Surprised no one has brought this up yet, I'm sure most of you have heard by now:

On September 19, 2008, Travis Barker (drummer for punk rock band Blink-182) was injured when the Learjet 60 in which he was a passenger crashed outside of Columbia, South Carolina. The jet was headed for Van Nuys, California. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane was departing the airport when air traffic controllers saw sparks emanating from the plane. It went off the runway, smashed through a fence, crossed a nearby road, slammed into an embankment and caught fire. Barker had performed the night before at an event with former Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell, Gavin DeGraw and DJ AM. Barker was transported to the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia, where he is listed in critical condition. DJ AM was also injured in the crash and was also listed in critical condition.Four others were killed in the crash, three males and one female, with autopsies being performed to identify the bodies. Two of the deceased were crew members, and two were passengers, including Chris Baker, Barker's personal assistant. On September 21, Dr. Fred Mullins, medical director of the Burn Center reported that Barker sustained second and third degree burns on his lower body and torso and was expected to recover.

Assuming that the individuals who died sustained significant thermal burns Identification will probably be accomplished by dental chart comparison, looking for identifying characteristics consistent with an individual that is believed to be one of the decedents involved in the plane crash, i.e prior surgical procedures and if needed collection of DNA. The autopsy will be used to determine if the decedent's death was the result of blunt force trauma, thermal burns, smoke inhalation (high level of carbon monoxide in the post mortem blood) or a combination of all three. A complete toxicology examination in the case of the pilot and co pilot will be critical in determining if there was any impairment to the flight crew operating the aircraft at the time the incident occurred.
This is information from someone who has twenty four years experience as a death investigator and has investigated many aircraft related deaths in the past.
