The airplane – a Cessna 421 – crashed at 3:21 a.m. CT Saturday near the north Wisconsin city of Phillips. The plane was found near State Highway 111 and U.S. Highway 8 in the town of Harmony. The airplane had left from the Chicago area and was heading to Canada on a fishing trip.

The victims were all adults. No names have been released. However, two of the plane’s passengers were identified in a Facebook post from Tioga Elementary School in Bensenville, Ill.

“We’re dealing with things that people just don’t want to talk about or see,” Price County Sheriff Brian Schmidt told local media.
