Narrative:
The plane was found burnt by law enforcement officers and had likely been used for transporting drugs.

In news reports the aircraft was identified as a Beech King Air. However, photos from the scene show the burnt out wreck of a twin with tip tanks. Engines and tip tanks suggest it was a Cessna twin (e.g. 310, 411, 414).
