Honeymooning bride hospitalized high school students fall ill in Dominican Republic

In the sorority, prosecutors say women were allegedly branded with Raniere's initials and required to hand over compromising material, including nude photos of themselves, and told it would be released if they tried to leave, The New York Times reports. McCoy said it took a long time for a doctor to arrive and he died.

Every year, about 2.7 million Americans visit the Dominican Republic.

Some family members of those who died said their loved ones became ill after drinking from a minibar.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has kicked off investigations on the odd and shocking deaths of tourists traveling in the Dominican Republic.

On Tuesday, Tracy McCraw, of Madison, Miss., told The Post that she was on a flight full of sick passengers on her way home from Punta Cana.

"I would say if they wanted to go to the Dominican Republic, it probably wouldn't be through Plaza Vacations", Siragusa said.

On Wednesday afternoon, the family of 53-year-old Joseph Allen learned that he died of a suspected heart attack at a resort in the Dominican Republic, and his sudden passing occurred under similar, suspicious circumstances to nine other Americans on the Caribbean island since last summer. One of the causes of death listed was pulmonary edema, his daughter told WKYC. He was in the Dominican Republic to attend his stepson's wedding.

Currently, the CDC and the FBI are investigating four deaths at various Grand Bahia Principe properties: Nathaniel Edward Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, were found dead in their hotel room May 30 at the Bahia Principle La Romana. A family spokesman told news outlets that she collapsed after getting a drink from the minibar.

Kaylynn Knull, 29, and Tom Schwander, 33, woke up in their hotel room at the Grand Bahia Principe with a pounding headache. When hotel employees checked on them, they were dead, police said. His death was also ruled a heart attack, according to media reports.

John Corcoran, a retired roofing and siding executive in his 60s from Edgewater, N.J., and brother of "Shark Tank" star Barbara Corcoran, was found dead at the end of April in his room at an unidentified hotel in the Dominican Republic, Fox News reported.

"People die all over the world", Suero told Fox News.

There are more questions about traveling to the Dominican Republic after another American tourist is found dead at a resort there.

Allen wasn't responding to the knocks on his door so friends alerted the front desk, who performed a wellness check.

This story was reported from Los Angeles.
