Murder Suspect Tries to Steal Plane

A bizarre string of crimes came to a tragic end Tuesday when an airline pilot on the run after allegedly killing his ex-girlfriend attempted to steal a plane, but killed himself before it took flight. Brian Hedglin, a pilot for SkyWest Airlines, was fleeing police after allegedly stabbing his former girlfriend, Christina Cornejo, last Friday in Colorado Springs. Hedglin reportedly broke into the St. George Municipal Airport in Utah, attempted to steal a jetliner, but shot himself before the plane was airborne. The aircraft, however, struck the airport terminal and several parked vehicles. Police aren’t sure why the pilot fled to the Utah airport: “The person who has those answers, unfortunately, is dead.”
