The lonely VS/Rudder tells a tale that is hard to ignore
Only if you can read tea leaves.

The damn thing floats the rest of the stuff it was attached sunk. The fracture lines tell the story but I have no interest in jumping ahead of those with access to better photos.

Each part of the plane that hits the ocean does so at its own terminal velocity (aerodynamic shape) The attitude of the impact with the water results in hydraulic loading. Some of which will be obvious (as was TWA800).

There is much to be gleaned by the experts.
