Conn. Plane Crash Victims Identified

CANTON, Conn. (AP) — A husband and wife from Florida have been killed in a small plane crash in a wooded area in Connecticut.

The couple was found dead inside the single-engine aircraft in Canton on Monday night.

Canton police told the Hartford Courant the victims were 73-year-old Donald Derocher and 74-year-old Josephine Derocher. Police Chief Christopher Arciero said they were living in Live Oak, Fla., but were flying to Connecticut to visit family.

A state police helicopter located the wreck on a ridge after the Federal Aviation Administration notified Simsbury Airport that the plane, which was tracked by Bradley International Airport, had dropped from the radar.

The FAA said the plane was registered to Donald Derocher.
