MILFORD - A widow in Milford is demanding to know exactly how her husband died six months after he was crushed while inspecting an aircraft.

Mae Charron says her husband, Ray, was killed in the Bahamas in February while inspecting a 1900 Beechcraft when the landing gear somehow failed.

Charron says that her husband was an aviation mechanic who served in the army for more than 10 years. She says he would not put himself in a dangerous situation.

She says local authorities investigated the case, but their final reports were inconclusive.

She is now raising money to pay for an independent investigation, which she hopes will provide the first true account of how her husband died. Her efforts have also won the support of Sen. Richard Blumenthal and his staff of federal investigators.
