Authorities are investigating the death of a onetime star swimmer in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Jamie Cail, 42, who was originally from New Hampshire, was found dead by her boyfriend on Feb. 21 just after midnight, Virgin Islands police said.
Police say that the boyfriend found Cail on the floor of their home after he returned from a local bar and that he and a friend took her to Myrah Keating Smith Community Health Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
"Once at the clinic, CPR was rendered and 911 was notified, however, the female succumbed to her ailment," police said.
Police did not offer further information about the nature of Cail's "ailment." Authorities also did not publicly identify Cail’s boyfriend.
The police department did not immediately respond to questions. Its Criminal Investigation Bureau is investigating Cail's death, the police statement said.
As a teenager, Cail won a gold medal in the 800 free relay as a member of the U.S. team at the 1997 Pan Pacific Championships, according to the swimming news website SwimSwam.
She won the California high school championship in the 200-meter individual medley and the 500 free, and she swam at the University of Southern California, according to SwimSwam.
She was also a swimmer with the University of Maine from 2000 to 2001, according to the school’s alumni association.
Cail's family members could not immediately be reached for comment Monday morning.
