Heater Problem?

Hi guys,
I had a very strange death in my tank yesterday night... I found one of my platties floating, with no skin on half of her body, no tail. The fish showed no signs of stress in the morning.
The rest of fish seem fine. I suspect that somehow she managed to get stock behind the heater and got burned.

The tank has few platties, 5 clown loaches, weather loach, pleco, 7 schistura loaches. It's 72 gallon tank. No changes in water quality or temperature.

Any ideas will or advices will be greatly appreciated.
