January 3, 2017

VIENNA, Ill. (AP) – Authorities in southern Illinois have identified the four people who died after a single-engine plane crashed in a wooded area on New Year’s Eve.

Johnson County Coroner David Rockwell says 34-year-old Curt Terpstra, 37-year-old Krista Green, 35-year-old Jordan Linder and his 26-year-old sister, Jasmine Linder, died in Saturday night’s crash. All four were from Iowa. Terpstra, of Pella, Iowa, is identified as the registered owner of the plane.

The Federal Aviation Administration has said the Piper PA28 aircraft went down in unknown circumstances. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board continued their investigation of the crash site on Monday. A search is still underway for the log books that might give some indication of what happened.

The New Years Eve flight was headed from Iowa to Nashville when the crash occurred late Saturday afternoon.
