Taylor Swift has been linked to a mysterious death of a pilot but denied that she has any connection to it. The country singer was named as the "next of kin" by the pilot whose plane crashed last month at Nashville International Airport.
Michael Callan embarked from the Canadian town of Windsor across an international border without being detected on October 29. He flew the single-engine Cessna off its route and ended up in Nashville, which happens to be Swift's hometown. With transponder off, he circled the airport for hours in attempt to land in the middle of a thick fog without being detected. He then crashed while attempting to land and was only discovered seven hours later.
Investigators were baffled on how Callan missed his destination and worked the puzzle pieces when they found a small clue. Callan listed Swift as his "next of kin" at his flying club. However, Swift, who moved to Nashville at the age of 14, claimed she didn't know the man. Mystery thickens as Callan's family described him as "an aspiring pilot who loved to fly".
Swift's camp said they first heard about the news after they were contacted by authorities following the crash. "The first we heard of this was when the appropriate authorities contacted Taylor's management about the crash. Taylor does not know this person," Paula Erickson, the singer's publicist, told The Tennessean.
