New details are coming out in that plane crash that left four people dead near Monroe last Thursday, but an investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board says it could be a year before a cause of the crash can be determined.

According to airport officials, the plane dropped off radar just before 2:00 p.m. on January 24.

The plane crashed into a marshy area, leaving an eight-foot deep hole in the ground and a one-acre trail of debris.

The crash killed Don Thompson, Dean Hart Sr. and Max Larche - all from northeast Louisiana - along with pilot Mason Maudlin of Little Rock, Arkansas.
