    In the latest episode, a Pennsylvania woman died inside her Dominican Republic hotel room just days before a Maryland couple was found dead at the same resort, U.S. officials confirmed.

    Miranda Schaup-Werner, 41, a psychotherapist from Allentown, died shortly after her arrival at the Grand Bahía Príncipe hotel in La Romana on May 25.
    ...
    Just five days later, Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 49, were found dead in their room at the same resort. Doctors said they died from fluid in their lungs.
    ...
    The U.S. State Department did not identify an exact cause of Schaup-Werner's death.

    However, McDonald said in his statement that the official cause of death was respiratory failure and pulmonary edema, or fluid in the lungs. He also said he felt the three cases were connected.

      "According to statements from the National Institute of Forensic Sciences (INACIF) and the National Police Investigations Unit (DICRIM), Mrs. Schaup-Werner’s cause of death was determined to be a heart attack, aligning with official statements provided by Mr. Werner, who confirmed she had a history of heart conditions," Bahia Principe wrote.

      The message conflicts with a statement from a family spokesperson who said Schaup-Werner died from respiratory failure and pulmonary edema. While the U.S. Department of State confirmed Schaup-Werner's death with NBC News, they did not identify an exact cause.
      ...
      On May 30, Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 50, an engaged couple from Maryland, were found dead at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana, an adjacent hotel on the same Bahia Principe property.

      Investigators said Holmes and Day died from respiratory failure and pulmonary edema. The Department of State said in a statement they were "not aware" of any connection between the death of Schaup-Werner and the deaths of Day and Holmes.
      ...
      Police said investigators are looking at the possibility carbon monoxide poisoning is to blame for Holmes' and Day's deaths...

      Dr. Joseph Schellenberg, LVHN pulmonary and critical care physician, says even with pre-existing conditions, the three deaths are an eerie coincidence.

      "Usually if you're saying the same people at the same time, toxic exposure should also be probably up there, if not higher, as a potential cause," Schellenberg said.

        Dominican Republic deaths: Autopsies show similarities for three U.S. victims

        By Arelis R. Hernández June 6 at 3:03 PM

        Dominican government officials released more-detailed autopsy results Thursday for three American tourists who died at adjacent beach resorts owned by the same hotel company during the last week of May.

        All three victims experienced eerily similar symptoms and internal trauma before their deaths, according to a news release from Dominican authorities. Pathologists said autopsies showed the three had internal hemorrhaging, pulmonary edema and enlarged hearts.
        ...
        The FBI is providing Dominican law enforcement with “technical assistance with the toxicology reports,” the State Department official said.

          Knull said even after changing rooms, the mysterious symptoms continued.
          "That night, we both woke up soaked in sweat at like four in the morning and kind of terrified," she said. "And we booked a flight home before the sun came up."
          Back in Colorado, records show, a doctor's diagnosis: "Likely Organophosphate poisoning", a reference to pesticides Knull believes were being used on the plants all over the resort...

            Health, environmental inspectors conduct tests at Dominican resorts where U.S. tourists died

            Elizabeth Llorente By Elizabeth Llorente | Fox News
            ...
            The testing is the first public indication that officials in the U.S. and the Dominican Republic are considering the possibility that something other than natural causes -- which the Bahia Principe Hotels and Resorts group, the Spain-based owner of the properties where the deaths occurred, has tried to stress -- could have led to the three deaths, which happened in the short span of five days.

            Among the organizations conducting testing are the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and Dominican health experts, according to reports. The deaths occurred in two hotels that are nearly adjacent -- The Grand Bahia Principe La Romana and The Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville.

            The results of the testing may be announced as early as Friday, CNN reported, citing Carlos Suero, spokesman for the Dominican Republic Ministry of Public Health.

              California man died in April at Dominican Republic resort after drink from hotel room minibar, family says

              Elizabeth Llorente By Elizabeth Llorente | Fox News

              A fourth U.S. tourist died after he fell critically and suddenly ill at an all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic about a month before three others died in their rooms, Fox News has learned.

