Reminiscent of the Payne Steward crash which also had slumped over pilot and fogged / iced windows.

32,000 feet sounds a bit high for a C421. It's service ceiling is 30,200 feet.

Looks like his cruise altitude was 27,000 feet and then an hour into the flight trouble started.

He hit the water. Coast guard planes witnessed it and the plane is intact.... let's hope for the best.
