A Nebraska man is among the 49 killed in a plane crash in Laos.
Wapelhorst said Thursday that he has spoken to most of Babcock's immediate family. He says Babcock's parents and a brother were flying to Laos on Thursday as officials in that country work to recover the bodies of those killed.
Wapelhorst says Babcock moved from Nebraska to Laos with his family as a young boy, but lived in Lincoln and attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln from 2007 until 2010 before moving back to Laos.
