New York man hounded on social media says he didn't order hit on David Ortiz
Tourist returns from nightmare Dominican Republic trip: 'Just don't go'
Police identify second suspect in David Ortiz shooting
The brother of real estate maven Barbara Corcoran was found dead in his Dominican Republic hotel room under the same mysterious circumstances as a number of other US tourists, the “Shark Tank” star has revealed.
Corcoran, 70, told TMZ on Tuesday that her brother John, 60, was on vacation in April with a friend when he reportedly died suddenly of a heart attack.
His death shares disturbing similarities to six other American tourists who have all passed away under mysterious circumstances on the island in the past year.
A Florida man who fell sick with a mystery illness during a Dominican Republic vacation is warning other travelers to avoid the country altogether, according to reports.
“Don’t go,” said Jerry Martin, who went with his wife to Caribe Club Princess Beach Resort & Spa in Punta Cana last month for their 40th wedding anniversary — before reports surfaced of American tourists dying at other hotels on the island, according to news station WTVT. “Just don’t go.”
Within days of arriving on May 17, Martin reportedly became severely sick with stomach pain while swimming in the pool.
“Fire in the bottom of my stomach. Pain, excruciating pain,” Martin told WTVT. “We were down at the pool when it hit, and I had to go up and just lay down and hold my stomach. It was on fire.”
