Investigator have long since suspected the pilot of missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 of foul play. Recently authorities came across the pilots phone records and what they found will shock you.
Investigators are following every lead in an effort to find missing Malaysia flight 370 and one of those leads has again led them to the pilot. Authorities say Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah received a short phone call just before the plane took off on its last voyage — the phone call, they say, could be the key to solving this mysterious case.
Malaysia Flight 370: Phone Call Links Pilot To Possible Terrorist Plot
The captain of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 received a two-minute call shortly before take-off from a “mystery woman” using a mobile phone number she obtained under a false name, reports the DailyMail.
A complete probe into the pilot’s phone records revealed that the call was one of the last made to or from the cell phone of Captain Zaharie in the hours before his Boeing 777 left Kuala Lumpur 16 days ago carrying some 239 passengers.
Investigators are treating it as a potentially significant lead because anyone buying a pay-as-you-go SIM card in Malaysia has to fill out a form giving their identity card or passport number.
The policy was enacted as an anti-terrorism measure following 9/11, this ensures that every number is registered to a traceable person.
But in this case police traced the number to a shop selling SIM cards in Kuala Lumpur, reports DailyMail.

“We have now had a number of very credible leads, and there is increasing hope — no more than hope, no more than hope — that we might be on the road to discovering what did happen to this ill-fated aircraft,” the Prime Minister said.
The Prime Minister then went into further detail about the objects spotted by satellites on the previous day — reiterating that they are about 2,400 kilometers (1,500 miles) off Perth.
“Obviously, the more aircraft we have, the more ships we have, the more confident we are of recovering whatever material is down there,” the Prime Minister said. “And obviously before we can be too specific about what it might be, we do actually need to recover some of this material.”
French authorities have also passed on images showing “potential objects in the vicinity of the southern corridor,” according to Malaysian transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein, who released the details on the same day.
“Malaysia immediately relayed these images to the Australian rescue coordination center,” Hishammuddin said.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Are authorities closer to finding out what happened to the missing plane or is this phone call another dead end?
