Ripped to pieces, broken windshields and debris left for investigators to sort through. Early Saturday morning, this 15-passenger plane crashed southwest of highway 43 near Karnack, Texas.
"It's hard to tell because of the way the wreckage is or what type of plane it was," say Hayward. "Or what he could have been carrying it's just pretty hard to tell."
Investigators say it appears Friday night's strong storms was too much for the plane to handle.
"It's just the cockpit of the airplane and all you can see is this, there's no wings," added Trooper Jim Hargett. "Anything like that it's all scattered in the area."
Hargett says the pilot was traveling from Dekalb, Illinois to Brownsville, Texas.
"His body was lying down across towards the instrument panel and his legs were back across towards the right side of the plane,' said Hargett.
Several are questioning if the plane was even equipped for the weather that came through.
"Certain aircraft don't fly in certain weather because they are not certified meaning you can't go IFR, individual flight rule," said Hargett.
Meanwhile as family of the victim is contacted in Mexico, investigators wait for the Federal Aviation Administration to arrive on Sunday.
"It's a bad deal for the peoples loved one," concluded Monty Henley.
