Try a water/bleach solution, it should kill any bacteria and take care of the odor.

You can clean the outside with a stiff brush and some abrasive tile cleaner, maybe followed by sandpaper and elbow grease. Making sure the inside is clean is harder...is there dead conch inside the shell? If so, you'll have to find a way to get it out before it can ever come into your house...

Bring it to the hospital and have someone in SPD run it thru the steam cleaner. Then use a soft muslin buff with some jewlers rouge to shine it up. Sand out any scales first with some 220 grit sand paper followed by some 1200 grit wet sand paper.
