After a fatal plane crash at Nashville International Airport, it was discovered that the dead pilot, Michael Callan, listed Taylor Swift as his next of kin. According to the NY Daily News:
The mystery surrounding the crash of a small plane at Nashville Airport three weeks ago -- a single-engine Cessna that strayed hundreds of miles from its listed flight -- deepened with the revelation that the pilot killed in the fiery wreckage left Taylor Swift as his next of kin....
Apparently, Callan had a long rap sheet, which included convictions for armed robberies and child pornography charges.
Swift's publicist confirms that the star does not know Michael Callan.
