Six people died after a Cessna 421 airplane crashed Saturday near Hwy. 111 in northern Wisconsin, according to the Price County Sheriff’s Department.
Killed were Kevin King, 70, of Bensenville. Ill.; James Francis, 63, of Norco, Calif; Kyle Demauro, 21, of Bensenville, Ill; Thomas Demauro, 56, of Bensenville, Ill; Charles Tomlitz, 69, of Addison, Ill.; and George Tomlitz, 45, of Brookfield, Ill., according to a Price County Sheriff’s Department statement.
The plane was en route from Illinois to Canada for a fishing trip when the aircraft went down at about 1:53 a.m., police said. The debris field spreads over a quarter mile, according to a National Transportation Safety Bureau spokesman.
None of the victims names have yet been released. There were no survivors.
NTSB officials said the pilot of the aircraft was up-to-date on all certifications and was allowed to fly.
The crash shut down a portion of Hwy. 111 for most of Saturday.
The FAA and NTSB, along with the Price County Sheriff’s Department and coroner will continue the investigation.
My love, my life was Jim Francs. Oh how I love him so.
We are all so terribly sorry, Polly.
