Long Island pizzeria owner becomes the 14th American tourist to mysteriously die in the Dominican Republic after he ‘suffered respiratory problems after having a drink’ – and now Hard Rock Hotel is removing its liquor dispensers amid the crisis
Vittorio Caruso, 56, a pizzeria owner from Long Island, is the 14th U.S. tourist to die under strange circumstances in the Dominican Republic in the last year
His death was revealed Saturday along with Jerry Curran, a 78-year-old cop who died in January while staying at the Dreams Resort in Punta Cana
Three days after he arrived at the resort on January 22, Curran began vomiting and was unresponsive – he underwent surgery but died hours later.
His daughter – Kellie Brown – sent $40,000 to try to help her father in surgery and the former officer’s wife also used $10,000 on her credit cards
Many red flags have come up for Kellie and her sisters but the resort asserted that it followed protocol
The resort also noted that the tourism minister in the DR already said that the deaths were a result of natural causes
Tourism Minister Francisco Javier García told reporters that autopsies for eight of the fatalities show the tourists died of natural causes
Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana says it has hired a U.S.-based health care company to inspect the premises. It has also barred liquor dispensers
A Long Island pizzeria owner has reportedly become the 12th documented case of an American tourist who has died in the Dominican Republic under mysterious circumstances in the past year – as one of the hotels at the center of the scandal decides to remove liquor dispensers in response to the spate of deaths.
