Latest News in VIDEO: Oil heir found dead; Germanwings crash video could reveal final moments; Outrage over ‘Religious Freedom’
In today’s top news, the heir to Getty Oil has been found dead, leaving authorities to investigate whether he was the victim of an accident or natural causes. Two news magazines have confirmed the existence of a video showing the final moments of the Germanwings plane crash. Arkansas legislators are now considering a religious freedom bill that mimics Indiana’s.
‘Big Oil’ Heir Found Dead
Andrew Getty, the grandson of oil baron J. Paul Getty, was discovered dead at his home in Hollywood Hills. The local coroner official says Getty appears to have died in an accident or of natural causes. The preliminary investigation has ruled out foul play.
Authorities will continue to investigate Getty’s death. He was in line to inherit a fortune reported to be worth billions.
Germanwings Crash Video
There is talk of the existence of a video taken during the final moments of the ill-fated Germanwings plane that crashed in the French Alps last week. Details come from two separate magazines, one in Paris and one in Germany.
The editor of the Parisian news magazine ‘Paris Match’ told ABC News he is “absolutely positive” the video is authentic. ‘Paris Match’ co-editor said he has seen the video, and that it is one of the most disturbing he’s ever watched. He describes it as being extremely chaotic, with sounds of screaming passengers. The video was reportedly shot from the plane’s rear.
‘Bild’ a German magazine, has also released reports of the video.
Debate Continues Over Religious Freedom
The ‘religious freedom’ debate has moved from Indiana to Arkansas. Following Indiana’s passing of a controversial religious freedom law, Arkansas legislators are now considering an identical bill.
Indiana’s Governor Mike Pence signed the state’s religious freedom bill into law last week, amid national criticism. Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson says he will not sign his state’s bill, but will ask lawmakers to revise it to match federal law.
