Otis Redding

On December 9, 1967, Otis Redding and his backup band, The Bar-Kays, made an appearance in Cleveland, Ohio.
The next afternoon, Redding, his manager, the pilot, and four members of The Bar-Kays were killed when his chartered Beechcraft 18 airplane crashed into Lake Monona in Madison, Wisconsin, on December 10, 1967.
Otis Redding's body was recovered the next day when the lake bed was searched. The cause of the crash was never precisely determined.
