DNA Tests Revealed Ohio Man Is Not Missing Child Timmothy Pitzen

Accused child impersonator found in Kentucky now in jail

The man who told Kentucky police he is the IL boy who went missing eight years ago has a history of "doing stupid stuff", his brother said this week.

A 23-year-old man who had claimed to be a boy missing since 2011 had been recently released from prison, authorities learned after conducting a DNA test.

The FBI announced the charges Friday ahead of a news conference.

He repeatedly lied to federal authorities about who he was - until he was confronted with the DNA results, Glassman said. A message left with Rini's father for comment was not immediately returned.

Authorities determined that an OH man who claimed to have escaped from kidnappers and identified himself as the missing IL child is not Timmothy Pitzen, CNN reported.

Rini told authorities he was Timmothy Pitzen, a boy who had been missing since 2011, when neighbors in Newport, Kentucky saw him wandering the streets.

An FBI investigation found that Rini had twice portrayed himself as a juvenile sex trafficking victim, and in each case was later identified after being fingerprinted, the affidavit said.

Brian Michael Rini has previously been in trouble with police in Medina, and has a record dating back to 2013, according to the station.

"False reports like this can be painful to the families of missing children and also divert law enforcement resources in order to investigate these untruthful claims", FBI Cincinnati Acting Special Agent In Charge Herb Stapleton added in a statement.

In 2017, Rini was under the care of an OH health center that provides behavioral health treatment services for those experiencing mental health or substance abuse issues, according to a 2017 court motion in Medina County Court.

Brian Rini of Medina, Ohio, was arrested and taken to a Cincinnati jail Thursday after a DNA test proved he was not Timmothy Pitzen - the missing boy - despite making claims that he was in fact the boy.

Rini was released from an OH prison last month after serving time for burglary and vandalism, court records show.

Rini first told police he was being held by two white men with bodybuilder builds, according to one police report.

As of 12:20 p.m. Friday, Rini was in the custody of a U.S. Marshall, Glassman said.

So for a day and a half, relatives waited and hoped for a breakthrough.

"It's devastating. It's like reliving that day all over again", Kara Jacobs, Timmothy's aunt, told CNN reporters.

"We're always anxious about copycats, especially something that has a big national attention like this", said Sgt Bill Rowley of Aurora police.

Often, they find a susceptible audience, both in family members desperate to fill an emotional hole and in a public eager to fit a happy ending on a situation as unfathomable as the disappearance of a child - a sentiment in Timmothy Pitzen's case.

After Rini's account was pronounced a hoax, Timmothy's grandmother Alana Anderson said: "It's been very bad". She had died by an apparent suicide, leaving a note that said Timmothy was safe but would never be found. "It's just been exhausting".
