Mature tomatoes wilting and rotting at base

by Jamey
(West Virginia, USA)

I have tomatoes that are about a month old in my garden. They were looking great and then one started to look wilted this seemed unusual to me since I had mulched them with newspaper and straw.

Then another one started doing the same thing. I dug down under the mulch and noticed that the plants were turning brown and the one that had wilted completely was completely rotted off at the base.

What do I do any help would be greatly appreciated.
