New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 4, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas HefaldZeitung il Thursday Januar Mot of jet that crashed in Colombia was not drunk FORT WORTH Texas AP Alcohol found in the remains of the American Airlines jet pilot who crashed in Colombia may have been a byproduct of decomposition and does not mean he was drinking an airline official said The airline is awaiting confirma tion of the early Colombian tests on pilot Nicholas Tafuri one of 160 people killed in the Dec 20 crash The Federal Aviation Administra tion notified the Fort Worthbased airline Wednesday about the results Bob Baker the airlines execu tive vice president of operations said further tests were needed to deter mine whether the alcohol in the pilots remains was the result of drinking or the natural chemical processes following death by blunt trauma Obviously we would be shocked if the tests confirm the use of alcohol by one of our pilots during a duty Baker said The amount of alcohol found in the body was not immediately avail able In the United States the maxi mum bloodalcohol content allowed for commercial pilots is 04 percent compared with 10 for drivers in most states Federal regulations require that cockpit crews refrain from alcohol for at least eight hours before flight time These people had a slow horrible agonizing Howard E Shafran attorney The FAA intends to retest the samples in the United States as soon as arrangements with Colombian officials can be made Baker said However Sandra Allen an FAA spokeswoman in Washington said any retesting would be done by Colombian officials with offi cials as observers Allen also said she could not respond to speculation that alcohol could have been a byproduct of decomposition She said the agency had been doing scientific research along those lines but that she did not know the status of it Some reports said the remains of Tafuri 57 a pilot with American Airlines since 1969 were not recov ered until three days after the Boeing 757 crashed into a mountain near Cali Colombia Four people and a dog survived the crash Meanwhile a lawyer seeking 1 billion for the deaths of a couple and injuries to their daughter said Wednesday he will prove that the parents suffered a slow death One lawsuit asks for mil lion for the deaths of Benjamin and Mercedes Ramirez of Kansas City Mo Another seeks million for injuries to Mercedes Liliana Ramirez their 21yearold daugh ter The three were on their way to visit relatives Howard E Shafran the attorney who filed both suits said lawsuits filed across the country would be consolidated in one city for a trial on liability These people did not die of the injuries sustained in the crash They died of hypothermia These people had a slow horrible agonizing he said Also Wednesday the Miami Her ald quoted two veteran American Airlines pilots as saying that an air traffic controller who didnt know the location of the jet misled the crew before the crash The pilots criticized an earlier report by Colom bian officials that blamed pilot error for the disaster But Carlos Rubio head of civil aviation in Cali dismissed the pilots comments as He said an investigation in Washington of the black box flight recorders will determine the cause The National Transportation Safe ty Board is investigating the crash The cause is not expected to be known for months Branch Davidians seek reduced sentences NEW ORLEANS AP Attorneys for six convicted members of the Branch Davidian sect say they believe they have strong arguments to justify reduced prison sentences for their roles in the killing of four federal agents Four Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agents and six followers of David Koresh died during an exchange of gunfire on Feb 28 1993 in Texas The gunfight broke out when scores of agents on two trailers arrived at the cult compound 10 miles east of Waco to arrest Koresh on weapons charges None of the convicted Davidians was expected to be in court today when a threejudge panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals listened to their attor neys arguments I think weve got some excellent Waco attorney Richard Fer guson who represents Brad Branch said earlier If they dont give us some relief weve got some pretty good grounds to go up to the Supreme Appealing their February 1994 con victions are Renos Avraam Branch Jaime Castillo Graeme Craddock Paul Fatta and Kevin Whitecliff Two other convicted sect members Livingstone Fagan and Ruth Riddle did not appeal Avraam Branch Castillo Fagan and Whitecliff are serving 40year sentences years for voluntary manslaughter and 30 years for carrying a weapon while committing a violent crime Craddock is serving 20 years for pos sessing a grenade and Fatta is serving 15 years for possessing a machine gun and aiding and abetting Koresh in pos sessing machine guns Ms Riddle is serving five years on the weapons charge Attorneys will challenge the deci sion of the trial judge District Judge Walter S Smith to reinstate the guilty verdict on the weapons charge Smith originally threw out the verdict because jurors acquitted the defendants on charges of conspiracy to murder We felt it was an improper rein said Houston attorney Rocket Rosen who represents White cliff and Fagan If not reinstated they would not have added 30 years on top of 10 years So were attacking Wurstfest donation Marie Dawson
