Madeline Island plane crash victims
ASHLAND, Wis. (AP) – The Ashland County sheriff says the two men killed in a single-engine plane crash on Madeline Island are related and from the La Crosse area. Sheriff Mick Brennan says autopsies are being done Monday after the victims’ bodies were recovered from the crash wreckage on Sunday. The Piper Comanche went down south of a runway on the island in northwestern Wisconsin Saturday evening and became engulfed in flames. Brennan says the two men were the only occupants. They have not been identified pending completion of the autopsies. A witness told sheriff’s investigators the pilot was trying to land the plane, then aborted the landing and turned to make a second approach before it went down. The Federal Aviation Administration’s registry lists a La Crosse company as the owner of the plane.
