Insisting that post-mortem images demonstrate she had been severely battered, the family of swimming sensation Jamie Cail has disagreed with the official conclusion that she died of an overdose.
On February 21, at after midnight, her boyfriend Kamal Thomas discovered the 42-year-old unconscious on St. John Island in the US Virgin Islands.Thomas, 34, a ‘bad boy’ according to authorities, told police he discovered Cail after leaving the bar.
As of right now, authorities have determined that she accidentally overdosed on fentanyl.But according to her relatives, images that were sent to Insider but withheld from publication as a result of their gruesome content demonstrate that Cail’s “face was smashed in.” According to Jessica DeVries, who claimed to be the former US national swimmer’s cousin, the images show that her death was not an accident, and her family is demanding that “justice” be done.’Jamie’s face was smashed in, the top of her skull and nose,’ Jessica asserted based on the images.Her face has been beaten. Did fentanyl give her that effect?Jamie did not purposefully consume fentanyl, as far as we know.
Definitely, there has been foul play, stated Jessica. In a now-deleted social media post, Jessica—who calls herself a “psychopharmacologist”—added that while she accepts the toxicology findings, “what I don’t accept is the accident part.”I am aware of how simple it is to overdose on fentanyl; it just takes a few grains of salt to kill someone.She didn’t abuse opiates.
This was on anything she consumed, smoked, or drank. According to a report given last week to the US Virgin Islands Police Department by a Virgin Islands coroner, Cail, a teenager who competed for the US team at the 1997 Pan Pacific Championships, passed away from “fentanyl intoxication with aspiration of gastric content” and that the cause of death was “accidental.”Jessica, however, criticized the decision as “atrocious” and asserted that images of Cail’s body taken in March by a family liaison demonstrated that “someone put their hands on Jamie.”We demand openness and justice, said Jessica, adding that she and the rest of her family felt “completely failed” by the neighborhood authority. The family is ‘extremely sad to see Jamie’s reputation damaged in this way.’Jamie did not use fentanyl or any other type of narcotic.
She wasn’t a drug user. She was an outstanding swimmer who committed her entire life to the sport; she deserves to have that honor,’ Jessica added. When she was a teenager, Cail won a gold medal in the 800m free relay at the Pan Pacific Championships. The following year, while representing the US Swimming National B Team at the Swimming World Cup in Brazil, Cail brought home a silver medal in the same event. She also won the 500-meter free swim and the 200-meter individual medley events at the California high school championship.The Virgin Islands Police Department and the US Virgin Islands Office of Medical Examiner have been approached by MailOnline for comment.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
