According to CNN, Carsten Spohr, the CEO of Lufthansa, the company that owns Germanwings, has confirmed to the public that there was no way the plane could have crashed the way that it did, (through a series of autopilot settings activated to descend before manually crashing) unless it was intentional.

BBC reports that the German media is speculating how the pilot was locked out of cockpit, claiming Lubitz did this when the pilot had left to go to the bathroom.

Investigators are currently searching Lubitz’ home and questioning his family to gain some understanding as to why he did what he did.
