Investigators think they now know who is responsible for disappearance of Flight MH370

Two stunning facts have been revealed that strongly suggest the captain of Flight MH370 was responsible for the loss of the flight which presumably killed 239 passengers and crew.
Even if the plane is not found, a likely story has been pieced together.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - As Australian officials say they have decided on the new search area for the missing plane, new information has emerged about its disappearance and with it a plausible theory.
Australian authorities have announced their search area for the plane. The region is further south and suggests the plane may have flown a little farther than previously anticipated. The new search area is the size of the state of Texas in area and is based on refinements of calculations performed previously.
Let us pray for those who have lost loved ones in this tragedy.
Despite the lack of any physical wreckage, the plane is widely assumed to be lost and new evidence appears to implicate the captain of the flight, 53-year old Zaharie Shah.
According to police, Shah did, in fact, practice landing on short island airstrips in the Indian Ocean on his home flight simulator. This powerfully suggests he could have premeditated hijacking the plane for himself and landing it on a remote island runway. A motive has not been assigned to this behavior.
The files were deliberately deleted before his final flight and were recently recovered by investigators. The islands are not simply emergency locations along the way, but locations far out in the ocean meaning he could have practiced the entire hijacking in advance.
The second, more damning clue, is that Shah had no plans following his last flight. Unlike all other people on the plane, including his co-pilot, Shah had no financial plans, no plans with friends or family for any time following the flight. Other crew and passengers had known, anticipated plans with others following their flight.
These two clues strongly implicate Shah. Shah also had the experience and opportunity, as well as a motive to perform such a deed, which in this case may have been an act of political protest, or just a suicide.
Shah's wife had just left him before, so he was likely to be emotionally distraught. He also reportedly had a heated phone conversation prior to takeoff, but the conversation was not said to be significant. That may have to be revisited.
It is hoped that when searches resume in August that the plane will be found intact and divers will be able to recover human remains. Careful examination of the crash site may shed important clues as to where people were and what was happening when they died.
A leading theory is that the passengers and crew may have died of hypoxia when the plane was flown to its maximum altitude. People would have momentarily struggled for oxygen, passed out and subsequently died.
Victims may have included Shah as well, unless he deployed an emergency air supply for himself. However, he may have opted to kill himself at the same time and left the autopilot on to fly the plan south into the expanse of the Indian Ocean.
For now, Shah remains a suspect, but a very likely one at that, given the clues. However, nothing is conclusive and until the wreck is found and recovered, what happened to flight MH370 will remain a mystery.
