The family of ex-swim champ Jamie Cail, who died of an alleged fentanyl overdose in the US Virgin Islands, claims she had been beaten — and that her death was not an accident.
Local police have said the 42-year-old woman, who hailed from New Hampshire, allegedly died of “fentanyl intoxication with aspiration of gastric content,” meaning particles from her stomach entered her lungs.
But Cail’s family disputes the finding that her death was “accidental.”
“We know that Jamie did not ingest fentanyl intentionally. There is definitely foul play,” Jessica DeVries, who identified herself as a cousin and a family rep, told Insider.
The family shared graphic post-mortem photos of Cail’s body with the news outlet that show her left eye apparently heavily bruised and a mark on her nose.See New York Post
