American couple Edward Nathael Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, died while staying at the Playa Nueva Romana resort in the Dominican Republic.

Pennsylvania resident Miranda Schaup-Werner checked into a resort in the Dominican Republic on May 25 and was excitedly taking pictures in the room she shared with her husband.

Jay McDonald, Schaup-Werner's brother, said that she was diagnosed with a heart condition 15 years ago but has since been cleared medically.

It remains unclear whether the three deaths, of a Pennsylvania woman and a Maryland couple, are connected, but United States officials said they are actively monitoring the investigations.

"We offer our sincerest condolences to the families for their loss", it said. According to reports, Schaup-Werner settled in with a drink from their room's mini bar, and shortly after she screamed out for help before she collapsed to the floor. McDonald said that Daniel Werner, Schaup-Werner's husband, told him that she had an alcoholic drink, sat down to take a selfie and then stood up screaming in pain.

McDonald said Schaup-Werner's family heard about the deaths of Holmes and Day, who he said checked into the hotel the same day as Werner and Schaup-Werner. The couple was checking out five days later when they were found.

During the last week of May, a Black couple was found dead in their hotel room.

In a second tweet, Trump went on to compare Khan to New York's Mayor Bill de Blasio , who he called incompetent. Trump also said that Khan had been foolishly nasty to him as "by far the most important ally" of the U.K.

Tammy Lawrence-Daley told 6ABC she was beaten for two hours and dumped in a crawl space. On Wednesday afternoon, the Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts released a statement saying authorities have concluded that Schaup-Werner died of a heart attack.

The U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory for the Dominican Republic in April for crime before updating it in May to rank the nation a level 2 travel advisory for crime, which warns travelers to exercise increased caution.

"Something is going on, and we want to know what it is".

Their bodies showed no signs of violence, USA Today reports.

She said police did find a mop handle with blood on it, but the investigation stalled, and, after failing to negotiate an out-of-court settlement with the resort she told her story publicly. They were supposed to fly back home the day they were found.

La Romana is on the Dominican Republic's Caribbean coast, and has a population of about 130,000. But after an attack on a DE woman inside her Punta Cana resort in the country in mid-April, the State Department alerted travellers to exercise "increased caution in the Dominican Republic due to crime". Her death now marks the fifth American to die on vacation overseas in a matter of weeks - and three of those deaths happened at the same resort.
