Cause of death: plane crash
Authorities said among the seven killed when a private plane crashed near Nashville on Saturday were church diet guru Gwen Lara and her husband Joe Lara.
The Rutherford County Fire Department said in a statement that everyone on the plane is presumed dead. In addition to Laras, the victims have been identified as Jennifer J. Martin, David L. Martin, Jessica Walters, Jonathan Walters and Brandon Hannah of Brentwood, Tennessee.
The agency said the Cessna Citation 501 crashed into Percy Priest Lake east of Nashville on Saturday morning, shortly after leaving the Smyrna airport for Palm Beach, Florida. The National Transportation Safety Board was investigating the cause of the accident.
Gwen Lara founded the Remnant Fellowship Church in Brentwood in 1999 after the success of the Weigh Down Workshop, described by the church as a series of Bible studies that helps people lose weight and stop drinking.
The Cessna C501 crashed into Percy Priest Lake near Smyrna after taking off from a nearby airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.
Rutherford County Fire Capt.Joshua Sanders told a news conference that Rutherford County rescuers were still at the crash site Saturday night and plan to work through the night. He claimed there were no survivors.
“Our efforts have gone from being a rescue effort to a rescue effort … We are no longer looking for live victims at this time,” Sanders said.
Earlier on Saturday, authorities confirmed that at least one person was killed in the crash and that searchers had found a wreck site and identified parts of the plane in the lake. Sanders said the accident occurred entirely on the lake.
Authorities also did not release the registration information for the plane going from Smyrna Rutherford County Airport to Palm Beach International Airport. The Tennessee Highway Patrol told the media that a witness had seen the plane go into the water near a marina. The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA had inspectors on site.
Smyrna is located about 20 miles southeast of Nashville. Percy Priest Lake is a reservoir created by J. Percy Priest Dam. It is a popular place for boating and fishing. Jennifer and David Martin and Jonathan and Jessica Walters were church leaders; Brandon Hannah was Gwen Lara’s son-in-law.
Before the identities of the deceased were revealed, the church partially released a statement saying: “Shamblins, Hannahs and Laras appreciate your concerns, support and prayers.”
