SMYRNA, Tenn. (WTVF) — All seven victims of the Percy Priest Lake plane crash from over the weekend have been identified.
The Rutherford County Medical Examiner’s Office released the update Thursday, saying the victims were identified as William J. Lara, Gwen S. Lara, Jennifer J. Martin, David L. Martin, Jessica Walters, Jonathan Walters, and Brandon Hannah.
On Monday, a barge and crane were put in the water to load up more of the wreckage. Local authorities said a number of items have surfaced, and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has taken over the investigation.
Rutherford County officials said crews were able to locate both of the engines and a significant portion of the jet’s fuselage.
The NTSB said it should release its initial report in the next two weeks. However, the full crash investigation could take up to two years.
