Three Deaths Reported At Dominican Republic Hotel

The families of three people are reeling after their relatives passed away while on vacation.

On Tuesday, Fox News reported that a Pennsylvania psychotherapist, Miranda Schaup-Werner, died in her room on May 25, five days before a couple from Maryland, Edward Holmes and Cynthia Day, were found dead in their room.

The three died at two separate buildings in the Dominican Republic, both owned by the Spanish-based Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts.

The couple reportedly died of respiratory failure and Schaup-Werner, passed way reportedly from heart complications. Their families aren’t convinced however that these were all “freak accidents” and they’re calling their deaths “suspicious.”

On Wednesday afternoon, the Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts released a statement to FOX News saying authorities have concluded that Schaup-Werner died of a heart attack.

The conclusion, the resort group said, aligned “with official statements provided by Mr. Werner [Schaup’s husband], who confirmed she had a history of heart conditions. During the event and in the days that followed we provided our complete support to Mr. Werner in collaboration with local authorities and the U.S. Embassy. We once again express our condolences to Mr. Werner and his family and friends on the passing of Mrs. Schaup-Werner.”

The resort group also added that the deaths of Holmes and Day remain under investigation pending the results of toxicology and histopathological tests.

We’re praying for the families involved in these tragedies, it’s quite bizarre that this keeps happening. Coincidence or something more sinister?
