Pilot positively ID'd in Oceano plane crash

After DNA testing, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that the pilot killed in a plane crash January 14 off the Oceano coast was David Brian Casey, 63, from Friday Harbor, Wash.

Based on evidence collected during the investigation, sheriff's officials believed Casey and Alan George Gaynor, 52, of Los Angeles, were both killed the crash, although positive identification of Gaynor is still pending.

Late last month, the sheriff's dive team located parts of the plane.

A date for its recovery from the ocean floor has not yet been set.
