I'm sorry to hear about your loss but I doubt that your friend's death was directly related to her untreated broken tailbone.  On the other hand, the reason that she sustained a broken tailbone could very well have led to her untimely demise.  
she did weigh alot and fallen on her tailbone so that does make sence thank you.
