This is a tragedy, and nothing should take away from that.
That said, a 45 degree descent is nowhere near "almost straight down".
I thought she was born in America? How does that make her a Mexican?
If the plane started its dive at 28,000 feet and crashed 1.2 miles or 6336 feet downrange that calculates to 77.25 degrees. That's fairly steep. I don't know where you got 45 degrees. Tragic failure.
