It saddens us to report that over the past few weeks, over 5 Americans have died while staying at resorts in the Dominican Republic. A New Jersey man named Joseph Allen, 55 years old died last week while staying at a resort in the DR, becoming at least the ninth American tourist to die under mysterious circumstances in the last year while visiting.
#JosephAllen ‘s family says they are lost for words and scrambling for answers. The night before he passed, the family members said that Joseph complained to his friends about the heat and went back to his room to take a shower and lay down. “The maid opens the door, screams and then slams the door. My brother was on the floor dead, between his room and bathroom” says Jason Allen, Joseph’s brother.
There has been a series of mysterious deaths on the small island but none of them are connected, according to authorities. The food and beverage department of Dominican Republic is now under fire. The ambassador stated “these incidents are tragic and we offer our deepest condolences to those personally impacted”.
This is a sudden tragedy and we are keeping the families of the fallen lifted during this time.
