>> Authorities on Sunday investigating a fatal helicopter crash that killed two Virginia state police officers who were monitoring the violent clashes between white supremacists and counter-protesters Saturday. The cause of the crash? Still unknown as the National Transportation Safety Board scours these woods where the accident occurred looking for answers.
