is it possible for bristle worms to kill peppermint shrimp?

last night i went to look at my tank after work to see one of my peppermint shrimps dead with a pretty big bristle worm on him and a boat load of pods. could it be the worm kill him?

Not likely. A healthy shrimp wouldn't just stand still while a bristleworm took him out. The shrimp probably died or perhaps dying and the worm and pods were just doing thier job.

Agree with fluff, a healthy shrimp is WAY to fast for a worm.
