While the whereabouts of missing Malaysian plane, Flight 370 continues to elude authorities, there is no question that it was taken off course by ‘deliberate action,’ Malaysian officials stated this weekend. Additionally, latest intelligence points to those who were in the cockpit as having a direct involvement in the disappearance of the missing plane.

While there is no official word as to whether the pilot captain, 53-year-old Zaharie Ahmad Shah, is responsible, he is under great public suspicion as 239 people remain missing. Over the weekend, his home was searched and public scrutiny is widely rampant. However, his friends and family members are quickly coming to his defense and declaring he is a generous man who couldn’t possibly have had anything to do with the plane’s detour.

Also under scrutiny is First Officer Fariq Ab Hamid, who was in the cockpit, yet reports that he planned to marry his girlfriend are causing some to doubt his involvement.

At this point, it is anyone’s guess what has happened as there is very little information confirmed. The investigation into the plane’s disappearance draws extreme criticism from nations involved.
