What The Hell Is Happening In The Dominican Republic?

Today Show

A United States woman died of respiratory failure in her Dominican Republic hotel room days before another USA couple died of the same cause at the same resort, a hotel staff member told ABC News. Maryland couple Cynthia Ann Day, 49, and her fiance Nathaniel Edward Holmes, 63, were staying at the Baha Principe hotel in Playa Nueva Romana.

"He [Dan Werner] was understandably in shock but the whole thing was just so stunning", McDonald said.

A popular luxury resort in the Dominican Republic claims that a US tourist who recently alleged that she was assaulted there in January went public after they refused her demand for $2.2 million.

The two families are searching for answers after the loss of their loved ones in the same resort five days apart.

Three U.S. tourists died of respiratory failure in a string of deaths all occurring at the same resort complex in the Dominican Republic, local authorities said, and families of the deceased are raising questions.

"The U.S. Department of State and our embassies and consulates abroad have no greater responsibility than the protection of U.S. citizens overseas". Investigators said they also found high blood pressure medication and three prescription pill bottles in the room, one of which contained 5 mg doses of the painkiller Oxycodone. According to reports, Schaup-Werner settled in with a drink from their room's mini bar, and shortly after she screamed out for help before she collapsed to the floor.

Following the couple's death, the hotel posted a statement saying "there were no signs of violence", adding, "we are in complete collaboration with authorities, but as the investigation is ongoing, we have no further information to share". "We once again express our condolences to Mr. Werner and his family and friends on the passing of Mrs. Schaup-Werner".

Holmes and Day were engaged, and were from Prince George's County, Maryland, relatives told CNN affiliate WBAL. Authorities say they were provided medical treatment but both of them died days later.

After she was found roughly eight hours later, Lawrence-Daley said she spent five days at a clinic in the Dominican Republic and underwent surgery to fix her injuries, adding, "I am still dealing with several issues, including nerve damage, as well as all of the medical expenses since being home".

Miranda Schaup-Werner from Pennsylvania died on May 25th; Edward Nathaniel Holmes and his fiancee Cynthia Day were found dead in their room there five days later.

La Romana is on the Dominican Republic's Caribbean coast, and has a population of about 130,000.

Fishermen found Ravenelle, 52, seriously injured, and she was taken to a hospital, but she died April 4.

"After their investigation, authorities understand that the scenario is still unclear, and that there are weak points and unanswered questions to answer in this odd and unusual case".

The body of Moore, 40, was found at sea on March 31, authorities said.
