From Yahoo:

No confirmation that Lidle was on the plane, but reports say that his passport was found on the sidewalk.

UPDATE by Chad: Here’s the ESPN story. Very sad.

UPDATE 2 by Chad: Some Reds made a statement on Lidle’s passing.

    Very, very sorry to hear about this. I really hope more amateur pilots think twice about flying in this kind of weather, at night, around Manhattan.

    Heartbreaking.

    Ya know, Lidle wasn’t a very good player for the Reds, but he was a Red, and that’s enough for me. Redleg Nation’s thoughts are with his family.
