Mr. Rodemer said he hadn’t seen Hedglin since their court date that day.

A police officer making rounds at the airport early Tuesday found a motorcycle with the engine running outside the perimeter fence, Mr. Mortenson said. As he searched for the owner, the officer came upon the idling plane and called SkyWest.

The airline sent an employee to turn off the engine. Inside, Hedglin was found dead with a gunshot wound to his head.
