Identities Released in Oceano Plane Crash

The Coroner’s Unit of the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office is releasing new information regarding a plane crash that occurred on 1-14-14 off the coast of Oceano. Based on DNA testing performed at a Department of Justice lab, the pilot of the plane has been positively identified as David Brian Casey, 63, of Friday Harbor, Washington.

Positive identification of the passenger on board that plane is still pending, although based on information gathered during the investigation, detectives believe that person to be Alan George Gaynor, 52, of Los Angeles. The Sheriff’s Office is continuing to work closely with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the FBI to determine a date, weather permitting, for a recovery operation of the plane from the ocean floor.
