I've not seen that specifically, but I've seen suspension bolts sheer if the aren't torqued properly. Has suspension work been done on the bike?

Another problem that has occurred in the past is counterfeit high tensile bolts being dumped into the market. Back in the 80s some company was discovered to be plating grade II bolts and stamping them as grade VIII. That could have been the cause of some airliners dropping their engines ala Donnie Darko.

That's pretty unlikely though. I'd bet the bolts weren't tightened properly.
