The Dominican Republic has been in headlines recently for all the wrong reasons. In May, Maryland couple Edward Nathaniel Holmes, 63 and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, were found dead in their hotel room. Within a week, a woman from Pennsylvania, Miranda Schaup-Werner, 41, died at the same hotel chain. One hotel is disputing the timeline of an alleged attackof a Delaware woman that also made news that week. On top of that, David Ortiz, one of the most popular players in Boston Red Sox history, was shot in his native Dominican Republic June 9.
At least seven Americans have died this year in the Dominican Republic, with questions being raised about what is going on. In addition to the incidents detailed above a man (who the State Department has not identified by name) also became ill and later died on April 14. The Maryland couple who died, Holmes and Day, each had internal bleeding, preliminary autopsy results showed, according to CNN. Holmes was found to have an enlarged heart and cirrhosis of the liver, while Day had fluid in her brain. Schaup-Werner reportedly died after drinking from his hotel's minibar. The brother of "Shark Tank" star Barbara Corcoran, New Jersey-native John Corcoran, also died in the Dominican Republic in April. But Corcoran says her brother's death was of natural causes related to an existing heart condition. No official cause of death has been determined for any of the deceased so far.
The short answer, yes. Travelers are also reporting illness and other negative experiences. A group of Jimmy Buffett fans, members of the Central Oklahoma Parrothead Association, told Oklahoma TV station KFOR and NBC News that they became seriously ill while staying at the Hotel Riu Palace Macao in Punta Cana in April. And in May, a Delaware woman said in a Facebook post that she was beaten and left for deadin January, writing that a man in a uniform bearing the logo of her Punta Cana hotel, the Majestic Elegance Resort, attacked her, assaulting her badly enough to warrant a five-day hospital stay. The Dominican Republic hotel, however, says the woman, Tammy Lawrence-Daley, demanded $2.2 million in compensation before going public with her story.
The incidents have occurred at various proprieties across the Dominican Republic. Deaths have been reported at the following locations: 1. Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville (owned by Bahia Principe) 2. Bahía Príncipe hotel at the resort Playa Nueva Romana (owned by Bahia Principe) 3. Terra Linda in Sousa 4. Excellence Resorts in Punta Cana Other incidents have been reported at theHotel Riu Palace Macao in Punta Cana, the Majestic Elegance Resort in Punta Cana and the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo.
