Brandon Marti: Kissimmee Gateway Airport (KISM), Orlando, Florida

 
Brandon Marti


A 31-year-old former University of Miami linebacker went on a wild crime spree Tuesday morning that included a home burglary, two stolen cars and an attempted theft of a helicopter, according to the Kissimmee Police Department.

According to KPD, authorities began tracking down Brandon Martí after he allegedly crashed his car into a parked car in a Forrest Avenue neighborhood. From there, police said he broke into a nearby home and stole a car which he later crashed into a fence at Kissimmee Gateway Airport.

Before allegedly stealing a pick-up truck at the airport Martí told its driver, “The Mexicans are coming after me!”

The driver tried fighting back, but was dragged as Martí drove the truck to a helicopter stationed there, tinkering with the ignition and a panel of buttons and switches before giving up and driving away while arguing with airport security, according to a report released Wednesday.

Martí was later stunned and arrested by Osceola County deputy sheriffs six miles away from the airport, just outside the Partin Village shopping plaza parking lot, while trying to steal another vehicle, a snippet of aerial video released by the Sheriff’s Office showed.

Martí, 31, is currently in the Osceola County Jail on a $57,500 bond for carjacking, burglary, grand theft, criminal mischief and a litany of traffic violations.

It’s not clear whether he received a mental health evaluation after his arrest. The man who tried to stop Martí was taken to a nearby hospital for his injuries and no other injuries were documented, according to the report.

He’s expected to appear in court Thursday, court records show.

In 2008, Martí signed to play college football for the Hurricanes as a linebacker, but his time there was marred after not playing his debut season and was later suspended by the team before being arrested for domestic violence charges, the Miami Herald reported at the time.

Martí was arrested a few times in the following years for drug charges, including a three-year prison stint stemming from a 2015 case where he was charged with trafficking amphetamines and cocaine possession, among other counts, according to Florida Department of Corrections records.




KISSIMMEE, Florida – A man driving a stolen car crashed through a fence at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport, drove onto the active runway and entered a helicopter and started pushing buttons in an attempt to fly it away, according to the Kissimmee Police Department.

Records show the investigation began with a hit-and-run crash near the intersection of Oak Street and Forrest Avenue shortly before 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Police said a man involved in that crash, 31-year-old Brandon Marti, then broke into an occupied home off Forrest Avenue, took a pair of car keys and drove off in a silver Nissan Altima parked in the driveway.

Marti — a former football player for the University of Miami, records show — then drove that stolen car to Kissimmee Gateway Airport, where he rammed it into a gate, leaving the car inoperable, according to the affidavit.

Police said he then ran to a Ford F-150 and got into an altercation with the truck’s owner as that man tried to prevent Marti from stealing the truck but he was unsuccessful and instead ended up being dragged by the truck.

Marti then drove the truck to a helicopter, got inside, turned the keys in the ignition and pressed buttons in an attempt to start the rotorcraft, according to the report.

Security guards confronted him and after a verbal altercation, Marti drove off in the stolen Ford, authorities said.

Osceola County deputies said they managed to blow out the truck’s tires after a short pursuit.

The truck stopped at the entrance to Partin Village Shopping Plaza and Marti then attempted to carjack another driver, according to the release. Deputies zapped Marti with a Taser and then handcuffed him, the sheriff’s office said.

Kissimmee police said Marti is facing charges of carjacking, burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief in their jurisdiction. Deputies said Marti has been charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, attempted carjacking, fleeing and eluding and resisting arrest.


Brandon Marti

February 12, 2009 - Former Miami Hurricane "linebacker" Brandon Marti got arrested earlier this morning for doing the white guy with dreads thing. Marti was charged with "battery and false imprisonment related to domestic violence" which is lawyer speak for slapping around your lady friend. Or as it is more commonly known, "pulling a Chris Brown".

Marti was relegated to the practice squad as a freshman in the 2008 season and eventually booted off the team altogether after failing to get a respectable hairdo despite repeated warnings from Coach Shannon.

On a personal note, as a fellow white guy who also spent the majority of my freshman year in and out of the clink, with a really bad hairdo, here's to hoping that Marti uses his time at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center to find Jesus. Or a barber. Preferably a barber.

God Speed, Brandon.

