While some outlets are reporting that Cail, who originally hails from Claremont, New Hampshire, passed away from an undisclosed illness, the Criminal Investigation Bureau is involved in the case. Authorities have not released the name of Cail’s boyfriend at this time.
Cail had quite a successful high school and college swimming career. She won a gold medal in the Pan Pacific Championships in 1997 and a silver in the World Aquatics Swimming World Cup in the 1998 to 1999 season, achieving both accomplishments as part of a national US team. Cail set records in several categories in the 15 to 16 age group that she still holds to this day. In her college years, she swam for the University of Maine and the University of Southern California.
In recent years, Cail worked locally on the islands at a coffee shop. One of her grieving friends told WMUR she was devastated by the loss of “a very beautiful person” with “a huge heart.”
