Three American tourists who lost their lives in a hotel Bahia Principe, located in La Romana, Dominican Republic, all died of an identical and mysterious cause.
On May 25, Miranda Schaup-Werner, a 41-year-old psychotherapist from Pennsylvania collapsed in front of her husband after taking an alcoholic drink from her minibar, reports Fox News.
Five days later, Edward Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, were found dead in their all-inclusive room.
All three died as a result of respiratory arrest, reports Fox News. According to Ms. Schaup-Werner’s family, these three deaths can not be the result of mere coincidence.
“At first, it was a bit confusing that there was such a strong parallel … it immediately caused us serious concern,” said Jay McDonald, spokesperson for the deceased’s family.
“Something worrying is happening and we want to know what it is,” he added.
Miranda Schaup-Werner and her husband were in the Dominican Republic to celebrate their ninth birthday. She suddenly collapsed on the floor while drinking alcohol.
Her husband tried to revive her, without success.
The paramedics sent her an ephedrine injection, which is usually given to people with a strong allergic reaction.
The death of the lady was however found on the spot.
Authorities have superficially touched on the cause of death, according to the family of the deceased.
“She was perfectly healthy, everything seemed fine,” said the family spokesperson.
The US Embassy is actively monitoring the investigations launched by the Dominican authorities into these tragic deaths.
These mysterious deaths are revealed shortly after the mediatization of the wild and gratuitous aggression of another American tourist in Punta Cana, while she was on vacation in the country last January.
