That ruled out the claim that the pilot went unconscious due to the G-force as we all know F-16 of that variant does not have Auto-GCAS.
I can deduce from the video that he tried to pullup the jet but could not make it, he was able to complete the maneuver though but not to pull the nose probably tried to throw the jet somewhere away from populated areas.
CONFIRMED NEWS :

Pilot didn’t eject, till the last moment, tried to save the F-16 and people nearby.
His body was found intact and the nose and cockpit were also not that much damaged as the crash impact was from the rear fuselage

If you notice in the video the plane diving fast toward the ground, I think the pilot let up on pressure to the stick in attempt at stopping G-lok. This is a description from a F-18 pilot.

If you haven't yanked on the pull, there are times when you can experience the various stages up to G-LOC and let up on the stick pressure to keep from entering sleepy time. The tunnel vision, loss of color vision, sparkly peripheral vision, and a few others are good indicators that you're at the edge. That next step, black out, is a fine slice between here and not here.
Could be ground based ECM attack. Plane was not at high altitude, when it's controls failed.

It has been track record of PAF, there best of the pilots are either killed or side lined or retired.
In similar way many of the star generals were killed during WoT.
Seems our terrorist have rel time information on movement of such star people.
