Concern Grows As Another US Tourist Dies In Dominican Republic

A fourth American tourist has been reported dead at a Dominican Republic resort in the past two months, according to Fox News.

Bell Wallace had been staying at the luxury Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana - where Rojo, 29, and his family had been staying this week.

"He started feeling very sick, he had blood in his urine and stool right afterward", Arnold said of her uncle, who had arrived in the country with his wife a day earlier.

Arnold further explained that the hotel doctor had checked Wallace, and decided on April 13 that he had to be hospitalized.

She said she always doubted the cause of death. Wallace died the day of the wedding, Tickenoff told the station. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino said it's confident that all operational protocols were followed. His niece, Chloe Arnold, told Fox News that he became ill after having a drink from the his hotel room's minibar. Schaup-Werner was staying at the Bahia Principe La Romana when she suffered a heart attack.

- Cynthia Day, 49, and Nathaniel Holmes, 63, also of Maryland, were found dead in their rooms five days later, on May 30, at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana at the same resort.

"We don't want to jump to conclusions, but it seems like the embassy, sounds like now the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is involved", Tickenhoff said.

A SERIES of deaths at luxury holiday resorts in the Dominican Republic are to be investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Jupiter, its largest moons, will be visible with binoculars Monday night
Jupiter , the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest in the Solar System- is at its biggest and brightest this month. However, NASA says, the entire month is an equally good time to check out the planet and its four largest moons.

Arnold said the family has been particularly concerned after having recently learned of the other seemingly mysterious deaths in the Dominican Republic.

Since March, nearly 70 people have reported becoming "violently" ill while on vacation in the Dominican Republic, according to iwaspoisoned.com - a website that tracks food-borne illness outbreaks.

Miranda Schaup-Werner, 41, also died after consuming a drink from her minibar at Bahia Principe Hotel on May 25.

"It's tough. I mean, you're in the process of grieving a family member and then all these other instances come out where it just kind of adds to the pain of not knowing what happened", Wallace's son-in-law said.

- Last year, Yvette Monique Sport, 51, of Pennsylvania, died after drinking from the minibar at the Bahia Principe in Punta Cana during a trip with her fiance.

Essentially, this means that the last three months have seen 60 more reported illnesses on the island than in the entire year of 2018.

Kaylynn Knull said she and her boyfriend enjoyed their vacation until they noticed their room beginning to smell of chemicals.
