    California man died at Dominican Republic resort after drink from hotel room minibar

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

    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.

    Arnold said her uncle, an avid traveler, had been in relatively good health and just the month before had been skiing in Lake Tahoe.

    Arnold said the family has been particularly concerned after having recently learned of the other seemingly mysterious deaths in the Dominican Republic. Miranda Schaup-Werner, a Pennsylvania woman, died almost four weeks later, on May 25, after she had a drink from her minibar at another hotel, the Bahia Principe La Romana.
    ...
    Dominican officials said Schaup, Holmes and Day had pulmonary edema, a condition in which the lungs fill with fluid. They said Schaup, 41, who collapsed after having the minibar drink at the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville -- which is adjacent to the sister hotel where Holmes and Day died -- died of a heart attack, though her family said she was healthy.

    In recent days, the family of a Pennsylvania woman who was vacationing in the Dominican Republic last year said she died in her room at the Bahia Principe Resort in Punta Cana resort after she had a drink from the minibar. Relatives of Yvette Monique Sport, 51, told Fox 29 Philadelphia she was visiting the popular tourist spot last June, had a drink, later went to bed, and never woke up. Her death certificate said her official cause of death was a heart attack.

    On May 30, an engaged couple from Maryland, Edward Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 49, died in their room at the Bahia Principe La Romana. A hotel employee found them unresponsive in their room after they failed to check out.
    A couple dies at the same time. “Just heart attacks, nothing to see here.”

    Seems the mini-bar is a factor.

    More like bleach. Whatever it is, it’s far more toxic than methanol.

    New York woman found dead in the Dominican Republic a day after her 53rd birthday, son says

    A New York woman was found dead Tuesday in her hotel room in the Dominican Republic, just a day after celebrating her 53rd birthday, according to NBC News.

    Leyla Cox, who was from Staten Island, traveled to Punta Cana on June 5 for a birthday trip. She was staying at the Excellence resort, where she had stayed twice before, Will Cox, Leyla's son, told NBC's Nightly News.

    Amid several reports of other deaths of American tourists, Will said he tried to warn his mom, but said he wasn't able to before her death.

    "On June 11th, my worst fears came true," he said to NBC on Friday. "She was pronounced dead."

    While the family still has no confirmed cause of death, Will said that a Dominican police report listed that she died of a heart attack, according to Fox News.
    ...
    Instead of running toxicology tests, Will told Fox News that Dominican authorities are pressuring him to cremate or embalm his mother's body cremated or embalmed before returning it to the US.

    Apparently they are all-inclusive resorts, so that booze is free in the room.

    High quality, name brand booze, all you can drink? Yeah, hard to imagine that is really what is in those bottles, even without any “poisoning”.
