Authorities Believe Engaged Maryland Couple Found Dead In DR Resort Is ‘Unusual’

Maryland Couple Found Dead In Hotel Room At Dominican Republic Resort

She had a drink at the hotel's minibar before falling ill and collapsing suddenly in her room later on.

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

McCoy says she's not surprised - she stayed at a different resort but says in all it cost $20,000 dollars to get her husband home. She could not be revived, despite her doctor-husband performing CPR.

Five days after a Maryland couple was found dead in their Dominican Republic hotel room with no signs of violence, authorities still don't know what caused their death from respiratory failure.

Hotel staff members went into their room and found the couple unresponsive Thursday, said spokesman Frank Felix Duran Mejia of the Dominican Republic National Police. When they did manage to locate her, she had injuries serious enough to keep her in the hospital for five days.

A lawyer for the families of the Brandywine couple say they plan to have second autopsies conducted in the US once the remains arrive here.

"That's not something that we were aware of prior and we really want an independent medical review here in the states", McDonald said.

NBC-4 in Washington, who first broke the story locally, reports the family is questioning the authenticity of the investigation in the Dominican Republic. On Wednesday afternoon, the Bahia Principe Accommodations & Resorts launched a assertion announcing authorities have concluded that Schaup-Werner died of a coronary heart assault.

"We can confirm the recent deaths of three USA citizens in La Romana, the Dominican Republic - Nathaniel Edward Holmes, Cynthia Ann Day, and Miranda Schaup-Werner".

The causes of death for the engaged couple, Edward Nathaniel Holmes and Cynthia Ann Day, was determined to be respiratory failure and fluid accumulation in their lungs.

The US State Department confirmed the three deaths.

The Regional Institute of Forensic Sciences said that, in the case of Holmes and Day, further tests are required.

CNN has reached out to the resort and the Dominican Republic National Police for more information.

At the meantime, a Pennsylvania woman collapsed and died at the Bahia Principe Hotel in La Romana, Dominican Republic.

In 2018, about 6.5 million tourists visited the Dominican Republic, more than any other Caribbean nation, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organization. The U.S. State Department released the following statement to ABC 7 Chicago. She said the man who attacked her came at her from behind and forced her into a maintenance room.

The assertion about Lawrence-Daley comes amid the knowledge that three USA tourists died last week in their rooms at two separate hotels in the Dominican Republic, each owned by the Spanish-based mostly Bahia Principe Accommodations & Resorts. "And even at that point it was an external swab, that was it", she said.