              Robert Bell Wallace, 67, of California, became ill almost immediately after he had a scotch from the room minibar at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino resort in Punta Cana, his niece, Chloe Arnold, told Fox News on Sunday. He was in the Dominican Republic to attend his stepson’s wedding.
              ...
              The U.S. State Department, responding to questions about Wallace's death, said in a statement to Fox News: "We can confirm the death of a U.S. citizen in April 2019 in the Dominican Republic. We offer our sincerest condolences to the family for their loss. Out of respect for the family during this difficult time, we do not have additional information to provide."

                Tourist death count at Dominican Republic resorts rises

                By Lee Brown June 10, 2019 | 7:52am | Updated

                Another American tourist died while vacationing in the Dominican Republic — bringing the recent spate of mysterious deaths to six and prompting an investigation by the FBI, according to a new report.
                ...
                The FBI confirmed to Fox that it was joining the investigation into deaths on the island, with experts also conducting tests at the Bahia Principe, where the first three tourists died, according to the network.

                The troubling pattern of deaths emerged with news that an engaged couple from Maryland, Edward Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 49, were found dead in their room at the Bahia Principe La Romana on May 30.

                They had checked in on the same day that Miranda Schaup-Werner, 41, of Pennsylvania, collapsed and died in her room after having a drink from her minibar in a neighboring hotel on the same resort on May 25.

                    U.S Embassy Statement on the Safety and Security of U.S. Citizens in the Dominican Republic

                    ...
                    As Ambassador Robin Bernstein has said publicly, “The safety and security of U.S. citizens that live in, work in, and visit the Dominican Republic remains our highest priority. These incidents are tragic and we offer our deepest condolences to those personally impacted.”

                    The U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo is actively working with the Government of the Dominican Republic and the private sector at the highest levels to ensure that U.S. citizens are safe and feel safe while in the Dominican Republic. Dominican authorities have asked for FBI assistance for further toxicology analysis on the recent Bahia Principe, La Romana cases and our FBI colleagues tell us that those results may take up to 30 days. We ask everyone to be patient while these investigations run their course.

                        A New York woman, 53, is the latest American tourist to die in the Dominican Republic, long one of the top Caribbean destinations for U.S. travelers.

                        Leyla Cox of New Brighton went on vacation June 5 and was expected to return on June 12, as The Staten Island Advance reported.

                        Cox, who had traveled alone before, was found dead of a heart attack in her hotel room, according to the news outlet.

                          Son of tourist who died Monday at Dominican resort says he's being pressured to allow cremating or embalming before body's return to US

                          Steve Harrigan reports from Santo Domingo.

                          The son of a New York hospital technician who died suddenly in her room at an all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana says Dominican authorities are resisting doing toxicology tests and pressuring him to have her body cremated or embalmed before its return to the U.S.

                          Will Cox, 25, told Fox News on Friday that his mother, Leyla, who died Monday evening at the Excellence resort, was on a solo trip to celebrate her 53rd birthday and was in good health.

                          A Dominican police report, which Cox showed to Fox News, listed the cause of death as a heart attack.

                          Cox, who said he has been in daily contact with the U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo, maintained that Dominican officials have stonewalled as he has tried to learn more about the circumstances of his mother’s death, and as he has pressed to have toxicology tests performed.

                          Cox said he did not speak directly to Dominican authorities, but rather communicated with embassy officials relaying information from the authorities.

                          “They put me against a wall,” Cox said, referring to Dominican authorities, in a telephone interview from his home in Tennessee. “The Dominicans said that I had to sign papers giving them permission to take her to a funeral home, and if I didn’t do that in four hours, they were going to consider her a 'Jane Doe.' They said I had to give them permission to cremate her or embalm her, or I would never get my mother back.”

                          "If they classified my mother as a Jane Doe, they told me I would be forfeiting the body," Cox said. "I will never receive a death certificate. I will never receive my mother's remains. ... They did conduct an autopsy, but they will not tell me what it says."

                          The news of her death comes as the popular Caribbean vacation destination grapples with a rash of deaths of U.S. tourists in their hotel rooms at various luxury resorts. Families of the tourists said they were generally in good health...
