Yes Ted !  I saw the news just now.

A friend, Robson Hahn, aerospace engineer of the Department of Aerospace
Science and Technology of Aeronautics, says that the new piece "probably is
some interstage feed duct component or turbine exhaust structure".

Robson is investigating the area of possible falls using the coordinates
that you suggest, today he visited the site of the COPV fall (which is
isolated by local police), and he is maintaining contact with SpaceX.

About the COPV the tank fell only fifteen meters of a house and the heat
melted and sealed it. Seems that there is still pressure inside it.

I believe that more debris will be found, all towns of the region are very
small and the news sometimes linger to get out of the place.
