Undeterred travelers score cheaper tickets to Dominican Republic after spate of mysterious deaths

His sister-in-law, Lisa Maria Caruso, told the news outlet that Vittorio, who was supposed to return home on June 27, had been in good health prior to the trip. Caruso was a smoker and alcoholic, per the post-mortem reports. Meanwhile, the Hard Rock Resort in Punta Cana, where one American died this year, said they are removing liquor dispensaries from rooms, not due to the death there, but to provide "tranquility to guests".

The spat of deaths and illnesses sparked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to deploy agents to the island; probing pools, air conditioners, food, and water at luxury resorts to determine the cause of the mysterious ailments.

"We offer our sincerest condolences to the family for their loss", the spokesperson said.

The hotel stated that they will hire an American healthcare company to "ensure the on-site health clinic is complying with all global and United States standards", Hard Rock told the New York Post in a statement. He was celebrating his retirement while on vacation in the Dominican Republic. Officials from the Dominican Republic have downplayed the incidents, noting that the deaths appear to have been caused by natural causes and that the numbers are in line with what would be expected, given the large number of US tourists who visit the country each year - 2.7 million in 2018, according to the State Department. She said everything they have been told seems like a cover-up for something deeper than heart failure.

Kellie was upset when she got a phone call notifying her of her father's medical predicaments around 3 am on Friday. The CDC confirmed that Caruso's body will not present any risk of transmitting anything harmful to those who attend the wake.

Kellie sent $40,000 while her mother put $10,000 on a credit card. She collapsed and died a short time later. Also listed were Cerebral hypoxia, severe encephalitic cranial trauma and subdural hematoma. They are trying to have that corrected.

"It's not true that there has been an avalanche of American tourists dying in our country, and it's not true that we have mysterious deaths", Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia told reporters. The FBI is helping local authorities with toxicology tests in at least three of the recent deaths. "It amounts to a awful image crisis for the Dominican Republic because the US is the no.1 source market for tourism to the destination and its economy is highly dependent on foreign visitors - 17.2% of GDP and 39.1% of export revenue, according to the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC)".
