Coroner’s office: Illinois plane crash killed Florida man

A Florida man has been identified as the pilot killed when a small plane crashed in northern Illinois.
    
The Will County Coroner’s Office identified him Friday as 58-year-old Garry T. Bernardo of Lake Worth, Fla.
    
No one else was aboard the plane, and no injuries were reported on the ground.
    
Meanwhile, the National Transportation Safety Board says it might take nearly a year to determine the cause of the crash.
    
The Piper PA30 took off from Florida and was headed to Wisconsin at the time of the crash Thursday in a Plainfield neighborhood, where it torched the side of a home.
    
NTSB spokesman Terry Williams says investigators examined the aircraft at the crash Friday, but the wreckage will be moved to a more secure location for a closer examination.
