PRINEVILLE, OR -- Nearly eight months after a fiery deadly crash in Crook County, authorities say they have finally identified the victim. The accident occurred the morning of February 27 on George Millican Road, 20 miles south of Prineville. 

 

When State Troopers arrived, they found a 1995 Cadillac fully engulfed in flames, with fire spreading to nearby brush. After the fire was extinguished, emergency crews discovered a person deceased inside the car. 
 
Through hair samples and other evidence, the State Police Forensic Lab used DNA to identify 55-year-old Mark Tsatsa of Bend.  Speed is believed to be a contributing factor in the crash.
