Cerealis Dead, cause?

Okay well RIP to my new a. cerealis. I was lucky enough to have fragged the heck out of it before it went. My question is the ID of the illness/problem. The acropora turned white from base up, however it took place over several days so slow in fact that I mistook it for bleching even up to last night. It was this morning when I smelled the putrid stink of dead coral that I realized it wasn't coming back. So, here is what I had,

1.) bottom up bleaching took 3 days to consume 50% of a 5" colony
2.) heavy mucus looking coat on all the effected stems
3.) horrible "wharf after a cleaned catch" smell.

Could be seveal things, the catch phrase is STN (s=slow), tends to start from the base up and is common in stressed specimens.
