AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The family of a longtime Internal Revenue
Service employee says he died this week when a pilot harboring a
grudge against the agency flew his plane into a building in Austin, Texas.

Family spokesman Larry McDonald said Saturday that authorities
have positively identified the remains of 68-year-old Vernon Hunter. He had been missing since Thursday, when software engineer
Andrew Joseph Stack III slammed his plane into the building where Hunter worked as a manager for the IRS

Hunter's son Ken said he presumed the worst after not hearing from his father within an hour of the crash, which set fire to the black-glass building that houses offices where nearly 200 IRS employees work.

Stack was the only other person to die in the crash, which also
injured 13.
