How to Become a Bounty Hunter



FBI Assists Dominican Republic with Mysterious Deaths of Americans

The FBI is assisting authorities in the Dominican Republic investigate a string of American tourist deaths in recent months.

Six American tourists have died of unknown causes at resorts since late last year, CBS reports.

The first death involved a Maryland man who died while celebrating his wedding anniversary with his wife at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino late last year.

At the same resort in April, Robert Wallace became ill quickly after drinking a scotch from the minbar and died three days later.

At the Bahia Principe resort, Miranda Schaup-Werner and Yvette Monique Sport died of heart attacks, according to death certificates, but Sport’s sister, Felecia Nieves, is skeptical.

“We were promised within three months that we would receive a toxicology report. To this day, which is almost a year now, we’ve got nothing,” Nieves said.

Also at the Bahia Principe resort, Edward Holmes and Cynthia Day both died in their rooms after celebrating their engagements.

Of the nearly seven million tourists who visit the Dominican Republic, U.S. residents are the most common.
