The plane went down about 100 yards off shore into Monterey Bay from an elevation of about 500 feet. An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact identity of the body, but a relative of Denver's ex-wife is reporting that it was Denver. Denver, a licensed pilot, was piloting a single-engine, fiberglass plane alone.
