Local Couple Dies While Vacationing in Domincan Republic

There were no signs of violence, according to Dominican officials.

Just five days before Day and Holmes' bodies were found, a Pennsylvania woman collapsed and died at the Baha Principe hotel.

The U.S. State Department is taking the situation seriously and are paying attention.

According to PEOPLE, on Thursday, the couple, identified as Edward Nathaniel Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Ann Day, 49, of Maryland, were found dead at the Playa Nueva Romana resort, according to a statement released by the resort. The couple were scheduled to return to the US that day. An autopsy performed on Holmes and Day determined that they died of the same causes, the Dominican Republic National Police said.

She said she was left for dead but was eventually found by her husband and friends. When the hotel staff let themselves in, the engaged pair was found lying there unresponsive.

A third American has mysteriously died at a resort in the Dominican Republic.

That's when Lawrence-Daley says a man wearing a resort maintenance hat and shirt strangled and beat her.

Police spokesman Col. Frank Durán said that immediately after authorities heard of the January attack investigators went to the hospital where 51-year old Tammy Lawrence-Daley of DE was being treated, took her testimony and collected evidence from where she said the assault took place.

Her disappearance lasted eight hours and the whole while she was going in and out of consciousness.

Lawrence-Daley has said in interviews with various news outlets that an effort to reach an out-of-court settlement had failed, and the resort's insurance company eventually sent a letter saying Majestic Elegance bore no responsibility since she couldn't identify her assailant as an employee.

Lawrence-Daley said the attack happened when she was walking on the property at about 10:30 p.m.to buy a snack. David Paul, 37, and his wife, Michelle Paul, 35, died two days apart after coming down with a violent illness that caused vomiting, diarrhea, hand numbness and shortness of breath also in the Dominican Republic in a hotel close by. She and her husband were celebrating their ninth wedding anniversary.

In March, a NY couple visiting the Dominican Republican was reported missing after they did not get on their flight home even though they checked out of their hotel at the scheduled time. The couple's bodies have been transported to the Dominican National Institute of Forensic Sciences for an exam. A toxicology report on Day and Holmes is still pending. Ravenelle reportedly had ended up at a hospital, where she died.

The U.S. Embassy is actively monitoring the investigations by Dominican authorities into these tragic deaths.

An investigation is underway in the Dominican Republic, after three U.S. citizens were found dead in a resort in the Dominican Republican city of La Romana at the end of May.
