(Newser) – Search crews today found the body of a missing 15-month-old girl in the rubble of her San Diego home, the fourth and final victim of a military jet crash in a suburban neighborhood. The toddler and three family members—her mother, grandmother, and 2-month-old sister—were killed in Monday's accident. The family's father said he bore no ill feelings toward the Marine pilot, who managed to parachute to safety. "I know he did everything he could."

A Marine statement: "Initial indications suggest that engine failure may have played a role, though we will not know for certain until an investigation is concluded."
