It's possible koi herpes could be what killed all those fish. However, the temperature is getting hotter and water quality can also be a factor. Over feeding will cause a spike in ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. Nitrite level of 1.0+ can build up rather quickly and put all those fish to sleep. The Japanese Garden in Fresno took a similar hit and they blamed it on the lightning. No joke.
