MONTABAUR, Germany (AP) -- Investigators have been searching the apartment where Andreas Lubitz lived in the German city of Duesseldorf -- as well as the home of his parents. They're trying to find out why he flew a plane carrying 150 people into the side of a mountain in the French Alps on Tuesday, killing everyone on board. Prosecutors say it's clear from the cockpit voice recording that it was intentional. They say Lubitz locked the pilot out of the cockpit, and sent the plane into its descent -- even as the pilot desperately pounded on the door, trying to get back inside. Investigators could be seen leaving his parents' home with blue bags, a big cardboard box and what looked like a large computer. A neighbor described Lubitz as calm and low-key and said he was a regular jogger who appeared to be in good health. The neighbor says he won't believe that Lubitz deliberately took his own life and 149 others "until it is 100 percent confirmed." Acquaintances say Lubitz seemed normal and happy when they saw him last fall as he renewed his glider pilot's license. Officials in Duesseldorf say Lubitz underwent a regular security check two months ago, and it found nothing unusual.
