FBI joins Dominican Republic probe into deaths of American tourists: US Embassy

Santo Domingo.- The US Embassy on Thursday said the investigation into the deaths of three American tourists while vacationing in the Dominican Republic “have not established a connection between the incidents” thus far.

It said it’s in contact with the Dominican authorities and “actively follows up the investigations.”

“In addition, at the request of Dominican officials, our Legal Liaison (FBI) is providing technical assistance to produce complete toxicology reports. We still do not have the results of the toxicology studies,” it said in a statement.

It adds that they are also aware of the concerns raised by the relatives of other US citizens who died earlier while in the Dominican Republic, in reference to the couple Nathaniel Edward Holmes and Cynthia Ann Day, who died May 30 at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana hotel in San Pedro, and Miranda Lynn Schaup Werner, 41, five days earlier at Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville.
