EATONTON, Ga. (AP) — A small plane crashed in rural Georgia, killing all five on board, including four members of a Florida family who were traveling to a funeral in Indiana. Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills says no one survived the afternoon crash about 100 miles southeast of Atlanta. Sills identified the victims as 67-year-old Larry Ray Pruitt, of Morriston, Florida; Shawn Charles Lamont of Gainesville, Florida; his wife Jody Rae Lamont and their two children, 6-year-old Jayce and 4-year-old Alice. The Federal Aviation Administration said the Piper PA31-T was flying from Williston, Florida, to Newcastle, Indiana.
