Kathrin Goldbach, the girlfriend of Andreas Lubitz, who “deliberately” crashed the Germanwings plane in the French Alps killing 150 people, is reportedly pregnant with their first child.
Goldbach broke off the relationship due to Lubitz’s increasingly erratic and controlling behavior just weeks before the crash.
German newspaper Bild reports the couple had an off-and-on again relationship for the last seven years. Kathrin Goldbach, a teacher, reportedly broke off the relationship with Lubitz because his erratic behavior left her in fear for her safety.
There are reports that investigators found a “small mountain of pills” during a search of Lubitz’s apartment. He was refusing to take his anti-depressant medication.
Separately, there are reports that he told captain Patrick Sondheimer multiple times that he can go to the bathroom any time and that he would take over the controls. According to recordings from the doomed Germanwings flight’s black box, Sondheimer can be heard screaming, “Open the goddamn door!” as Lubitz flew the plane into the French Alps.
Lubitz was reportedly living on the edge due to a deteriorating blurry vision and was said to be fearful that he would lose his job.
