On February 13th, 2022, a privately owned Pilatus PC-12 leaving Englehard, North Carolina, went down three miles east of Drum Inlet in Cape Lookout National Seashore in about 60 feet of water. There were eight people on board, including four teenagers, all best friends and avid duck hunters, who recently participated in a youth day waterfowl hunt at Lake Mattamuskeet. The crash yielded no survivors and devastated countless families in the surrounding Down East communities.
Those killed in the crash were pilot Ernest “Teen” Rawls, 67, of Greenville; his adult son Jeffrey Rawls, 28, of Greenville who carried a student pilot license; Stephanie Fulcher, 42, of Sea Level; Jonathan “Kole” McInnis, 15, of Sea Level; Douglas “Hunter” Parks, 45, of Sea Level; Noah Styron, 15, of Cedar Island; Michael “Daily” Shepard, 15, of Atlantic; and Jacob “Jake” Taylor, 16, of Atlantic.
Stephanie Fulcher was a member of the Facebook group “Intermittent Fasting for Women of Eastern NC”, a group of nearly 40 women who supported one another in their pursuits of active lifestyles, through healthy diet and fitness. To honor Stephanie, fellow group members came together to remember her through the establishment of a 5K race charity event called the Down East Duck Run. The goal of the 5K is to raise funds to be used in the support of Down East communities, particularly in the promotion of outdoor recreation, something Stephanie held dear. Donations and proceeds from the race will be collected by the 501c3 “Another Perspective” which was originally established in memory of Sarah James Fulcher, Stephanie’s niece.
