Shutterfly died? Do you have a link to a news article or anything? As far as I was aware he was just retired and I can't find anything on google

...I don't think he died.

Hickstead died. Shutterfly was retired.

In case you are interested, here is his pedigree

Shutterfly Hanoverian

There is no mention of his death on shutterfly's facebook page and I'm friends with M. Beerbaum and no mention there either. Maybe you mixed it up with Hickstead.

Hickstead died of a ruptured aorta, as to answer your original question.
