Moore likely to be Velvet (hehe, a pun), gradual changes do happen in young goldfish, however rapid changes are something to watch out for.

Was the skin fuzzy or peeling? If fuzzy, it was probably columnaris and that can kill in the matter of hours. If the skin was peely, that is probably a sign of a huge pH crash. Are there any other fish in the tank?

since this is a message board - without a visual, it's pretty hard to deduce anything from your description (as it was when you first posted this).

Goldfish can and do change colours as they mature. But the change in colour could have also been fungal, parasitic, bacterial.

First of all, how long did you have the fish? Goldfish do require aquarium salt and no heater for the tank. With the picture provided, the goldfish seem to have had a serious disease, but I do not know the name, but I can see that thats one dead fish.
