Default Agusta 609 crash

Heart felt condolences go out to the families, friends and co-worker of the two AW 609 pilots. Any word on what might have gone wrong. I am sure since this was a test flight they worn parachutes, did the problem start at altitude? I seem to remember years ago an Agusta crew bailed out of a helicopter during certification tests do to fire in the main gear box.
