Germanwings co-pilot researched deadly drugs, living will

BERLIN (AP) -- German prosecutors say the co-pilot who crashed Germanwings Flight 9525 researched how to get hold of deadly drugs and the possibility of a living will -- a finding that suggests he was mulling other means of killing himself until the last minute.

Duesseldorf prosecutor Christoph Kumpa confirmed a report Friday in the daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung that Andreas Lubitz searched online in March for ways of getting hold of potassium cyanide, valium and lethal combinations of medicines. He also searched for the term "living will" on March 23, the day before the crash.

A living will spells out a patient's wishes for medical care if he is unable to communicate with doctors.

Prosecutors have said Lubitz deliberately crashed the Airbus A320 into a mountainside, killing all 150 people on board.
