Jose Wejebe Dies in Single-Engine Plane Crash

The Collier County Sheriff's Office has reported that a small plane owned by Jose Wejebe crashed into a field around 5 p.m. Friday, April 6, shortly after taking off from an Everglades City, Florida, airpark.


The medical examiner still has to officially confirm the identity of the single body recovered from the wreckage, but investigators believe it was Wejebe.

The Cuban-born angler was the host of "Spanish Fly," a saltwater fishing show on the Outdoor Channel and formerly ESPN.
