Number of Mysterious US Tourist Deaths in Dominican Republic Hits 6

Fourth American Reported to Have Died at Dominican Resort

Fourth American Reported to Have Died at Dominican Resort

Robert Bell Wallace, 67, of California, died after drinking from the minibar in his room at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino resort in Punta Cana, his niece, Chloe Arnold, told Fox News.

Punta Cana is a town at the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic and touches the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. He was also a rancher.

Arnold said a hotel doctor later checked on Wallace and determined on April 13 that he needed to go to the hospital.

Five days later, Edward Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 49, of Prince George's County, Md., were found dead in their room at Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville, a nearby hotel, after they failed to check out.

On Monday, travel expert Mark Murphy appeared on Fox News to discuss the latest incidents and provide some perspective for American travelers ahead of summer vacation. Wallace died the day of the wedding, Tickenoff told the station.

Concern has grown over the mysterious deaths of American tourists at hotels in the Dominican Republic after a sixth fatality was announced, the New York Post reported.

Levine said she and a friend were planning to stay at one of the resorts where Americans died. "My husband's story needs to be told ... something's not right in the Dominican Republic". The FBI is helping local authorities investigate these deaths.

Thousands of miles from home, Wallace became the first of four American tourists and one of two staying at the Hard Rock Hotel to die while vacationing at Dominican resorts and possibly partaking of minibar liquor. Within five days, three USA tourists died in their rooms at hotels owned by the Bahia Principe Hotels and Resorts group, a different hotel chain than where McCoy and her husband stayed.

Maria Hudson said she and her boyfriend were going to Punta Cana but axed the trip after reading about the deaths. But Felecia Nieves, Sport's sister, questions that. In a June 7 statement, the Bahia Principe said it has a "firm commitment to collaborate completely with the authorities and hope for a prompt resolution".

Another Pennsylvania woman died at the same resort in June 2018, her sister said recently while a Maryland man, David Harrison, died elsewhere in the country previous year, his wife said. They say they experienced headaches, nausea, cramping and diarrhea.

"Heart attack" was listed as the cause of death. He said the investigation was complicated by the woman's inability to identify the attacker from a lineup of all employees on duty at the time.

She said that her son, who was a veteran, "was healthy".

Steven Bullock, a lawyer for Day's family, said autopsies and tests will be performed on Day and Holmes in the US.
