I checked, she was not anywhere to be found. I checked everything and sifted through. Nothing. No exp-skeleton or anything. What do you think happened, I checked the skimmer and filter to see if she was sucked up but nothing. And I highly doubt she jumped out. What do you think?

You have checked all of the possibilities that I can think of. When a stomatopod decomposes usually at least the raptorial appendage dactyls are left.

Hello, long story short i believe i caused my mantis shrimp stress during the molt and it may have died.

Im starting to see a kind of white film looking thing cover its body. I want to take him out but im not sure if he is actually dead or just being super still.

Sorry this happened to you. I would take him out at this point as he is almost certainly deceased. How did you cause it stress? Death during a molt doesn't always mean the owner did something wrong. Mantis shrimp die during a molt in the wild just like they do in the aquarium. It's the most vulnerable time for them. Sometimes things just don't go well. Of course it's still a good idea to leave the mantis alone, stop doing WCs, etc...
