Posted 12:17 PM 7/2/2012 : Phoenix restaurant CEO dies in chopper crash along with 3 others
CAMP VERDE (AP) - One of the people killed in that helicopter crash in Yavapai County over the weekend was the president and chief executive of the Phoenix-area Arriba Mexican Grill restaurants.
The corporate office confirmed Monday that 70-year-old Raymond Perry was among four people on a private helicopter that crashed into an Arizona river.
The Yavapai County Sheriff's office says the crash likely took place Saturday during a flight from Sedona to Scottsdale. A private pilot found the wreckage Sunday south of Camp Verde, about 86 miles north of Phoenix.
Authorities say Perry owned the helicopter, which was based in Scottsdale. Searchers also recovered the bodies of 68-year-old Karen Stinn of Cave Creek and 63-year-old Mike Dunaway and 64-year-old Linda Dunaway of Glendale.
National Transportation Safety Board investigators were combing through the wreckage Monday to determine what caused the crash.
