Comedian John Pinette dies in Pittsburgh, Pa., hotel

Comedian John Pinette was found dead in a Pittsburgh, Pa., hotel room, authorities say. He was 50.

A medical examiner’s office supervisor said he had been suffering liver and heart disease and that his death was due to natural causes.

The Boston native appeared in films including “Duets,” “Dear God,” “The Punisher” and “Junior.” Pinette also guest-starred on the series finale of “Seinfeld,” playing the role of a carjacking victim, whose predicament leads to the show’s main characters to be charged with violating the “good Samaritan” law.
