Narrative:
A twin-engine plane was found on fire early on Friday (4) in a rural area between the cities of Valparaíso (SP) and Lavinia (SP). The occupants of the aircraft were not found. According to information from police, employees of a plant, which is near the scene, saw the flames in a sugarcane plantation.
Authorities believe the twin-engine is involved in criminal activity because no one reported the accident or officially claimed ownership of the equipment. The civil police will investigate whether the plane was used to transport drugs.
