Another American Tourist Dies While Vacationing in Dominican Republic Raising Travel Concerns and Suspicion

The Dominican Republic is back in the news with yet another death at the same hotel. According to Fox News and Pennsylvania TV station WFMZ, Miranda Schaup-Werner collapsed on May 25 after consuming a drink from the mini bar at the Grand Bahia Principe Hotel in La Romana. Just five days prior a Maryland couple was found dead in their hotel room.

Jay McDonald, Schaup-Werner’s brother in law told news outlets that she and her husband were celebrating their ninth wedding anniversary in the Dominican Republic. She was just 41 years old at the time of her death.

McDonald also told WFMZ, ”At one point, she was sitting there happily smiling and taking pictures and the next moment she was in acute pain and called out for Dan and she collapsed. He was understandably in shock but the whole thing was just so stunning.”

With the deaths occurring at the same hotel, raising concerns and suspicion are increasing.
