The pilot, Edward Zezlina, 67, and passenger Linda O'Brien, 71, were killed when the plane crashed in a wooded area of Coshocton on Monday morning. He says they believe Bray had departed from Freedom Springs Ranch Airport near Pipe Creek, TX. The plane crashed in a remote area only accessible by foot or ATV, Coshocton County sheriff's office told WBNS.

First responders were called out to private property near Saddle Hollow Road around 9 p.m. Sunday, April 16. Investigators said the aircraft caught on fire when it went down, making it hard to identify the type of plane. A resident located the mangled remains of the aircraft just before 10 a.m. Monday in the woods, officials said.
