If they find the wreckage I suspect it will display evidence of a classic stall spin accident.

He had a great opportunity to divert in to Guernsey for the night, citing weather problems ,and still get the player back by mid morning the next day.

In normal circumstances a Pilot with a problem will seek help - I guess when you are breaking laws you press on and keep it to yourself hoping things will improve - seeking help can mean drawing a great deal of attention to yourself perhaps followed by a great deal of paperwork.
