Beijing– As the investigation into the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 moved into its third day with still no clues as to what happened to the plane and its 239 passengers, officials have publicly announced several theories being actively pursued by local agencies. “We have three main theories right now; a catastrophic mechanical failure, terrorism, and – David Blaine. We can rule none of these out yet,” said a Malaysian official. Those with knowledge from within relevant agencies have said that David Blaine, famed American magician, illusionist and endurance artist – tops the list of most likely and capable of pulling off a feat of this scale.
“We have not released any additional suspect identities but will be working with relevant global agencies where necessary,” said Malaysian officials earlier today. Blaine has been unreachable for comment, though sources including TMZ have indicated that he has been spotted as recently as last evening in New York City, where he lives.
Flight MH370 disappeared from radar while cruising at 35,000 feet, heading for Beijing Saturday night. There were no distress calls or known severe weather conditions to explain the incident, which continues to puzzle investigators. “As weird as it sounds – Blaine hasn’t had a special or big event in years, it really could explain alot here,” said one investigator with knowledge of the incident. Blaine has not yet been formally charged.
