Maybe we will never know.
From the underwater images, I don't think he left the cockpit by choice.
From my recollection of the photographs (I couldn’t find all of them this time) the fuselage, as reported at the time was “largely in one piece”.
Did the nose section break away?
Just seems that if the pilot had succumbed to any poisoning and this explains any loss of control, that he might have been found in his seat. With my limited knowledge of the Malibu, entry and exit would seem to be easier for passengers than for front seat occupants.
I am not suggesting anything suspicious but it is just another puzzle.
Harness parts on impact, screen has gone. Whether "ejected" or floated out, who knows. But looking at that, I doubt he climbed over his passenger and swam away.
The quickest way to fall out with people is, discuss politics.
