roof truss sprung

I had some work done. I had new facia and eaves troughs installed When they were done I looked up at the roof and it looked like a shingle was bent up. when I finaly got a ladder and went up to look. there was a big gap and the sheathing was lifted. the truss had loosened and had sprung. You can see that it has lifted the sheathing all the way up the roof as there is a bulge in the roof. Could the workers that installed the eaves and facia taken out some nails or whatever that could have caused this or is this just pure coincidence that this happened at the same time
