Seems the 'skydiver hitting the Stab' theory is out.

I used to fly jumpers in Ireland (the State and the North) and I don't recall any rules in the Free State. In the North (UK) I had to be approved by the BSPA.
That said, I never carried passengers. Everybody who got in was gone for the landing.

Witness observation of " sideways " suggests side slip for a rapid descent may be the cause. If that was the case, I wouldn`t have thought it would be a clever trick with a Caravan, especially if the slip was continued for any duration during the descent.
