Man Who Found Crashed Plane, Drowns At Same Location 3 Weeks Later

drowningThe body of 64-year-old Richard E. Lane was discovered Friday afternoon in a creek on the Mulberry farm where a small single-engine plane had crashed in early May.
Law enforcement says that the man apparently fell into a creek on the property and drowned.
In an odd twist to this story, Lane was the person who discovered the crashed airplane on May 4 on the same property.
The creek is located along Steelman Road just off Highway 50 near the Moore County/Lincoln County line.
The body of Forty-six-year-old Linda Bauman of Belvidere was found by Lane when she was killed in the plane crash on May 4.
