  • Police Small plane crashes off of Long Island beach

A small plane crashed and killed at least two people in New York on Saturday, CBS New York reports.

Mr. Krupinski has built the palatial homes owned by such Hamptons luminaries as Martha Stewart and Billy Joel. The search covered more than 33 hours and saturated a 646 square-mile area before it was called off, the Coast Guard said. "This is always a hard decision, and we can not imagine the pain of those families who have lost their loved ones". Meanwhile authorities have released the names of all four passengers who were on board the plane, including a prominent builder for celebrities' homes.

East Hampton Town police have identified 70-year-old Bernard Krupinski and 70-year-old Bonnie Krupinski as two of those who were on the plane.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash, said spokesman Terry Williams, but agency representatives were not on the scene Sunday.

In a statement to CNN, Stewart said she was devastated by the news. "I can't confirm that was the cause", he said on Saturday afternoon. "His potential was lost in this very unexpected way".

Krupinski had built homes for numerous rich and famous denizens of the Hamptons, including Billy Joel, Christie Brinkley, Martha Stewart and several other notable clients.

"In honor of Ben and Bonnie, with whom we have been fortunate to work as members of their extended family, we continue their commitment to delivering excellence in service to all of you in the community", the statement said.

US Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-New York, described the Krupinskis as a "larger-than-life couple everyone knew, loved, and respected".