On July 1, 2021, about 1920 central daylight time, a Piper Aerostar 600, N10HK, sustained substantial damage when it was involved in an accident near Wichita, Kansas. The commercial pilot sustained serious injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported to air traffic control, about five miles north of the Colonel James Jabara Airport (AAO), Wichita, Kansas, that the two Lycoming IO-540 engines were having issues after lowering the flaps to slow down the airplane for entry into the traffic pattern at AAO. The pilot raised the flaps thinking that the fuel ports may have been uncovered and he then shut down the right engine to preserve the remaining fuel to make it to the airport. The airplane was unable to continue with powered flight with just the left engine operating and the pilot performed a forced landing to a muddy wheat field about 2.5 miles north of AAO. The pilot was able to egress from the airplane without further incident. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage.

The Federal Aviation Administration traveled to the accident site to examine the airplane. A continuity check of the flight and engine controls revealed no abnormalities. The master switch was turned on and the fuel gauges showed a zero indication. There was no evidence of fuel at the accident site or in the airplane. The wreckage is pending recovery for further examination.

WICHITA, Kansas (KSNW) – Rescue crews responded to a small plane down at 53rd and Greenwich just north of Colonel James Jabara Airport on Thursday. The call came in shortly after 7 p.m.

“About 7:13 tonight, a caller to 911 reported a plane crash near 254 and Greenwich. Officers from the police department and sheriff’s deputies arrived and found a Piper PA-60-600 Aerostar just north of 254 in the field that had crashed, one pilot on board,” said Sgt.

On July 1, 2021, about 0755 central daylight time, a Cirrus SR22 airplane, N123RE, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident at Lamoni Municipal Airport (LWD), Lamoni, Iowa. The private pilot and passenger sustained fatal injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

A review of preliminary air traffic control (ATC) information revealed that the airplane departed about 0640 from Millard Airport (MLE), Omaha, Nebraska, and flew a visual approach at 0735 to Creston Municipal Airport (CSQ), Creston, Iowa. At 0736, the airplane departed CSQ, and the pilot received flight following from ATC until about 14 miles northwest of LWD, an uncontrolled airport. The pilot did not communicate any concerns to ATC.

Several witnesses observed the airplane fly an approach to runway 36 at LWD. During the landing, the witnesses reported the airplane bounced, and then the engine noise increased. The airplane subsequently veered left and pitched up, then descended and tumbled on the ground into a bean field to the left of the runway. A post-crash fire ensued, during which the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) rocket launched.

Postaccident examination revealed that the airplane initially contacted the ground about 75 ft left of the runway edge and left wingtip debris was located about 60 ft beyond the initial ground scar. Ground impact marks consistent with propeller strikes were located about 15 ft beyond the left wingtip debris. The airplane came to rest upright on a northwest heading about 60 ft beyond the propeller strike ground scars, with the engine separated from the fuselage. No preimpact anomalies were observed with the flight control system. The airplane was retained for further examination.

His entire family is obviously distraught and heart broken. No parent should ever have to lose their child at any age. Bear was taken by God for a purpose that only he knows. 

Bear is survived by his mother Megan Bull, stepfather Garrett Bull, half stepsister Daisy and three stepbrother's Logan, Nathan and Ian.

Dave was the owner and operator of Dino's Storage, Paladino Development Group, and Landmark Group.

Dave had a zest for life. He was a mentor to many, loved God and his Church, time spent with his family and grandchildren, Nebraska football, Crossfit, reading, and learning. His other passion was Bull Mastiff rescue. He loved them like his children.

Preceded in death by grandparents, Herbert and Genevieve Crilly, and Angeline and Joseph Paladino, Sr. Survived by wife, Lisa; children: Zechariah, Alexander, and Ila Paladino; step-children, Benjamin and Krystal Little; grandchildren: June, Violet, and Oliver Little, and Isabelle Parker all of Omaha; siblings: Kevin Paladino (Cindy) of Lubbock TX, Jason Paladino (Ranelle) of Phoenix AZ, and Luke Paladino (Angie) of Omaha; many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles.

On July 1, 2021, about 1149 mountain daylight time, a Cessna 172 airplane, N2388L, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Missoula, Montana. The pilot and passenger were fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

Recorded Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data provided by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) showed that the airplane departed the Missoula International Airport (MSO), Missoula, Montana, at 1141, and proceeded on a southwesterly heading. The data showed that the airplane initiated a right turn to a westerly heading about 1743:11, at an altitude of 3,850 ft mean sea level (msl). The last recorded ADS-B target was at 1147:19, at an altitude of 5,225 ft msl, 68 knots ground speed, on a heading of 271° magnetic, as shown in figure 1. 



There are no known witnesses. The airplane was the subject of a Federal Aviation Administration Alert Notification (ALNOT) issued the day of the accident, and was located later that evening in mountainous terrain about 9 miles west of MSO.

