Where is this a "known issue" from? I have never heard such a thing. Do you have any links to discussion about that?
I took that to mean it is a commonly accepted practise that if a Pi gets hot without an SD card inserted, it's dead.
How it died however, is a mystery, but I'm guessing what Dougie said is most likely.
My condolences on your loss though, it sucks losing a Pi, whether by user fault or otherwise.
I remember my first pi0w died within 2 hours of use to static discharge (as best I can tell) through user neglect.
I was told I couldn't buy another one as it was a one per person ever policy, and so I've been very vocal about that policy ever since.
