How do they know the shark didn't first succumb to an illness, and then eaten by another animal or animals? Immediately after the shark would have died, it's body would be motionless, leaving its body vulnerable to hungry creatures. The shark's motionless carcass would be noticed by some passing creature and consumed before its body had the chance to descend to the ocean floor.
Because the shark was tagged.
They were following on radar and at no time was the shark stationary. The tag seemed to be in an animals belly. It was in waters that were very cold and yet the tag temp was reading 78 degrees for 5 day, <digesting time>.
If you didn't read the story, you should. Very interesting.

Thanks. I just read it. Fascinating as well as mysterious.
I saw this on some shark show the other day. Whatever ate it stayed deep for several days until the tag exited <lol>.
My bro knows a lot about the ocean and he thinks it was just a bigger shark. Squids are cold blooded so 78 is too high and orca's don't go that deep and stay there.

Maybe Megalodon is still swimming the oceans? If so and I'm swimming in the ocean, I hope it prefers great white meat VS old white guy meat.

It's very minutely possible, being as long thought extinct species have been "rediscovered" in the past few decades. And course, entirely new species.

And it's entirely possible... in theory anyway, that there are sea creatures living in the darkest depths that we don't know anything about. And when one of the biggest and nastiest decided to feed, it ascended far enough and happened upon the poor little great white. Yummy...

It was eaten by a Leviathan of the deep! My money would be on an Orca, or giant squid as a previous post suggested.