The airplane came to rest on a south-facing slope within a valley, about 3 miles southwest of the last ADS-B target, at an elevation of 4,664 ft msl, and on a magnetic heading of 040°. The first identified point of impact was a severed tree trunk about 30 ft above ground level. The right wing, left horizontal stabilizer, and left elevator were separated and located within the wreckage debris path. The left wing had folded aft midspan and exhibited a semi-circular indentation in the leading edge and spar, near the outboard tip. The main wreckage was composed of the fuselage, left wing, engine, and empennage.

The airplane was relocated to a secure facility for further examination.

Brian and Carrie Makar Family Funeral & Education

Brian Makar

Carrie Makar


MISSOULA, Montana — A couple from Burien have died in the crash of a single-engine airplane in western Montana, officials said.

The airplane crashed Thursday afternoon about 9 miles (14 kilometers) southwest of the Missoula airport shortly after takeoff, Jennifer Gabris, spokesperson for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), told the Missoulian.

The crash claimed the lives of the pilot, Brian J. Makar, 42, and his wife, Carrie R. Makar, 43, of Burien, Washington, Missoula County Sheriff and Coroner TJ McDermott said.

John La Porta, Brian Makar’s flight instructor, told KIRO 7 that Makar began flying in 2016.

“He was a good pilot. He was very meticulous, very detailed,” La Porta said.

Having spent more than 50 in-flight hours together, La Porta said Makar had become more than a student.

“He started flying here, and then he brought Carrie down, and they were just two peas in a pod. They loved people. They were very fun and gregarious, just always with a smile on their faces,” La Porta said.

Loved ones told KIRO 7 the couple flew regularly and were returning from a flying trip to Glacier National Park when the plane went down.

“It’s just a shock — I guess is the best way to put it,” he continued. “I ask myself what I could have done better, or how could I have done better. … I can’t think of anything I would have done better.”

Ahead of the crash, Carrie Makar had posted regular updates to her Facebook page, most recently posting a photograph with the caption, “Carrie’s spoiled life meter – holding steady at dangerously high.”

“That was Carrie,” said longtime friend, Jessi Green Murphy. “She died with the person she loved, doing what she loved.”

The couple leaves behind four sons, whom Carrie Makar had from a previous marriage. According to those close to the couple, they had recently blended their family. Brian Makar took quickly to being a stepfather.

“It was just too soon. It was too soon for her. It was too soon for her boys. It hit too close to home,” said Green Murphy. “We miss her dearly; we weren’t done with her, and we wish she was still here with us.”

A friend of the family has set up a GoFundMe to assist with funeral services and taking care of their four boys — now and in the future.

According to Federal Aviation Administration records, the airplane involved was a four-seat Cessna 172.

The NTSB is investigating the cause of the crash.

On July 2, 2021, about 0225 central daylight time, a Beech 35-33 airplane, N302Z, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near Roff, Oklahoma. The pilot and passenger were fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

Radar data indicated that the airplane conducted three flights the evening of the accident. The first flight departed the Ada Regional Airport (ADH), Ada, Oklahoma, at 2015; the airplane climbed to 3,000 ft and slowly descended until it arrived at the Ardmore Municipal Airport (ADM), Ardmore, Oklahoma, about 2035. The second flight departed ADM at about 2200 and flew toward ADH, but the airplane
made several circles southwest of the airport and then returned to ADM. It landed about 2253.

A few hours later, at 0211, the airplane departed ADM a second time, en route to ADH. The airplane’s altitude varied between 1,000 and 2,000 ft; at one point the airplane climbed to 3,000 ft before it descended back down. Its ground speed fluctuated between 80 and 160 mph; however, most of the flight was around 100 mph. Shortly before the flight track ended, the airplane track indicated a left turn. The airplane’s ground speed decreased from 93 mph to 74 mph before it increased again. The last radar data point was about 0.20 miles northwest of the accident site; the airplane remained in a left turn at 102 mph.

The airplane impacted trees on a remote ranch about 12 nautical miles southwest of ADH. The airplane was destroyed from impacting the trees and terrain. There were no witnesses to the accident. However, the ranch owner heard a loud noise and went outside. He did not observe anything abnormal but noted the weather conditions were “very foggy and misty, with low visibility.”

Derrick Lee Sutherland, 35, of Ada, Oklahoma passed away Friday, July 2nd, 2021 in Roff, Oklahoma.

Derrick graced this world with his presence on January 30, 1986 in Montrose, Colorado to Rick Sutherland and Julie Cox. Derrick lived in Colorado until the age of 5 and moved to Oklahoma.

