Two passengers, including an attorney for former "Southern Charm" star Thomas Ravenel, were identified Tuesday as being among three people killed when a small, Charleston-bound passenger plane crashed into the Atlantic Ocean near the Hamptons over the weekend.
Munidat “Raj” Persaud, 41, of Waterbury, Connecticut, was the first of the three to be identified on Sunday.
Richard. P. Terbrusch, 53, of Ridgefield, Connecticut, and Jennifer Landrum, 45, of Augusta were identified by the New York State Police as the remaining two passengers killed when the Piper PA-34 Seneca they were in crashed 3 miles southeast of the Francis S. Gabreski Airport north of Westhampton Beach in Long Island. Terbrusch and Landrum were pulled from the wreckage Sunday.
Terbrusch has represented Ravenel, 56, in the past, who now stands accused of sexually assaulting his former nanny three years ago. Ravenel is a former state treasurer and reality TV star featured on the Bravo-produced "Southern Charm," a Charleston-based show that has cut ties with him.
Authorities said Tuesday that the fuselage of the aircraft remained submerged.
The cause of the crash is not known, and the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating. The plane was headed to the Charleston Executive Airport.
