    No, sorry Steve. I saw it on the FAA site this AM. I did find this, FWIW:

    We’ll watch for the NTSB report in a week or two.

    Accident occurred Wednesday, November 21, 2012 in Mancelona, MI

    Injuries: 1 Fatal.

    This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed. NTSB investigators either traveled in support of this investigation or conducted a significant amount of investigative work without any travel, and used data obtained from various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

    On October 21, 2012, about 1715 eastern standard time, a Cessna 310B, N5419A, owned by the pilot, was substantially damaged after impacting terrain near Mancelona, Michigan. The certificated airline transport pilot, the sole occupant, was fatally injured. The personal flight was conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91, with no flight plan filed. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed. The flight departed Lakes of the North Airport (4Y4) between 1700 and 1715.

    A witness living near the airport noticed the airplane depart 4Y4, an uncontrolled airport, on Runway 24 between 1700 and 1715. No witnesses observed the accident. During the morning of October 23, 2012, the wreckage was discovered about 1 mile southwest of the airport in a heavily wooded area.
