Officials Identify Victims of Texas Helicopter Crash

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 16-Oct-2012

The victims, killed in a Texas helicopter accident were identified by police this week, after officials located the aircraft that had been missing in Central Texas.

Authorities identified the pilot of the helicopter as 35-year-old Seguin resident, Chester Monroe, who officials believe had only been licensed to fly or a few months prior to the helicopter crash in Central Texas. The crash occurred in Kendall County and two others were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. They were traveling from Midland, rescuers believe.

Officials identified the other two people as 29-year-old Kaci Fairchild and 26-year-old Rusty Aaron.

Investigations have revealed that the 2008 helicopter was registered to Eric Spitzer, LLC, a company out of California.

According to authorities, the helicopter had stopped in Fredericksburg to refuel the aircraft. The helicopter crashed shortly after leaving for Seguin after refueling.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are both investigating the Texas helicopter crash.
