A California man is the latest American tourists to have died at a resort in the Dominican Republic, making him the fourth mysterious tourist death in the last several months, according to PIX11 affiliate FOX40.

American tourist Bell Wallace became sick and urinated blood after having a single whisky from his room's minibar on April 11. Arnold later died on April 14. No cause of death has yet been released to the family, which says Wallace was in good health before his death.

Cynthia Day, 49, and Edward Holmes, 63, stayed in an adjacent hotel, Grand Bahia Principe La Romana.

On May 25, Miranda Schaup-Werner, an Allentown, Pennsylvania psychotherapist, 41, collapsed shortly after mixing a drink from the minibar in the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville, where she was celebrating her 9th wedding anniversary with husband Daniel Werner.

Dominican authorities continue to investigate a third case that the victim recently made public on social media, detailing an hours-long assault by a man she said was wearing the uniform of an all-inclusive resort.

"We were having a great time ... and we ended up coming home as a broken family", she told Inside Edition. He was in the Dominican Republic to attend his stepson's wedding, according to Arnold.

"We didn't find out until the next morning that he had passed, which is another weird thing", Tommy Tickenhoff, Wallace's son-in-law, told KTLA sister station KTXL in Sacramento on Monday. "We want these tests and investigation to be carried out carefully and professionally". The FBI is assisting Dominican authorities on the ground with all six deaths.

While the Nokia 3 .1 A and Nokia 3 .1 C comes with the same hardware, they will be available through two different carriers. This device also misses out on a dual rear camera setup, which has become mainstream even in the budget segment these days.

"My husband's story needs to be told ... something's not right in the Dominican Republic", she continued. Authorities originally described the deaths as taking place in the same hotel. Both reportedly died of heart attacks.

In a news conference last week, tourism officials said the deaths might be coincidence noting that nothing like it has happened in the country before.

Another Pennsylvania woman died at the same resort in June 2018, her sister said recently while a Maryland man, David Harrison, died elsewhere in the country previous year, his wife said.

The New York Post reported that almost 70 tourists have reported getting violently ill while vacationing in the Dominican Republic since March, according to a commonly used website that tracks food-borne illness outbreaks.

It wasn't clear if Holmes and Day drank from the minibar, and their deaths were attributed by officials to respiratory failure.

Kaylynn Knull said she and her boyfriend enjoyed their vacation until they noticed their room beginning to smell of chemicals.
