Marine aircraft disaster: FBI seeks answers in Mississippi crash that killed at least 16
The FBI reportedly has joined local and state agencies to investigate what caused a U.S. military plane to corkscrew out of the sky and into a Mississippi field on Monday, killing at least 16.
A KC-130, used as a refueling tanker, "experienced a mishap" when it spiraled down about 4 p.m. into a soybean field, about 85 miles north of Jackson, the Marine Corps said. The aircraft's debris scattered in a radius of about 5 miles.
Leflore County Sheriff Ricky Banks told The Associated Press that officials were continuing to look for possible survivors. Banks earlier told the Greenwood Commonwealth 16 people were believed to be on board, but would not confirm that information to The Associated Press.
"We're still searching the area," Banks said. "It's hard to find bodies in the dark."

Was The Mississippi KC 130 Marine Crash Related to the USS Fitzgerald Collision?
Having the FBI on a domestic military plane crash is highly abnormal. Are we on a special alert, as if we had other terrorist events that are ongoing. Has the USS Fitzgerald collision flipped into a terrorism investigation based on developed information?
