SOUTH BEND - Tuesday marked another crucial step into the investigation of a plane crash that killed two people and sent three others to the hospital. After crews strapped several pieces of that private jet to a crane that hoisted them onto a flat bed truck, a police escort led the truck from the scene on North Iowa Street in South Bend to a hangar at South Bend Regional Airport. Investigators will spend the next several days and weeks examining the plane inside that hangar to try and figure out what caused it to crash.

Every year thousands of animals come through the doors of animal shelters – and, because of the out-of-control pet population, many end up with a death sentence. But there is a political debate going on in Michigan and around the country concerning the most humane way to euthanize – through lethal injection or the gas chamber. Karen King is on a mission. The Berrien County animal activist has been on the front lines working to get legislation passed to ban animal euthanasia by gas. "It is a shock, I mean, it is the secret in our backyard," King said.

SOUTH BEND - Rachael Savannah Woods was the baby of the family, the one who lit up everyone's day. She was adored by her parents and siblings, who still can't believe she has been taken from them. The 20-year-old Woods died Sept. 13 at an Indianapolis hospital from injuries allegedly inflicted by Nathan Huey-Dingle, 30, of Chicago. He is charged with murder and several other felonies. Woods' death has left the family torn and broken-hearted. The parents, Floyd and Sheila Woods, couldn't bring themselves to talk about their beloved daughter, but two of the victim's nine siblings, Recie Warfield and Josh Flinn, both of South Bend, shared memories of their sister.

Take it from a guy who's been there - and then some. It's way too early to count Bob Diaco out. Legendary Iowa football coach Hayden Fry knows Diaco well. Fry was there when Diaco became his first Hawkeye ever to show up in a suit and tie for his first day on campus. He was there when, as a senior linebacker, Diaco was told his shoulder was injured too badly for him to play. Diaco played anyway, leading with his other shoulder. He was there to watch Diaco analyze and solve any defensive problem.

SOUTH BEND - An old costume collection has a new home that is actually in an old building. When South Bend's Marquette Elementary moved into their new building, the old building was boarded up and left vacant. The South Bend School Corporation had plans to demolish it but there were opponents who wanted it on the National Historic Registry. Now, those demo plans are on hold, but the building is not empty. It is now the home of the Casaday Costume Collection.
