After the Sunday crash, the body of the pilot was found on Monday, but he was not publicly unidentified until Wednesday.

The body of 91-year-old Jean Danylko was found in the wreckage of her home. The search for the pilot was called off on Sunday due to structural stability.

The FAA said only the pilot was on board the R44 helicopter when it crashed.
