Lewis Katz, 72, co-owner of The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Daily News and Philly.com, died Saturday night in the crash of a private jet at a Massachusetts airfield.
Katz's death was confirmed by Inquirer editor Bill Marimow, who said he learned the news Sunday morning from close associates.
All seven people were killed aboard the private aircraft that crashed at Hanscom Field and erupted into a fireball, authorities said Sunday.
The Gulfstream IV crashed about 9:40 p.m. Saturday as it was departing for Atlantic City International Airport in New Jersey, said Matthew Brelis, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which operates the air field.

Didn't know much about him, but know he was very benevolent with his wealth. Prayers for the family.

In related news sources at the The Inquirer leaked the information that the planned Hillary expose will be delayed and perhaps cancelled as a result of this terrible "accident".
Just kidding of course but nothing would surprise me with Hillary. Just ask Vince.
Not to be ugly and insensitive about it, but I’d hate to be Hillary’s grand baby. Think of the sympathy votes she would get if something happened to her grand child. Although babies don’t typically commit Arkancide, so that might be a bit suspicious.

Cats have 9 lives but this Katz had only one. May God comfort his family and friends. Oh those small planes.

Don’t mix up the Philadelphia Inquirer with the National Inquirer.

The Gulfstream IV has an excellent safety record.
