What caused a fatal plane crash in the Florida Everglades in Palm Beach County over the weekend is under investigation.
The private plane took off Saturday from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport and was heading to the Leesburg International Airport in Central Florida when it crashed, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office said the site where the plane went down, about 20 miles west of Boynton Beach, was only reachable by airboat.
While officials have not released the name of the man who died, the victim has been identified as Paul Soule, the only person onboard the plane.
The PBSO, along with the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.
