Bodies Recovered from Idaho Plane Crash

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The bodies of all five victims of a December plane crash have been recovered from the mountains of central Idaho.

Valley County Coroner Nathan Hess tells the Idaho Statesman that the last of the victims was recovered yesterday afternoon. The wreckage from the Dec. 1 crash was located Friday by Dellon Smith, the brother of 51-year-old pilot and software executive Dale Smith of San Jose, Calif.

Crews worked Tuesday and yesterday to recover the bodies. Sheriff’s Lt. Dan Smith says the plane hit about eight trees, broke apart and caught fire. Officials say Dale Smith was flying from Oregon to Montana with his son Daniel Smith and Daniel’s wife, Sheree, of Butte, Mont.; along with Dale Smith’s daughter Amber Smith and her fiance, Jonathan Norton. Amber Smith and Norton were students at BYU-Idaho.
