A despondent Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah, troubled over the end of his marriage or some other unbearable sadness, was the only person awake on the doomed plane full of unconscious people, one theory goes. The suicidal pilot disabled communications on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, took a final pass over his home town, then torpedoed the Boeing 777 into the Indian Ocean, experts insisted.
"Investigators Insist MH370 Crash Was an Accident, Not a Mass Murder-Suicide by the Pilot" is from the May 22, 2018 World section of The Washington Post. It was written by Cleve R. Wootson Jr. and narrated by Sam Scholl.
