FBI Report - DR Deaths were from Natural Causes
FBI Report - DR Deaths were from Natural Causes

Remember this?

Well after ‘extensive testing’ the FBI cleared the Dominican Republic of the ‘mysterious deaths’ media frenzy.

Let’s hope the media doesn’t dredge up unresearched accusations about your past.

In a nutshell: The FBI’s extensive toxicology testing confirms ‘Natural Causes’ were the cause of death.
Do you think it’s fair that the media can make unresearched – and unfounded – accusations?    Accusations that hurt the Dominican people.
According to a statement given to Fox43 by the State Department`s Bureau of Consular Affairs, “extensive toxicology testing completed to date have been consistent with the findings of local authorities.  Our condolences and sympathy go out to the families during this difficult time.”

Was there another motive to the onslaught of news causing so much doubt and confusion? 

We can’t answer that, however, while the passing of tourists was very unfortunate, there weren’t any findings of a nefarious nature.

Fortunately, tourists are returning to the Dominican Republic.

And there are HUGE investments in new resorts opening like mega-Moon Palace Punta Cana, the Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana, and Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana.

The Dominican Republic’s Tourism Office is hyper-focused on the task of rebuilding traveler confidence.  (see the link below for all the details)

Did media coverage cause you to cancel your vacation to the Dominican Republic?   Let us know in the comments.
