Investigators for the US Virgin Islands Police Department are “anxiously awaiting” Jamie Cail’s autopsy and toxicology results.

He said that all deaths were looked into by the Criminal Investigations Bureau but added that there were “a lot of moving parts” in the probe.

Cail, 42, was found unresponsive by her boyfriend in their St John home at 12.08am on 21 February, police said.

Cail’s partner and a friend took her to a clinic where she was given CPR before being pronounced dead. A cause of death has not been revealed.

Cail, from New Hampshire, was a top high school and university athlete who was part of a relay team that won a gold medal at the 1997 Pan Pacific Championships. She later swam for the University of Maine.

According to police, her unnamed boyfriend had been out at a bar on the night that she died.

Anti-vaxxers share video insisting Cail’s death ‘not normal’

As we await news from the US Virgin Islands police on the death of Jamie Cail, the information void is being filled unhelpfully and baselessly by online speculation about the possible cause.

One YouTube video in particular from a media outlet called the Black and White Sports Network is being shared in which the host simply reads out a Breitbart report about her death and insists it is “not normal” for a 42-year-old athlete to pass away so suddenly.

He freely admits that he does not know any more about the case than anyone else but insinuates that an adverse reaction to a Covid — 19 vaccine could be to blame.

To reiterate, the authorities have still not given an update on Jamie Cail’s autopsy results or cause of death or said anything more regarding the investigation since announcing its commencement.
