Beyond the grave site, in the stands of trees rimming the grassy field bordering the cemetery, birds are singing in the early morning chill. Cus D'Amato died at 77 in 1985, one year before his protege, Mike Tyson, won his first heavyweight championship. D'Amato lived the last 17 years of his life in this Hudson River town of 2,500, about 100 miles north of New York. He lived in a 14-room Victorian home, owned by Camille Ewald, on a bluff overlooking the Hudson.

Federal investigators concluded today the 1985 New Year Eve plane crash that killed singer Rick Nelson and six other people was caused by a fire around a heater--not by free-basing of cocaine. The National Transportation Safety Board, releasing its report on the crash of the World War II-vintage DC-3, said while it could not establish that the blaze started in the cabin's gasoline-fueled heater, "There is no doubt that the fire did originate in the area of the heater."
