SANTA BARBARA (CelebrityAccess) — Oscar-winning composer James Horner apparently died on Monday when his plane crashed in South California.
According to the Associated Press, the crash killed the plane's sole occupant, with Horner thought to be operating the plane when it crashed.
“It was his plane, and if he wasn’t in it, he would’ve called,” Jay Cooper, a lawyer for Mr. Horner, told The Associated Press on Monday.
AP reported that the crash occurred approximately 100 miles north of Los Angeles near the Santa Barbara-Ventura County line.
The 61-year-old Horner won two Oscars and six Grammy Awards for his work on films such as "Titanic." "Braveheart," "Apollo 13," and "Avatar." – Staff Writers
