  • 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 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 Friday (http://bit.ly/11CNF3n ) that she informed investigators that the heater produced a "terrible smell."
     
    The plane was flying from Tulsa and was en route to a Christian youth rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, when it crashed last year.
     
    The NTSB has not yet issued a probable cause report about the crash.
