David Scott Cormey, 55, and Timothy Shawn Brown, 52, dead in helicopter crash in Wikieup, Arizona
According to a media release, at approximately 12:20 a.m., Mohave County Sheriff's Office was contacted by Yavapai Sheriff's Office for report of an overdue flight that was bound from Riverside, California and scheduled to land in Prescott.
The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) were notified and will continue the investigation to determine the cause of the crash.
Authorities said the two deceased victims onboard the helicopter are believed to be David Scott Cormey, 55, of Prescott Valley and Timothy Shawn Brown, 52, of Glendale.
According to the lawsuit, the helicopter's main rotor blades contacted the airframe "resulting in a sudden and immediate catastrophic in-flight breakup in the middle of the desert."
