Something killed my crab

Not sure what happened, came home to this.... Not sure who did it. Only things in the tank are: Ocellaris Clownfish, Blue tang, Peppermint Shrimp and Royal Gramma Basslet. And a few bumble bee slugs. Any ideas?

Probably a molt. Take it out of the tank and see if it's hollow.

Ya that's what it was. Thanks for the help! Don't know why I did not think of that my shrimp does it once a week.

It's an honest mistake that I made once.

I freaked out a while back when I came home and saw this, but just a molt, lol, my shrimp has gotten me a couple times like that, his molt looks just like him.
