Three men from longtime South Dakota ranching families and a former South Dakota State University (SDSU) football star died in a plane crash that was discovered April 28.

Nick Reimann, Logan Rau and Brent Beitelspacher were returning from a Texas cattle sale in a plane piloted by D.J. Fischer when the crash occurred. Reimann, 33, Rau, 25, and Beitelspacher, 37, come from prominent ranching families in north central South Dakota.
