Federal investigators have recovered a piece of the engine of a small plane that crashed and killed a member of the Rockefeller family in suburban New York.
Richard Rockefeller, the 65-year-old great-grandson of Standard Oil co-founder John D Rockefeller, was killed in the crash on Friday.
The Piper Meridian single-engine turboprop plane went down shortly after takeoff from Westchester County Airport. It narrowly missed a house.
According to the Journal News, the plane has been taken to an undisclosed location and will be transferred to a storage facility.
The National Transportation Safety Board told the Journal that a preliminary report was expected in seven to 10 days.
