Last week I noticed the leaves on this plant located in Central Florida wilted, It has gotten a lot worse and also the bark area is peeling back revealing dark and whitish underneath it. Anyone know what happened here please?

I have also attached an image of the bark damage in link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: bark

Looks like a pool enclosure. Was it getting heavily splashed with pool water?

Or Round Up? Lorapetulams aren't persnickety. It doesn't matter much as it's dead but you don't want the next fellow to die in the same way.
Cut it down to the ground, dig up the rootball and start with something new. If you are remotely frugal, cut it to the ground and wait 3-5 weeks. If you see anything green, just wait awhile as it will come back from the roots and be bigger than ever.

It is on the outside around the pool cage. The pool over flow pip is approx 2-3 feet away from this hedge. Initially I thought perhaps the chlorine water did this, however during the last 3 year or so of living here it had been fine?

Limeybstd, the white layer in the lower image could be a sign of
Amirilla Fungus.
