The newspaper report says a homosexual affair may have lead to the crash in the Colorado Rockies.

Today's "Citizen" newspaper in Tucson, Arizona, says military investigators believe Captain Craig Button committed suicide.
The report quotes sources who say the pilot feared an estranged lover was about to go public.

According to the report, the alleged lover was another pilot, also stationed in Arizona.
Button was flying in a formation April second, when his plane veered away and disappeared. It took more than two weeks to find the wreckage.
