Two women's deaths on lake still a mystery

        MONTICELLO, Ky. — Preliminary autopsy results failed to turn up a cause of death for two Ohio women whose bodies were found floating in Lake Cumberland, a deputy coroner said Monday.

        The bodies of Connie Bauchmoyer, 46, and her daughter, Katie, 21, both of Pickerington, Ohio, were found Friday afternoon near the ladder of a houseboat they shared with Mrs. Bauchmoyer's husband, Dale Bauchmoyer, and the couple's other daughter, Kelly, 21.

        Forrest Hicks, deputy coroner for Wayne County, said Monday that authorities could not rule out drowning and were awaiting toxicology results that may not be ready for another two to three weeks.

        He said electrocution was one of “several possible scenarios” investigators were looking at but said “there's no signs in the autopsy that point to” it being the cause of death.
