Four Case Western Reserve Univ. students killed in plane crash
Other headlines: Water official steps down after Toledo toxin scare; Ohio AG refused to release video of police shooting

  • Water official steps down after Toledo toxin scare
  • Ohio AG refused to release video of police shooting 
  • Four Case Western Reserve Univ. students killed in plane crash
    The passengers and pilot in last night’s deadly plane crash at the Cuyahoga County airport have been identified as students at Case Western Reserve University.

    Twenty-year-old William Felten of Saginaw, Michigan was flying the four-seat Cessna. His passengers, all members of the Case wrestling team, were 20-year-old Lucas Marcelli of Massillon, and 18-year-olds Abraham Pishevar of Rockville, Maryland, and John Hill of St. Simons, Georgia.

    Vice President of Student Affairs Louis Stark says this is a tragedy of immense proportions.

    "We’re heartbroken for everyone enduring the shocking grief of this news. We are letting students know that we are here and that we’re ready to help them."

    Stark says staff and counselors are meeting with students and the counseling center is offering walk in appointments. 

    The four were killed when the plane crashed in Willoughby Hills shortly after takeoff.

    The National Transportation Safety Board is leading the investigation.


    Water official steps down after Toledo toxin scare
    The city official who was in charge of Toledo's water treatment plant has resigned just three weeks after toxins contaminated the water supply for about 400,000 people.

    Toledo's mayor says he asked for David Leffler's resignation because he no longer had confidence in him.

    Leffler was on vacation during the water emergency in early August, but Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins tells the Blade newspaper that the do-not-drink advisory would have been issued even if Leffler had returned to the city.

    Residents in northwestern Ohio and southeastern Michigan were left without clean tap water for more than two days when toxins produced by algae in Lake Erie got into the city's water supply.


    Ohio AG refused to release video of police shooting 
    Ohio's attorney general plans a news conference today as family members of a man fatally shot by police at a Wal-Mart store push for release of surveillance video.

    Mike DeWine will discuss the case just before a separate news conference by the family's attorney.

    The family wants answers about the shooting of 21-year-old John Crawford III, killed Aug. 5 in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek.

    Police have said Crawford was shot after he didn't drop an air rifle when instructed to do so by Beavercreek police.

    Crawford's family says footage of the shooting that DeWine showed them prove it was unjustified.

    DeWine again declined to release the surveillance video because he says it will compromise the investigation.

    DeWine has said a special grand jury will convene on the case next week.
