Mysterious Disappearance In The Sky Takes A Shocking Turn

An unidentified pilot from North Carolina passed away on Friday afternoon. The small, 10-person plane had Charles Hew Crooks, 23, as one of its two passengers on Friday, but it only managed to land with one person in Wake County, North Carolina.

According to the authorities, Crooks either leaped from the aircraft or fell from it while it was still in the air.

The report states that the remaining co-pilot, who reported to air traffic control that the plane had lost its right wheel and was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, safely made an emergency landing at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Numerous police officers combed the neighborhood and the plane's flight path while dozens of emergency personnel were stationed at Raleigh-Durham International Airport to look for Crooks' body.

Around 7 p.m. that night, his body was discovered in the woods outside a Fuquay-Varina residential area. It was roughly 30 miles from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport, according to authorities. The residents of the home informed law enforcement officers who were canvassing the area after the body fell about 30 to 40 feet from their residence, according to police.

Crooks' body plummeted at least 3,500 feet, according to Fuquay-Varina Police Chief Brandon Medina, during a press conference that evening. He stated that although it was not immediately evident if the pilot had died before falling, officials are still looking into the situation.

Chief Medina only said that the circumstance was "unique," declining to specify whether the investigation is being considered as a criminal investigation.

After receiving treatment for minor wounds, the co-pilot who was still alive was discharged from the hospital.
