COOK COUNTY, Ga. (WALB) - Investigators in Cook County are still looking for answers after the body of 65-year-old Larry Bothof who was pulled from the wreckage of a small civilian plane earlier this week.  

We are told from representatives of the National Transportation Safety Board, or the NTSB, are still in the area, gathering parts, and continuing their investigation.

They are working alongside the Federal Aviation Administration to find out what exactly happened Tuesday that led to this crash.

We are also told that these agencies are requiring an in-depth examination from the Cook County coroner, about Buthof's death. 

The coroner shared that he does not have any information for release at this time.
