Complaint - Visibility Wiper

TRUCK WAS PARKED, REAR DEFROSTER HAD BEEN ON THE HOUR LONG TRIP. PARKED AT DESTINATION, A FEW MINUTES LATER THERE IS A LOUD POP SOUND, AS IF A ROCK HAD FALLEN ON THE ROOF OF THE TRUCK. AFTER WHICH I LOOK TO INSPECT POSSIBLE DAMAGE, TO MY SURPRISE THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE TO SUSPECT ANY TYPE OF DAMAGE. I LOOKED ON THE ROOF, THE BED ON THE TRUCK AND THE SURROUNDING OF THE VEHICLE. FOUND NOTHING TO SUSPECT AND COLLISION HAD HAPPENED. I DISMISSED THE NOISE SINCE THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE OF DAMAGE. THE NEXT MORNING I START UP MY TRUCK TO GO TO WORK AND LOOK THROUGH THE REAR VIEW MIRROR AND FIND THE LEFT REAR DRIVER SIDE WINDOW IS SHATTERED COMPLETELY. I THEN BEGAN TO INVESTIGATE THE DAMAGE BY LOOKING FOR POINT OF IMPACT TO ONLY CONCLUDE THERE IS NO SUCH POINT. THE SHATTER IS A THROUGH AND THOUGH SHATTER, CLEAN SPIDER WEB LIKE SHATTER. IS THERE A FAULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF THE TEMPERED GLASS, THE HOUSING FRAME OF THE GLASS IMPROPERLY INSTALLED, MAYBE IT IS SHORT IN THE REAR DEFROST SYSTEM. HOPING THERE IS AN ANSWER TO THIS MYSTERIOUS PHENOMENA.
