I would wonder if ammonia level's could have become elevated in the tank at some point prior to your return? Is easy for this to happen if possible overfeeding took place, or water changes were not performed as regularly (weekly).
Cannot rule out that fish was sick when purchased and succumed for reason's unknown.
I keep a sponge filter going in one of my tanks at all times so that when I need to set up quarantine tank,,I can move the already established sponge to the quarantine tank and with careful monitoring,,not see ammonia level's rise to stressful/lethal level's.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
