The pilot of the helicopter that crashed into the guy wires of a radio tower early this afternoon has died. The Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office says the pilot was the only person on board the craft. Officials say the helicopter is owned by a Texas company, but they declined to release immediately the name of the owner. Deputies also say several workers on the ground witnessed the crash, but none of them were injured. The tower is owned by Acadiana Broadcasting Partners. The company says the tower transmits the signal for KYBG, which is known on air as "Big 102.1."
