The single-engine aircraft went down in a corn field near the city of Sandwich, said FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory. The DeKalb County coroner's office identified the dead as Randall Hougham, 53, who was flying the plane, and passenger Lauren Hamilton, 22, both of Sandwich. They were pronounced dead at the scene. The coroner's office said the crash happened just north of the Sandwich Airport.
