Pilot in Calif. craft pile-up that killed 5 carried military badge that wasn’t ‘legitimate’

The commander whose twin-engine craft crashed into a Southern California home on Sunday, murdering him and 4 people on a ground, was not a late Chicago Police Department officer as authorities primarily believed.

Antonio Pastini, 75, of Gardnerville, Nevada, piloted a craft that crashed into a single-family home in a residential territory of Yorba Linda, California.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office on Monday identified Pastini as a former Chicago military officer, formed on a badge and ID they found on him.

On Tuesday, a sheriff’s bureau pronounced it had detected that he was never a Chicago officer and that they “do not trust a certification are legitimate.”

“We recovered from a site what we believed were legitimate certification from Chicago military with a name of a decedent on them,” a orator for a Orange County Sheriff’s bureau told NBC News on Tuesday.

Chicago military reliable to NBC News that Pastini was never a member of a force.
