Question

After receiving a call from an alarmed neighbor, the C.S.I. team arrives at the scene to find Mekal lying on a lounge chair in his own back yard, dead. “I didn’t hear or see anything suspicious,” said the neighbor who met the agents at the perimeter of the taped-off area. “I thought he was just sunbathing until I noticed that he was turning blue instead of tan.”

The investigators thoroughly examined Mekal and the scene. “Well, I’m baffled!” says one investigator to the other. “There’s absolutely no sign of foul play: the scene is clear, his body appears unharmed, and from what I understand, he was quite a swimmer and was in peak physical condition.”

“I concur,” said the other C.S.I.; “I have absolutely no doubt that the neighbor is telling the truth and I see no evidence that there was anyone else on the property. Heck, except for his tacky swim trunks, I see nothing out of the ordinary here.”

Back at headquarters, the following day, the investigators meet with the Coroner to see if he had uncovered something to solve the mystery of Mekal’s death. “Well, first off,” reported the Coroner, “the toxology report came back clear, and all tissue samples showed nothing irregular except the expected trace amounts of chlorine and sun tan oil...nothing at all harmful.” The Investigators looked at each other and shook their heads in confusion; “Well, what about internally?” they asked.

“That’s where things get interesting,” said the Coroner with a smirk on his face. “The autopsy showed that he did not die of natural causes.” he raised his eyebrows and continued, “In fact, what I found was a little shocking…”

How did Mekal die???

He did not die in an absurd way. His cause of death is a medically documented.

Is it something really obvious? Something that a fresh pair of eyes reading this topic would spot right away?

Because if so, we need some new blood in here! You had us all thinking outside the box and now we can't find our way back in. :P

what to know what i really hate... well even if you dont here it is... i really hate it when someone gives you a clue that doesn't help you at all...

No to war, yes to peace, Mekal! That clue is actually VERY helpful! The clue about swimming, that is.

Edit: clarification

Well, I still like the ML thing best, but

He had been diving deep and there was an oxygen bubble in his bloodstream, when he came back to the surface and his body acclimated to the lower pressure, the oxygen bubble expanded and killed him...

the bends?

I already ruled out the bends in an earlier post. He was a swimmer, not a diver. And, no, he didn't dive into the pool and hit his head and later die of a concusion (although that's a pretty good one, I must say so myself.)

Was it dry drowning? I remember reading an article a few months back about some young kid who died in his sleep a couple hours after swimming cause there was still water in his lungs.

My god. First post on the topic and I think you have it.

EDIT: Clarification

Here's a Big-Time Cheater hint:

The same thing happened to that poor boy in South Carolina this summer.

Lol...wow, first time I've heard of it...maybe I should keep up with the current events instead of imagining what's happening 1000 years from now...XP

P.S.: Sinistral, look at my avatar...

The eyes see everything...

Ok I can't participate anymore cause I looked in the spoiler and I Googled it...

I thought you ruled out asphyxiation...

I ruled out suffocation, and asphixiation as caused by ice, bugs, birds, wadded up Speedos and the like. Plus, drowning isn't exactly asphixiation...it's drowning. :)
