Good post Velvet Science.
I was going to make a similar post, you beat me too it and did a much better job than I would have.
I also noticed it was mentioned that other snakes are also dying. It seem as if the disease was transfered to other snakes, so who is to say that the first that died is the one responsible.
To name one breeder you got a snake from at this point, would probably later seem like a really bad move.
