Toxicology report pending for Maryland couple who died at Caribbean resort

Toxicology report pending for Maryland couple who died at Caribbean resort

According to PEOPLE, the Dominican Republic National Police announced that their autopsy found the couple had respiratory failure and pulmonary edema and found no signs of physical violence on the couple.

A Pennsylvania woman who was vacationing with her husband in the Dominican Republic died suddenly in her room, five days before a couple from Maryland passed away at the same hotel in similar circumstances, Fox News has learned.

The family of Schaup-Werner were distressed after learning of the similarity of Holmes' and Day's deaths and the possible implications and has contacted the State Department to request an investiation, McDonald said.

The hotel said it is cooperating with local authorities' investigation into the couple's deaths, the statement said.

The conclusion, the resort neighborhood mentioned, aligned "with reliable statements offered by Mr. Werner [Schaup's husband], who confirmed she had a history of coronary heart stipulations".

Friends of the couple posted on Facebook that conversations with them over the phone recently indicated they were happy and excited to return home and to their future as a married couple.

Tammy Lawrence-Daley after an assault at a resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in January 2019.

That's when Lawrence-Daley says a man wearing a resort maintenance hat and shirt strangled and beat her.

The Regional Institute of Forensic Sciences says in an initial report that 63-year-old Edward Nathaniel Holmes and 49-year-old Cynthia Ann Day of Maryland appear to have suffered respiratory failure and fluid in the lungs. "And even at that point it was an external swab, that was it", she said.

A typical luxury resort in the Dominican Republic claims that a US tourist who recently alleged that she turn out to be once assaulted there in January went public after they refused her demand for $2.2 million.

Holmes and Day arrived at the hotel on May 25 and were scheduled to depart on Thursday, police said.

FOX 5 learned Wednesday night that Day and her fiancé felt sick the night before they died and called a doctor but declined medication because it was too costly.

State Department now rates the Dominican Republic, which shares a border with Haiti, as a level 2 ("exercise increased caution") out of 4 on its Travel Advisory alert system.

The three Americans all checked into the hotel on May 25 - the same day Schaup-Werner died, the affiliate reported.

Lawrence-Daley, who has until July to find a lawyer to take the case in the Dominican Republic, said she hopes her story can at least lead to change.

Just six months into the year, there have already been at least five deaths and at least one attempted murder of American tourists in the Dominican Republic, which has been a popular vacation spot for years.
