Can someone post the audio from the tower?

Last I saw it was at 5,800 feet and diving at 10,000fpm then the sensors said 29,000fpm at the very last minute

         I know it's way too early, but did these guys run out of fuel ?

I don't think it was fuel. From what I've read and seen it seems like weather may have been a factor and possibly a cargo shift.
