Joseph Stack, authorities said, flew his small air plane into an office building in North Central Austin, where several employees of the Internal Revenue Service worked. Stack and one IRS employee, Vernon Hunter, 68, were killed in the attack.
The daughter of a man who crashed his small plane into an Internal Revenue Service building called her father a hero for his anti-government views but said his actions, which killed a tax service employee, were "inappropriate."
Joe Stack's adult daughter, Samantha Bell, spoke to ABC's "Good Morning America" from her home in Norway. Asked during a phone interview broadcast Monday if she considered her father a hero, she said: "Yes. Because now maybe people will listen."
