TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Investigators have examined a heater as they search for the cause of a plane crash in Kansas that killed four people with ties to Oklahoma’s Oral Roberts University. The plane was enroute from Tulsa to a Christian youth rally in Council Bluffs.  The heater was found in the wreckage of the eight-passenger plane that crashed May 11, 2012, near Chanute, Kan.  The National Transportation Safety Board issued a factual report this week about the crash that killed the plane’s pilot and three others.
 
One woman survived. The Tulsa World reports that she informed investigators that the heater produced a “terrible smell.”
