(Reuters) German police on Friday said they’d found evidence to suggest that the co-pilot responsible for this week’s Germanwings plane crash was unfit to work on the day of the disaster.
Investigators searched the home of 28-year-old Andreas Lubitz where they found documents suggesting he was hiding a medical condition from his employers.
Investigators are expected to interview the doctor who issued the notes to uncover the nature and duration of Lubitz’s illness.
Lubitz is accused of intentionally crashing the Airbus A320 in the French Alps, killing all 150 people on board.
Officials said a partially torn sick note showed that Lubitz may have ignored doctor’s orders to take medical leave on the day of the fatal crash.
