It seems likely that it was a murder(of everyone else on the lane)-suicide by the chief pilot, but we'll never know for sure anything other than than a lot of people didn't do their jobs. And Malaysian police and government don't want to know, and what they do know, they don't want to be made public, probably just because it would highlight the incompetence. And finally, that part of the world is a ****hole of incompetence and corruption (which of course everyone knows anyway). But this long investigative article makes an interesting read for those who like mysteries with a lot of deductive technological indirect forensics. It also comes complete with an Indiana Jones wannabe, who has actually done as much as anyone to find physical clues. And private investigative teams from Australia and around the world, who have made a lot of probably true deductions using technological forensics of what data there is (and that part is pretty cool). But the Maylaysian government wants all of them to go away, and everyone just to forget the episiode, just in case they find someting out, though what that might be is probably nothing but more confirmation of corruption and incompetence. Bottom line, despite all the conspiracy theories, it seems to be mostly a cautionary tale that though there are good people everywhere, there really are a lot of ****hole countries. Which I imagine comes as no surprise to anyone but U.S. Democrats.
