Dear Alex,
We don’t know exactly what kind of an explanation you desire.  This is a Two Spotted Stink Bug,
Perillus bioculatus, and we don’t know why it died.  Two Spotted Stink Bugs are a predatory species, and according to BugGuide:  “Predatory, including on such pest species as the Colorado Potato Beetle.”
