Narrative:
The light plane crashed under unknown circumstances. Both occupants died in the crash. According to initial information, registration N113FT is false. According to the FAA register, N113FT is used by a Piper PA-46-500TP. Photos of the accident clearly show a different model.
It is therefore to be assumed that the pilots performed an illegal flight. The deceased were Mexican nationals.
Accident photo shows a Continental O-520 piston engine. It means that the crashed aircraft is the Cessna 421.
