DOVER-FOXCROFT — Maine State Police say foul play is not suspected in the death of a woman whose body was recovered from Sebec Lake in Dover-Foxcroft.

The state Medical Examiner’s Office performed an autopsy Wednesday but plans to conduct more tests before making a final determination on the cause of death of 50-year-old Carol Baird of Dover-Foxcroft. Her body was recovered about 50 feet off shore earlier Wednesday.

Police say it appears Baird and a companion, 64-year-old Barry Baird of Dover-Foxcroft, her former brother-in-law, went for a late-night swim.

The two had been staying at his lakeside camp.

Barry Baird was arrested at the scene for violating his bail conditions for having contact with her. He had been charged with terrorizing in an incident involving the woman on Aug. 14.
