New info emerges from Andreas Lubitz's search history.

It's been more than a week since Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed a plane into the French Alps, killing all 150 passengers on board, and we're just now starting to learn more about the days leading up to the horrific incident.

New information on Andreas' iPad search history reveals the 27-year-old was plotting his mass murder suicide for about a week before the crash. In fact, investigators say he was researching different ways of committing suicide as well as the security measures of cockpit doors. Andreas reportedly locked the other pilot out of the cockpit before he intentionally crashed the plane.

This takes the drama typical of a Jerry Springer production to a whole new, scary level.

That's right, producer of The Jerry Springer show Jill Blackstone was at first arrested on Monday for the alleged murder of her deaf and partially blind sister, Wendy, before being released on Wednesday evening.

But now, police allegedly believe that she's behind all this after all.

According to law enforcement sources, paramedics arrived on the scene of Jill and Wendy's home on Saturday afternoon, where they found Wendy's body on the floor of their garage, which also had a BBQ grill inside.

The BBQ grill was laid out at Wendy's feet, which made cops believe that it was a murder scene, and Wendy was discovered holding a suicide note, which authorities now believe Jill wrote.
