DAGSBORO, Del. (AP) -A real estate developer with a small stake in the Washington Capitals and a pilot were killed when their helicopter crashed in a soybean field shortly after taking off in fog, authorities said.

Joshua Freeman, 42, was on his way from a holiday party at a golf club his company owned to another event in Washington when the 1998 Bell 407 helicopter went down Thursday night in the southern Delaware field, state police said.

It was not immediately clear whether the fog played a role in the crash about a quarter mile from where the chopper took off. Federal and state investigators were on the scene.

The helicopter was registered to Full Service LLC, of Washington. Authorities identified the pilot as Danielle Howell, 30, of Richmond, Va.

Freeman was president and chief executive officer of Carl M. Freeman Associates, a development company founded by his father. The younger Freeman owned a small share of the National Hockey League's Capitals through a company called Lincoln Holdings LLC.

That is sad news.

RIP to the both of them. These bizarre airplane crashes seem to be happening quite a lot these days. :(
