Those killed in last week’s plane crash in Paulding County have been identified. Paulding County Coroner Dr. Joseph Kuhn says the three people who died are 59 year old Dr. Michael McCarty; 65 year old Wayne Weiss; and Weiss’ wife, 62 year old Roselee Weiss… all from Grand Islan, Nebraska.
The three died when that small plane, registered to Orthopedics Aviation Services, went down Thursday near the intersection of Road 137 & Road 60 in Latty Township.
So far, investigators have learned that McCarty was traveling to New Jersey to visit a daughter, and Weiss’, who were longtime friends of the Doctor, wear riding along while vacationing. Both men were reportedly longtime friends and they both were said to be experienced pilots too.
Investigators with the FAA and NTSB continue to clean up the crash site, in an effort to figure out just what actually went wrong.
