Autopsy completed in deadly plane crash

Investigators are waiting for the results of an autopsy, which will give them clues as to what caused a deadly plane crash, 45 kilometres south of Fort McMurray.

The Cessna 185 Float Plane crashed on Friday afternoon in a remote lake south of the city limits, just 45 minutes after taking off from the Fort McMurray Airport.

"We have to wait for their report in terms of the manner and cause of death," says Jon Lee, Western Regional Manager of the Transportation Safety Board. "Right now we're still collecting information with regards to the aircraft maintenance history. Also, the pilot's history too."

Western Regional Manager for the TSB, Jon Lee says the investigation will take longer since the only occupant is dead.

"People look to us for the final word and the best word that is available. Unfortunately, it takes a lot longer to come up through a process of deduction, in ruling out other issues, to try to get to some resemblance of what happened."

Lee says the aircraft is privately registered and the pilot's license was also private.
