ABILENE, Texas - Foul play isn't suspected in the death of a 30-year-old woman whose body was found late Wednesday at Lake Kirby, Abilene police said Thursday in an email.
The woman has been identified as Amanda Conaway, who police said recently moved to Abilene from Stephenville.
According to the email from Abilene Police Sgt. Lynn Beard, Conaway's family and the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office say she may have had "some medical conditions" that contributed to her death.
"That is still under investigation by medical personnel," Beard said.
Before Thursday's news release, Beard had said homicide hadn't been ruled out as a possibility for Conaway's death.
Conaway, who was identified through fingerprints, was wearing a swimsuit "when found at the lake shore which may explain her presence at that location," Beard said in the email.
"The Tarrant County Medical Examiner has stated that no foul play is suspected in this death," Beard said in the news release. "We are waiting on toxicology results before a final autopsy report is issued. That is expected to take (six to eight) weeks."
Conaway's body was discovered about 9:20 p.m. Wednesday at the northwest portion of the lake – just off of Maple Street – near the baseball fields. Witnesses told police she was last seen alive about 6:30 p.m.
