UPDATE – 3/19/22 – 10:20 AM

PBSO tells us that the crash site was secured overnight by FWC and PBSO as the aircraft is in a very difficult area to get to without specialized equipment.

PBCFR is responding today with a Hazmat team to recover the deceased. The scene will be turned over to NTSB after PBSO detectives and crime scene investigators finish their investigation.
