ILStateWard @CoachTWard Follow My ride to the game wasn't bad.. #indy2015f4 Unfortunately the ride home wasn't so good... Two members of Illinois State University's athletic department were among the seven people killed when their small plane crashed near the Bloomington airport while returning from the NCAA basketball championship game in Indianapolis, authorities said. They were identified as Aaron Leetch, deputy director of athletics for external operations, and Torrey Ward, associate head coach of the Redbirds men’s basketball team. "The entire campus (is) in mourning," ISU president Larry Dietz said in a statement. Two other victims have been identified: Terry Stralow, a partner in a popular bar in Bloomington-Normal, and Scott Bittner, the owner of a meat-processing company and the owner of the twin-engine Cessna 414 that crashed. No information about the others killed was available, but authorities said everyone on board died in the crash.
