IN this case the bolt had definitely failed. You could easily see where the bolt had necked down and was failing.

The lesson I learned from this is that you should probaby use the stretch method in combintation with a torque wrench. If the stretch is reached without hitting somewhere near the suggested torque levels, there could be a problem.
