What the hell is up with the Dominican Republic?

Big Papi shot, tourists being poisoned, beat up, dying mysteriously. It’s almost like the Dominican Republic is a $hithole.


Barbara Corcoran’s Brother Died Mysteriously in Dominican Republic.

Barbara Corcoran‘s brother was found dead in his hotel room in the Dominican Republic, and the circumstances sound eerily familiar to the 6 mysterious tourist deaths in the country over the past year … TMZ has learned.The “Shark Tank” star tells us her brother, John, was in the D.R. with a friend in April on his yearly vacation when he died of a heart attack.

At least, that’s what she was told. As far as she knows, there’s been no autopsy.

Barbara says her brother’s friend — who was staying in the same suite — discovered the body, but nobody knows exactly what happened.Corcoran tells us John was retired but owned a successful roofing company in New Jersey. She calls him “my favorite brother” among her 9 siblings and says he had a larger-than-life personality and would have been great on TV.


We’re told John loved visiting the Dominican Republic and was awaiting the arrival of his girlfriend before he died. There’s been no funeral yet, but a memorial service is planned soon.On the surface, a 60-year-old man dying of a heart attack might not be shocking … but John’s death comes amidst a bizarre and troubling trend of American tourists dying in D.R. hotels.Six U.S. tourists have been found dead since June 2018 — 2 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana, and 4 at various Bahia Principe resorts. Three of the deaths were reportedly due to heart attacks, but one also lists pulmonary edema — an accumulation of fluid in the lungs — according to the death certificate.A recently engaged couple from Maryland was found dead in their room in late May, and an autopsy reportedly found they also had respiratory failure and pulmonary edema.The cause of death of the other tourist is unknown.So far, the deaths are considered isolated incidents by D.R. tourism officials, but Dominican authorities are investigating and have asked the FBI for assistance for “further toxicology analysis.”

  1. Do we know if tourists from other countries, and natives, also are having these issues in these hotels? Wouldn’t that info assist in figuring out what’s going on?

  2. Wow, I’m sure glad I got my Dominican divorce years ago while it was still safe to go there. You didn’t even need a Passport, just your Birth Certificate… and $600.

  3. Once is an accident, twice is coincidence and this is #6?

    Only Americans keep dying and no one else so no biggie.

    Obviously, the local corruptocrats have no interest in squelching stories of a serial killer/gang/terrorists targeting their golden geese.

  4. janitor posted the big question, are americans being targeted specifically?
    It would be an easier place to do so outside our borders.

  5. The place is under a curse facilitated by Voodoo. Satanic ritual “hits” are real. Only the power of God can eradicate it. Until then, Western vacationers need to stop being so gullible. Stop going to this contemptible third world death trap until the Dominican authorities get a clue killing off their cash cow tourist industry is idiotic.

  6. Maybe it’s a culling of virtue signalling liberals who visit. Just trying to put a positive spin on it.

  7. So many of these victims drank from the room’s mini-bar. What kind of fluid would cause pumonary edema? That’s not a real common cause of death. Could there be a serial poisoner working in the hotel?

  8. Relax. A Category 8 hurricane will wipe Haiti and the Dominican off the face of the Earth in late August.

    Until then, go to Bermuda.
