Relatives of Robert Bell Wallace are seeking answers for the sudden death of the 67-year-old man that occurred in April in a luxurious hotel in Punta Cana. This would add up to four deaths of North American tourists that occurred in hotels in the Dominican Republic in the past two months.
Chloe Arnold, niece of the deceased, -resident of California- told FOX News on Sunday that her uncle became ill almost immediately after consuming a whiskey from the minibar in his room at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino hotel. The man was visiting the country to celebrate his stepson's wedding and, according to his niece, he was in good health.
"He was fine," the woman exclaimed, explaining that Wallace and his wife, Beverly, arrived at the hotel on April 10 at around midnight. The next day he took a whiskey from the minibar and immediately began to feel ill. There was blood in his urine and feces.
Arnold explained that the couple called a hotel doctor who performed a checkup, three days later it was decided that Wallace needed to be hospitalized. He died on April 14 and to date the Dominican authorities have not revealed to the family what the causes of his death were.
The niece explained that her uncles were avid travelers who traveled all over the world and that just a month earlier they had spent a few days skiing in Lake Tahoe. "We have so many questions," the woman exclaimed to FOX. "We don't want this to happen to anyone else."
"We can confirm the death of a United States citizen in the Dominican Republic in April 2019. We offer our sincerest condolences to the family for their loss (…) we have no additional information to offer," said State Department spokesmen..
Wallace's mysterious death is in addition to the death of Miranda Schaup-Werner, 41, from Allentown, Pennsylvania, who died last May after consuming a drink from the minibar in the Bahía Príncipe Hotel room in La Romana.
Five days later, inside the same hotel, the bodies of Edward Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, were found. At the time of the discovery, it was said that both had suffered respiratory failure and that there were medications for high blood pressure in your hotel.
However, chilling coincidences between those three deaths were discovered in the past days after the autopsy publication revealed that the three bodies had an enlarged heart, according to The Daily Mail.
These deaths have become more prominent following the statements of Tammy Lawrence-Daley, 51, who lives in Delaware, who says she was brutally beaten, strangled and left dead at the Majestic Elegance Resort hotel, also in Punta Cana.
"My husband was in shape, he was a healthy person when he died," says Beverly, the widow of Robert Wallace who offered an interview to the show Inside Edition (FOX). The woman explained that her husband had undergone a general medical check-up before his trip and that, apart from the high blood pressure, which he controlled by taking pills, everything was fine.
