Unhappy Guppy Help!

I bought 3 guppies from my lfs yesterday and on my was home one of them started giving birth!! The male guppy ate most of them but I saved 8. The next day I went to feed the adult and fry but the mom was dead! She still had a gravid spot but her stomach was small. Does anyone have any idea how she died?? The two other guppies are fine and so is the fry.

There was not a filter, it was a temporary thing to keep her in while the fry where born.
