To beperfectly frank it could be anything!

However discounting honest mistake or an agenda of deceit; one test you 
coulddo is t ostart car up from cold for a few seconds and then turn off and 
check for a 'pssst'  from the coolant cap when unscrewing. This would check 
your gasket...
What d oyou mean about the hoses being fiddled with??
