Bryant, his daughter, and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles Sunday morning. The cause of the crash remains unknown and the chopper was flying in very foggy conditions.

Investigators and coroner's personnel are working on the rugged hillside outside Los Angeles where a helicopter carrying Bryant and eight others crashed in foggy conditions considered dangerous enough that local police agencies grounded their choppers.  

Aviation experts said the crash may have been caused by the pilot becoming disoriented in the fog.
