YUMA, Ariz. -

Deputies identified the 49-year-old woman who was killed in a small plane crash on the Barry M. Goldwater Air Force Range on Nov. 24.

Yuma County Sheriff's officials say the victim was Denise Jeanette McCracken of Tucson.

McCracken's single-engine passenger plane went down Nov. 24 on the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge.
 
Border Patrol agents found the civilian single engine passenger plane wreckage four days later west of the Mohawk Mountains, about 10 miles south of Interstate 8.

The Arizona Daily Star says McCracken left from an airport near Tucson, but authorities still aren't sure about her destination.

The National Transport Safety Board is still investigating the cause of the crash.
