3 tourists die at Dominican Republic resort within 5 days

In another case, Dominican police are investigating an attack on a USA tourist in Punta Cana that the woman recently made public on social media, detailing a vicious hours-long assault by a man she said was wearing the uniform of an all-inclusive resort.

Authorities claim the Maryland couple suffered from respiratory failure, but are not exactly sure what caused the fatal ailment in both of them.

An investigation is underway in the Dominican Republic, after three U.S. citizens were found dead in a resort in the Dominican Republican city of La Romana at the end of May.

She was with her husband, Dan Werner, at the resort celebrating their ninth wedding anniversary when she suddenly collapsed in her hotel room, he said.

When Schaup-Werner's family heard about the couple's deaths, they notified the State Department of the similarities and requested an investigation, according to McDonald.

An autopsy found that Nathaniel Edward Holmes, 63, of Temple Hills and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, of Upper Marlboro died after their lungs filled with fluid, leading to respiratory failure, according to a news release from the Dominican Republic's National Police.

"At one point, she was sitting there happily smiling and taking pictures and the next moment she was in acute pain and called out for Dan and she collapsed", family spokesperson Jay McDonald said. "Following established protocols, the hotel doctor responded immediately and coordinated her transfer to Hospiten Santo Domingo".

The couple's bodies showed no signs of violence, police said.

Days before their deaths, Holmes posted Facebook photos of the couple enjoying their time in open waters. Cynthia Day and Nathaniel Holmes checked into the hotel the same day as the Werner's, and were set to leave on May 30th.

Univision reports that Robin Bernstein, the ambassador of the United States to the Dominican Republic, said the incidents were isolated cases - an assertion also made by the resort in its Wednesday statement. The couple were checking out five days later when they were found.

In 2018, about 6.5 million tourists visited the Dominican Republic, more than any other Caribbean nation, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organization.

An injured woman found on the street on March 27 was taken to a local hospital and later died on April 4. Moore's body was found at sea.
