From The Dalles Chronicle:

“The victim of a stabbing, Josh Davitt, 23, of The Dalles, died Tuesday evening — three days after he was taken off life support at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland.

“Josh Davitt was a member of our thrift store staff, the director of The Loft and a good soldier (church member) of the Salvation Army in The Dalles,” said Major Tammy Ray, corps officer in The Dalles. “Our love and prayers go out to Josh’s family and all who loved him.”

Wasco County District Attorney Eric Nisley has accused Scott Olenick, 26, of stabbing Davitt, who was his roommate, following a verbal dispute April 29 that turned into a physical altercation. The 26-year-old man has been lodged in the Northern Oregon Regional Correctional Facilities on the charge of first-degree assault and cannot be released without posting a $25,000 cash bail. “It’s very tragic and I feel horrible for the family,” Nisley said after hearing the news.
