The coroner was called to the crash scene after deputies said it appeared the pilot appeared to be deceased.

Witnesses said they saw the plane take off and after a few minutes heard what they believed to be the engine stall. The wings of the plane dipped and the plane began to spiral down.

What led up to the crash is being investigated. Both the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash.
