UPDATE: 2nd body found inside Texas building hit by plane

Posted:

AUSTIN, TX (AP) -- Emergency crews have found a second body in the wreckage where a small plane smashed into an Austin office building.

Austin Fire Department Battalion Chief Palmer Buck said late Thursday that authorities "have now accounted for everybody," but declined to discuss the identities of those found.

Authorities said earlier that the pilot who crashed into the building was presumed dead and that one worker in the building had been missing.

Authorities say A. Joseph Stack III, a software engineer furious with the Internal Revenue Service, launched a suicide attack on the agency by crashing his small plane into the building that contains nearly 200 IRS employees.

The crash set off a raging fire that sent workers running for their lives.
