Crab Cocktail?

This is the second time I've gone to Nanoose Bay to collect clams and come across a dead crab.  This one was almost 6 inches across the carapace and had no obvious signs of injury.

Not big enough to have died of old age ... 
No visible damage ...
Do crabs commit suicide?  Obviously not by drowning ... 

A moment of silence ....

Enough of the morbid crap and on to the real reason for the visit to Nanoose.  The clam tides are still good this month and it's time for another batch of Manhattan Clam Chowder.  Does anyone even make Boston chowder any more?  Gag!!!
