The family of another Pennsylvania woman who vacationed in the Dominican Republic last year says she died in her room at the same resort chain where the deaths of three other US tourist died last month.
The family of Yvette Monique Sport, 51 told Fox29 Philadelphia, that she was vacationing at a Bahia Principe Resort in Punta Cana last June and now they are calling for the State Department to launch an investigation.
Relatives say that Sport had a drink from the mini bar inside her room, went to bed later, and never woke up. Her death certificate listed her cause of death as “heart attack.”
The details of Sport’s death sound eerily similar to reports of 3 US tourists’ deaths at the same resort just last month.
Sport’s actions preceding her death are identical to those of Miranda Schaup-Werner of Allentown, who collapsed and died on May 25 of this year, after having a drink from the mini bar in her room. Five days later, another couple from Maryland, Edward Holmes and Cynthia Day were found dead in their room.
Schaup died at the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville, Holmes and Day died at the adjacent resort Bahia Principe La Romana.
Sport also stayed at another Bahia Principe property in Punta Cana with her fiancé, Howard Taltoan, in June 2018.
Sport’s sister Felecia Nieves told Fox 29 that she questions if the cause of death the family received is even true.
“We were promised within three months that we would receive a toxicology report to this day, which is almost a year now we’ve got nothing Nieves said.
“I think the State Department needs to step in and investigate these deaths something is not right,” Taltoan said.
