Clyde was 3 different resorts but owned by the same company. toxicology reports are not completed as yet. The authority here have requested help from the US Embassy's legal group (read FBI).
but does seem unlikely that they have all been Americans, as Americans are not the largest group of tourists here.

Some of these cases coming out now are over a year old! makes you wonder.
kind of like your meto movement 1 starts and others follow.
Wait for the toxicology reports, am sure now that the FBI is involved correct testing will be done.
3 different resorts? But owned by the same company? realization in the highest form of oxy moronic lol

If some of the "stories" were a year ago shouldn't autopsies been complete?

Just one comment on the Ortiz shooting. I know many people including myself that would not be in that area at night on the weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FBI is involved due to request to the US embassy. Perception is that if their labs and investigation find something it will be more readily believed by the public than if put out by the Dominican authorities.
Still seems strange that out of 3 million tourist from all over the world that these six are all Americans
The one story that's hard to believe is the one or 2 that involve drinking bleach from something in the minibar! how could you not smell the bleach, prior to taking a swallow????

In some of the cases like the one that got beat up they never signed a complainant?

and further more out of the 3 million or so we have 6. while in the US I ran across this. and am sure it did not make international news markets as it's somewhat normal in the US.

i don't disagree that this stuff is suspect. fear makes money. U can say 3 million tourist all over the world even you know stuff happens like death you don't hear about in mainstream but like you i wonder what is up here...................really.

Anytime fbi cia nsa gets involved the fix was in already.

I wonder when DR tourism starts waver whose tourism picks up the "slack"

hmmmmmm
As far as Ortiz this is starting to look like a hit. rumor is he was fooling around with one of the drug lords girl friends and there was a previous altercation between them He is being medivac to Boston.

As far as tourism waver. mexico and Jamaica still get there share with the problems they have couple of months and will probably blow over as normally does
IMHO since these rather bizarre respiratory related deaths and illnesses seem to be somewhat contained to a specific area and not islandwide.

"This is a place to be avoided when you are booking your holidays," one Twitter user wrote.
"the whole dominican republic needs to be under investigation at this point," another wrote.

Not sure why the yahoo article included Ortiz with the current problems with the resorts as there is no connection between what happened. but is does help with the headlines.
Ortiz has been chalked up to womanizing with wrong woman. and he had been warned was not the best idea he has had.
but nothing to do with a resort and drinks from the minibar. Still have not figured out how you get past the smell of bleach to drink it.
the woman that was beat has more of less been judged as false.
FBI say expanded toxicology reports will take about 30 day so should know more mid July


Symbol looks like i am on the road again.. Back to Canada?????????????? What happened to the Dominican Republic???????????????????

bientempo it's Yahoo News, that's what they do. Yahoo is the cyber version of The National Enquirer. 95 year old pregnant Hungarian women, calves born with human heads and South American natives who marry trees is breaking news. As for your dilemma all new PC's have Microsoft VPN's built into their security suite. That may be what's causing this. Lately NORTON has been hawking their version that's battling McAfee SafeConnect VPN and has messed up some of my PC's but now I complete a full recycle, reset the OS and reconfigure the hard drive and they're good to go. Nothing goes on the hard drives anymore, everything goes on flash drives. From the DR to Canada. Quite a ride. Here's some road music for ya bro.

So now the focus of similarity are the hotel room minibars. Obviously these victims were rich. That crap cost like 5 times what you would pay in the hotel deli/cafe. I stay at Seminole Hard Rock Casino Hotels and the minibar price list is a sick joke. Who is that lazy to drink or eat that way past expiration date snacks and drinks? Not like that swill could dare be adulterated by housekeeping or worst someone intent on causing serious physical damage to guest not to mention the reputation of the hotel.
