that he wasn’t Pitzen after he was shown DNA results.
Rini faces charges including lying to federal agents and aggravated identity theft.
He is being held in an Oklahoma City prison. Court records do not show any future court dates.
