If it's caved in, you can throw it away. Are all your RES females? If it was laid in the water and in there too long, it wouldn't be viable.

Welcome to the site!
You mentioned that normally they eat their eggs...they have done this before? There is a good page on this site that explains why turtle lay eggs in water. It might help in the future. http://redearslider.com/physical_conditions.html
