We were really hoping this wasn't going to be the case, but it looks like James Horner was the pilot who died in the plane crash early Monday morning.
As we reported earlier, a solo plane registered to Oscar-winning composer James Horner crashed near Santa Barbara at around 9:30a.m., and the pilot was found dead at the scene.
James was the only person on board, and at first, authorities couldn't figure out who was flying the plane because of a brush fire that burnt up most of the remains upon impact.
The 61-year-old's assistant Sylvia Patrycja confirmed that it was the Titanic composer who tragically died in the accident later on in the day.
Our hearts are with James' friends and family at this time.
Rest in peace, James.

A solo plane registered to Oscar-winning composer James Horner crashed near Santa Barbara on Monday morning, and the pilot was found dead at the scene.
While it hasn't been confirmed that the body belonged to the Titanic musician, authorities are unaware of whom else could have been operating the plane.
The pilot was the only person on board when it crashed at around 9:30a.m., and it is unclear what caused the accident.
Authorities are having difficulty determining if it was actually the 61-year-old in the wreckage, because the plane started a brush fire upon impact and there were practically no remains.
Our hearts are with James' family at this time.

Last Sunday, the basketball star lost his friend Jamie Sangouthai to a flesh-eating disease caused by drug use. And now, he unfortunately has to say goodbye to another friend, as the result of drug abuse.
Bobby Heyward passed away on Saturday, and reports are saying a drug overdose is to blame.

The coroner has not confirmed the official cause of death, but we do know the writer and producer was only 30 when he passed away.
Tragically, his last Instagram post (above) was a touching tribute to Jamie's death. He even captioned the sentimental shot:
On Thursday, Jon Stewart dedicated two segments to the tragic hate crime that resulted in the deaths of nine people in Charleston, SC on Wednesday evening. The political satirist had no intention of making this week's shooting spree into a funny moment.
He shared with the audience:
"I have nothing for you."
However, he took his time in front of the camera to appeal to the American public that this incident was more than a massacre but a terrorist attack.

It previously came out, via his photo on Facebook, that the jacket he was wearing in a picture displayed two flags well known for being symbols of white supremacists. A cousin of one of the victims had also said that during the events, Dylann said:
