The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) discussed the incident during a Monday morning press conference at the Ole Miss Golf Course.
Air safety investigator Ed Malinowski confirmed the plane's route of flight was from the Golden Triangle Regional Airport in Columbus to Oxford, then back to Columbus.
NTSB is working to get more information, including weather conditions at the time of the crash. They will also work with the Oxford airport to determine if any communication was made with Lake before the crash.
The on-site investigation will take a few more days. Malinowski anticipates the preliminary report to be released in a week. However, the final report could take several months or a year to complete.
The NTSB is an independent federal agency charged by Congress with investigating every civil aviation accident in the United States and significant accidents in other modes of transportation.
