Examiners say no foul play in UGA grad student death

February 19, 2008

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Medical examiners did not find any trace of alcohol or illegal drugs in the body of a University of Georgia graduate student who was found in a pond last month.

Medical examiners at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's crime lab also did not find any signs of foul play in the death of 29-year-old Cayle Bywater.

Bywater had taken medication to treat a mental disorder, but authorities would not say what the medication was.

Police say the case is closed.

Bywater went missing December 29th and investigators at first believed she may have gone off her medication and gotten lost while walking her dog in a park.

Volunteers helped search the park and surrounding areas. A dive team found Bywater's remains in a pond in the park on January Eleventh. She had drowned.
