Illinois town pays respects to plane crash victims

Hundreds of mourners gathered in a southern Illinois school gymnasium to remember members of a Nashville family killed in a Kentucky plane crash.
    
A line stretched through the halls of Nashville Grade School on Thursday as mourners arrived for the visitation of 9-year-old Piper Gutzler and her parents, Marty and Kim Gutzler.
    
The Gutzlers were killed along with 14-year-old relative Sierra Wilder when the small plane piloted by Marty Gutzler crashed on Jan. 2. The family was returning from a Florida vacation.
    
The elder Gutzlers’ other daughter, Sailor, survived and managed to trek a mile to a house where a man summoned authorities for her.
    
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
