There are unconfirmed reports that Sonex CEO Jeremy Monnett was one of the fatalities. Monnett can be seen demonstrating N123SX in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AG3AmNn5CtY

Victim identities confirmed: Jeremy Monnett, CEO of Sonex, and Mike Clark, a Sonex assembly mechanic.

They crashed into a row of military vehicles parked near the runway, which sounds similar to where the victims of the Airventure 2014 crash also landed. Perhaps having those parked vehicles so close to the runway is a bad location to keep them?
