A dormant VFT will have a white bulb beneath the soil.

I agree. Even if it looks dead, if you feel the rhizome and its still hard, you might have a chuck of white rhizome hidden in there, but that Fly Trap is history. RIP little fly trap.

Thanks. Thats what figured itd be like if it was dormant. Even if all the foilage above ground had died due to adverse weather etc, the roots would still be healthy?

I would imagine the roots would not deteriorate like above ground leaves might

What happens is if the top leaves get severely damaged, it weakens the plant and gives opportunity for bugs and diseases to attack the plant. I would try very hard to not damage the plant like that. If you do you would be better off cleaning off the dead and repotting it.
