We’ve been following the horrifying story of the Germanwings plane that was apparently brought down by a co-pilot suffering from mental issues weeks ago. This case involves constant new developments that are being brought to light each day.
The latest news of the crash is directed more at delving deep into the despair that Andreas Lubitz must have been facing to intentionally take down a plane carrying 149 others. Investigators have now found a technological device that was used by Lubitz in the final days before the incident. If you’re a fan of shows like “Forensic Files” that detail every facet of the scientific resources and genetically centralized methods that researchers utilize to solve crimes, you’ll understand the importance of every little clue within a case such as this.
After exploring the history on Lubitz’s tablet, there were several Internet searches recovered with keywords that correlated directly to suicide planning and mental disorder inquiries. The most telling, however, are the numerous searches to find more information on cockpit door locks and how they function. If you’ve been following the story, this is precisely how Lubitz used the controls to lock the pilot, Patrick Sodenheimer, out of the cockpit so he could began descending the plane into the French Alps.
Also, a vital piece of this mysterious puzzle has been located in the plane wreckage, according to CNN. The flight data recorder has been recovered by rescue teams in the French Alps. Hopefully, this will help bring the investigation full circle, supporting the variance of facts that have already emerged. This item should show the actions taken to lock the cockpit doors and if the keypad outside the door was activated by Patrick Sodenheimer in an effort to gain entry after being locked out by Lubitz. This story is still developing.
