Taylor Swift Named As Next Of Kin By Pilot Who Crashed And Was Killed - Stalker?

A pilot from Canada named Michael Callan who filed a flight plan that said he would be staying in his local area instead flew his plane all the way to Nashville where he crashed in dense fog surrounding the airport. The unmarried pilot listed his next of kin as Taylor Swift but her publicist said that Taylor has never heard of the guy. When I first tweeted about this last night someone suggested that it was probably a different Taylor Swift but there are not that many people named Taylor Swift in the world and at the time no one knew where the man had come from but only that he tried to land in Nashville.

My guess is that he was a big fan/stalker who was coming to Nashville to try and meet Taylor and didn't know how to land at the airport because he was unfamiliar with the area and the fog that can be crazy there and died in the crash. The fog was so thick that night last month when he crashed that the wreckage was on the runway for hours before anyone even noticed it despite the plane catching on fire.

He could have also listed Taylor Swift as the next of kin as a joke, never thinking that anyone would have to use it. Are there other indications he was a stalker?

Or he was a Mark David Chapman type, who wanted his name to be linked to someone famous, even at the price of a life - his own, in this case.

That's a good picture of Taylor. I might stalk her myself.

Wow. Lots of really big assumptions in the post. Strange.

Girl can definitely work it. One thing, she always looks great.

What is it about this poor girl that attracts the crazies?

That would be really weird to have that happen to you. I wonder if it was just a joke. But then, it still doesn't explain him flying to Nashville when he had no reason....

Hey I would be more than happy to have someone I don't know put me down as next of kin and leave me everything, even if it just for a life insurance policy. :)

The guy had a criminal record dating back to the 1990s and most recently for child pornography in 2012. He was even arrested for watching porn on a laptop while riding a city bus.
He rented a plane in Windsor and then was supposed to fly to a small lake island . He did not file a flight plan for Nashville. The suspicion is that he was either doing a drug run or that he was trying to get out of the country because of some other criminal activity. I doubt that he was a Taylor Swift stalker.

I hope they did dental records on the body in the crash. I'm thinking that it might not be the actual pilot.

Amen!

UGH! If he was a stalker this just averted a future possible tragedy, But, I'm more upset about the fact that a plane was able to fly from Canada into US territory and make it to Nashville. Did he fly low enough to evade radar? Was this during the govt furlough and nobody was manning the towers? I would think that Nashville's control tower would have at least noticed the decent on their equipment and questioned it? How many other people were in jeopardy from this guy invading their flight paths?
