Wellstone Memorial to honor crash victims

EVELETH, Minn. (AP) — A new memorial will honor the late Sen. Paul Wellstone, his wife and daughter, and five others who died in a plane crash in 2002.

The design of the Wellstone Memorial and Historic Site is scheduled to be unveiled Tuesday near the crash site, which is in a swamp two miles south of the Eveleth airport.

Wellstone, his wife Sheila and their daughter, Marcia Markuson, along with three campaign workers and two pilots, were killed on Oct. 25, 2002, just days before the Senate election.
