The Coroner's office is reporting that four bodies have been found in the plane that crashed in Santa Monica on Sunday evening.
"We recovered four sets of human remains,'' said coroner's Chief Craig Harvey. Harvey said officials have been notified that four people were aboard the airplane, and efforts were being made to positively identify those who died.
No further details were forthcoming, however the Santa Monica-based company Morley Builders issued a statement Monday saying they believed its CEO Mark Benjamin and his son, Luke, were aboard the plane.
The National Transportation Safety Board worked through the night with cranes to remove the hangar from the trapped plane.
KABC reports that NTSB investigators indicate there is a voice recorder on the plane but it has not yet been recovered.