Derrick met the love of his life, Chanda Sutherland and married April 10, 2009 at Fossil Creek Ranch in Fitzhugh, Oklahoma. They have three children Savannah, Briar and Brilee.

Derrick was self-employed, creating Sutherland Trucking with his wife by his side. They ventured from gravel hauling into the business it is today and will continue to be, heavy hauling specialist. On most days you would find Derrick behind the wheel and Chanda chasing down High Maintenance and his "Hoes".

Derrick's hero was his dad, Derrick strove to be just like him in so many ways. To know Derrick was an honor and privilege. He lived with passion and loved with his whole heart. Most of all, Derrick loved and cherished his family.

Derrick was a pusher. It was a push to be better than yesterday, a push to learn more, a push to laugh when you are pissed off at the world. He pushed even when people doubted him. Derrick never sat around without dreaming, talking and planning his next adventure. He turned all those dreams, talks and plans into reality for him and his family. His hobbies turned into his life adventures. Boating, Snowmobiling, Side by sides and flying were the things he enjoyed the most with family and friends when he had down time from trucking.

Derrick was preceded in death by his grandparents, Pearl and Oneita Sutherland, Aunt's Shirley Woods and Mikki Curtis and an Uncle, Larry Sutherland and Cousins Trent, Garrett and Tony.

He is survived by his wife Chanda, their three children Savannah, Briar and Brilee, Father Rick Sutherland and wife Stephanie, Stepdad Jeff Curtis, Mother Julie Cox and husband Wallace, Brothers Brandon Sutherland and wife Lindsey, Lane Sutherland and Sean Sutherland, Sister Jaylyn Invison and husband Jeff. Nephews Dax, Cooper and Knox.

Dakota Wayne Abbott
Ada, Oklahoma
January 11, 1991 - July 2, 2021

Dakota was born in Ada, OK on January 11, 1991 to Jeffery and Shaena Abbott. He lived in Ada his entire life, graduating from Byng High School, then going on to ECU on a baseball scholarship, and later attending Murray State.

On June 13, 2015 he married the love of his life, Carley in Fitzhugh, OKlahoma. They had two beautiful boys: Caden Wayne (5yrs) and Dayton Lee (6mo).

Dakota was a self-employed truck driver, owning and operating Abbott Trucking LLC for 5 years. He recently started attending H2O Church in 2021 with his family.

To know Dakota was an honor. Dakota loved and he loved big. He cherished his family above anything. Caden is the true definition of a daddy's boy. He thinks his daddy walked the moon. There weren't many places you would see Dakota that Caden wouldn't be with him. Dakota always told Dayton "I can't wait till you get big enough to be right in the middle of everything with your brother". Dakota had many hobbies. Next to his wife and boys he loved his pride and joy, his semi. There wasn't a semi he didn't stop to admire, none were better than his of course. He loved music and often shared his new music finds. He loved his jeep, riding fourwheelers and baseball. You could say his only poor choice in life was being a Yankees fan. Oh he loved to aggravate. He loved to play jokes on everyone and make us smile. Carley would often ask "can I mow?"  Where he would give his Dakota look and reply "you know I like to mow!" On the weekends you could find him camping and spending time on his new boat with family and friends. Dakota dreamed of starting his own business and accomplished just that! Dakota loved kids and you could always count on hearing "Kota come play with us" at any gatherings. He had a heart of gold and did not meet a stranger. He never hesitated to give spare change or help someone on the side of the road. I think we can all agree the world would be a much better place if we loved like Dakota. He will truly be missed.

Dakota was preceded in death by his grandparents, Fred Abbott, Linda Abbott, and Ly-Van-Duc, and two cousins, Marty Wilson and Tiffany Barton.

He is survived by his wife, Carley Abbott of the home, two sons, Caden and Dayton of the home, father, Jeffrey Abbott and significant other Christine Pangle, mother Shaena Abbott, one sister, Layna Taylor and husband Garrett, two nephews, Gavin Dean and Rhett Taylor, one niece, Kennedi Cavers, grandparents Keith and Kay Byerly, and Mike and Laquita Spencer, aunts and uncles Khini and Floyd Brown, Hollie and Chris Jackson, Mylinda and Lance Bowen, and Cindy and Jerry Newcomb, cousins Kaleb and Tasha, and their kids Kamell, Kase, and Kimber, Christian and Colby Jackson, and Koby and Katelynn Bowen, as well as numerous loved cousins and countless friends.

A family visitation will be held from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM, Wednesday, July 7, 2021 at Estes-Phillips Funeral Home in Ada, Oklahoma.
