Bodies Recovered From Plane Crash

Searchers have recovered the bodies of three Nebraskan residents who died in a plane crash more than two weeks ago near Wyoming’s highest mountain peak.

The bodies were brought out Tuesday afternoon by a team airlifted by helicopter to the crash site located in the Wind River Mountains in west-central Wyoming.

Pilot Rod Lashley, his wife, Char, and family friend Leslie Hofmeister were killed on impact when their Mooney M-20-K aircraft crashed on May 23rd near Gannett Peak.

Inclement weather prevented recovery of bodies until Tuesday. All three bodies were found in the plane. The wreckage of the plane will be removed later.

The plane crashed while the three were heading home from Sun River, Oregon, where the Lashley’s son, University of Arizona golfer Nate Lashley, played in a tournament.
