To look at a video just go to youtube.com and look under frilled shark and click on the longest one, there is only ~ 3.
Pretty neat but in teh video you can tell it is very sick.

I hope we get more news soon, when I was searching there was not very much information on this shark. I hope we can learn a lot!

it was probably sick because it lives incredibly deep in the ocean, and the pressure difference near the surface was too much for it to handle. Did the report say if it was caught by fishermen?

I think stress may be a factor into why it ended up dying so quickly because since they live so deep in the water, the pressure changes and the huge amounts of light it would affect it detrimentally

The reason it came to the surface may have been because it was ill.

Is this a prehistoric fish and is it true that this fish and many like it from the time of the dinosaurs swam down to the very deep ocean?

that fish was there long before the dinasaurs... Many sharks are living fosills...

I get the feeling that you are asking if they literally moved to the deep ocean.

It wasn't that they (as a species) used to live further up, and then moved down. They evolved down there, and have been there since they became a species, which was (for some) before the time of the dinosaurs, as Mr.Mystery pointed out.
