AKRON, OH (WOIO) - The Summit County Medical Examiner's Office has positively identified the two remaining victims from the deadly Akron plane crash on Nov. 10.
The pilot has been identified as 40-year-old Oscar Chavez, of North Bay Village, FL. The co-pilot has been identified as 50-year-old Renato Marchese, of Boynton Beach, FL.
Last week, the medical examiner identified the seven other victims:
- Gary Shapiro, 35, of Boca Raton, FL
- Diana Suriel, 32, of Wellington, FL
- Thomas Virgin, 31, of Boca Raton, FL
- Jared Weiner, 35, of Boca Raton, FL
- Ori Rom, 32, of Delray Beach, FL
- Nick Weaver, 34, of Boca Raton, FL
- Diane Smoot, 50, of Delray Beach, FL
The victims worked at Pebb Enterprises, a real estate company in Florida. Pebb was scouting locations for shopping malls in Ohio when the plane went down about two miles from the airport.
According to the FAA, the 1979 Hawker H25 twin-engine business jet left Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport and was on approach to Akron Fulton International Airport just before 3 p.m. The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the plane clipped a telephone wire, hit an apartment building on Mogadore Road, then crashed into an embankment behind that building. No one was in the apartment building at the time of the crash.
