A Lo­rain County cou­ple was killed on Mon­day in a plane crash in ru­ral Coshoc­ton County.

Pilot Ed­ward Ze­zlina, 67, and pas­sen­ger Linda O’Brien, 71, of Grafton, were en route from Elyria to DeLand, Florida, when their air­craft went down a few miles from Bliss­field, north­east of War­saw. The Zanesville Post of the State High­way Pa­trol re­leased the vic­tims’ names Mon­day evening, not­ing that the cause of the crash had not been deter­mined.

Coshoc­ton County Sher­iff Tim­o­thy Rogers said his of­fice was con­tacted Mon­day morn­ing af­ter the sin­gleengine plane dropped off of radar. A prop­erty owner lo­cated the wreck­age of the 1971 Beechcraft Bo­nanza in a wooded area off County Road 401 just be­fore 10 a.m.

The High­way Pa­trol, the FAA and the county coro­ner’s of­fice were at the scene Mon­day morn­ing, Rogers said.

The Na­tional Trans­porta­tion Safety Board is head­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the crash.
