The corroded hanger rod -- clearly visible in the balcony wreckage -- is apparently to blame.
That's according to an engineering report from an independent consultant hired by U-V-A.
The May 18th collapse during the university's commencement exercises dropped 23 people to ground, killing one woman and injuring 17.
The report points out that the unique detached design by Thomas Jefferson added to the risk of collapse if a metal rod failed.

The Food and Drug Administration is calling for warning labels on certain juices-- just one of several new safety measures.

Those at greatest risk-- children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems.
There's also an F-D-A consumer alert concerning oysters contaminated with a marine bacteria.
Eating raw oysters has left more than 100 people sickened in the west.
And following last week's beef recall, the Agriculture Department is considering tighter controls on meat, including the power to order mandatory meat recalls and impose stiff fines.
