Boaters Find Body of Final Victim of Miami Plane Crash

Boaters have discovered the body of the final victim of Monday's plane crash off the coast of Miami, Florida.

The body of Sergio Danguillecourt, an heir to the Bacardi rum fortune was found Friday in the Atlantic Ocean, far from the crash site. The remains of the other 19 victims were recovered early in the week.

Also Friday, investigators wrapped up their search for clues as to why the plane went down Monday, shortly after its takeoff from Miami, on its way to the Bahamas. The full investigation is expect to take months. But experts say they found evidence of stress fractures in the plane's right wing, which broke off just before the crash.

The aircraft's operator, Chalk's Ocean Airways, has voluntarily grounded its fleet of four remaining aircraft.
