Seriously going with the shrapnel story?
The shrapnel has been very much debunked by aviation experts and photo analysis-types as mud and stones. Holes don't tend to cast shadows.
We saw this with MH17. Initially people saw the back of the plane and thought they could see holes, meaning the missile struck there. This turned out to be completely inaccurate, and the photos of the front of the cockpit showed damage that was easily shown to not be mud/stones, but shrapnel damage.
Don't just report what people are saying, go and check the details out.
