Narrative:
A Rockwell Aero Commnder 690C Jetprop 840 crashed under unknown circumstances. It was probably used for transporting drugs.

The registration of the aircraft, "XB-EJS", was likely falsified as a September 2019 photo of the original XB-EJS shows a different colour scheme. Original registration seems to be XA-TOR.
