Investigators came across the foreshadowing footage in an attempt to find answers regarding the tragedy. Lubitz was required to take a six-month medical break for depression and "burnout" before he returned and tested as "fit to fly."

Upon further investigation, officials reportedly discovered a "small mountain of pills" in Lubitz's apartment, which shed light on the severity of his troubles.

According to his former girlfriend, Lubitz once confided, "One day I will do something that will change the whole system, and then all will know my name and remember it."
