Austin, TX - - Homeland Security, police and fire crews are sifting through the debris at an Austin, Texas, office building where a man with a grudge against the government crashed his small plane yesterday.

Joseph Stack and at least one worker were killed. In an online posting, Stack accused the Internal Revenue Service of robbing him of his savings.

Stack's father-in-law tells The New York Times he knew Stack had a "hang-up" with the IRS and that his marriage was strained. The newspaper says Stack's wife took her daughter to a hotel to get away from him on Wednesday night.

Arson crews are also at Stack's home, which authorities believe he set on fire before slamming his plane into the building.

The Red Cross says his wife plans to speak to reporters today.
