Hard objects will not compress. Shatter into smaller pieces like the CF cylinder, but the ends will likely look like bent bottle caps.

No idea whether this is true, but it certainly is interesting.

I don't believe that to be legit: similar 'last logs' have been faked previously in spaceship accidents (like Challenger). Language looks too simplistic.

Something like that may have happened though, as according to Rob McCallum (who was involved with the project in early stages) Titan had reported it had aborted the dive and dropped weights. So some sort of problem apparently did manifest.
